Music on the Move: Dave Zollo

Tuesday, Aug 23, 2022 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm


Music on the Move began as a Truckload of Soul in 2020, when musician Kevin Burt approached Summer of the Arts about bringing live music to neighborhoods in the midst of a pandemic. In the back of a pickup truck, he played his guitar for some much-needed sound! The idea went over so well that we decided to bring back the concept in 2021 as Music on the Move.

In 2022, we are partnering with Iowa City’s Parks and Recreation Department to bring even more music to the neighborhoods: instead of twice per month, we will be out and about every week during June, July, and August with the Rec & Roll program!

Dave Zollo: Since bursting on to the midwestern music scene with the band High and Lonesome in 1992, David Zollo has had a busy career. Along with constant touring, in the U.S and Europe, with High and Lonesome (1992-1998;) and his current band, The Body Electric (1998-present) Zollo has recorded 7 records of his own material, including the most recent, 2015’s “For Hire.” In addition, he founded and operated the seminal, Iowa-based, roots music label, Trailer Records (Bo Ramsey; Joe and Vicki Price; Greg Brown; The Pines; Brother Trucker; Kelly Parkeooper; Pieta Brown, as well as his own work, and that of others, from 1994-2005;) played keyboards and sang harmonies on many records by Nashville folk singer Todd Snider; fellow Iowan William Elliot Whitmore, and Greg Brown, amongst many other artists; and worked as a producer (The Pines; Brother Trucker; Kelly Pardekooper.) Last year, he also formed a new band with Whitmore, guitarists Stephen Howard and Steve Doyle, and Body Electric drummer Brian Cooper, called Middle Western. Their debut release, When Your Demons Are Under Ground And You’ve Got To Dig Them Up. was recorded at Lone Tree, Iowa’s Flat Black Studios, and was released in 2018.
