Brown fronted a three-tiered LED light display all night and when it was lit to look like the inside of your grandfather’s log cabin, that felt normal—not to mention pretty good. Electric Zac Brown in front of 40,000 strong on a perfect summer night shredding will probably never falls short of amazing, but Brown on banjo effortlessly plucking on a Jimmy Buffet-leaning summer jam, well that’s as right as settling into your grandma’s well-worn rocking chair for the afternoon. Over the course of two and a half hours they moved between traditional country, sweet Philly soul, bluesy guitar solos, and every now and then, burn-the-farm-and-the-barn-too rock n’ roll.

 

 

  • Brown also recalled opening for Dave Matthews Band twice throughout the evening and by the second time, right before they launched into DMB’s “ Stay ”, the point became clear: ZBB wants to be considered a jam band more than they want to call any genre home.
  • Zac Brown’s occasional candor.
  • As mentioned, Brown paid tribute to the armed services and when two Navy Seals marched on stage as the heartbreaking Jason Isbell tune (which ZBB recorded for Jekyll + Hyde), the crowd erupted into “USA” chants and deafening applause.
