On Friday, April 19th at Iowa City's downtown Java House, IPR Studio One's Ben Kieffer will host a "Java Blend" show with Iowa rock legend Dave Zollo!

Ben Kieffer will chat with Mr. Zollo to find out more about the rocker's expansive career, and Zollo will also perform a live 50-minute set. This program is free and open to the public!

If you're a follower of the midwestern indie music world, you might be forgiven for thinking David Zollo has been around forever. The truth is, it just seems that way.

Since bursting on the scene as a baby-faced 21-year-old with Iowa City's white-hot, road-chewing pub-rockers, High and Lonesome in 1992, Zollo has done just about everything you can do in the rock and roll business. Whether as a singer/songwriter/keyboardist with his own bands; as a sideman for an incredible array of roots music talent (Todd Snider, William Elliot Whitmore, Greg Brown, Bo Ramsey, The Pines); as founder/owner/ operator of legendary underground label, Trailer Records; or producer to up-and comers (The Pines, Brother Trucker), Zollo always maintained a ridiculously frenetic schedule, logging thousands of miles and 200+ gigs a year, doing all of these things at an incredibly high level

Of the many things that David Zollo does and does well, it is on stage that he seems most comfortable and happy. Long known as an exuberant, passionate performer, it is clear that at present, Zollo is relishing the opportunity to do what he does best: make music.
