9pm go see The Zealots
Rock anthems and melodic instrumentation define the original sound of The Zealots from Bettendorf, Iowa. The music scene is struggling in Iowa, which is why The Zealots are aiming to be something new and different. After forming in the summer of 2014, they started mixing rock genres into a masterpiece. The Zealots are nothing but original. In late 2014 The Zealots were the first band from Iowa to collaborate with Joey Sturgis & his team at mixingbros.com. They went on to mix & master the single Chips the Fish. After hearing the final version of the song, The Zealots knew they had struck gold. In early 2016 the boys were discovered by Will Stevenson at the Artery Foundation. The Zealots signed with the management, making them the first Iowa band on their roster. They went on tour in the summer of 2016 & rocked out 5 different states. The band is comprised of five members: Micah Martin, Ryan Housenga, Jeff White, Colton Menke, & Adam Housenga. Please listen for yourself, you’ll be glad you did.
