Zach Deputy Pilots the Caribbean into the Rook by Ryan Smith

Friday, Sept. 1

Take a multi-talented one-man jam band, infuse a hefty toke or two of Caribbean Island influence, then toss in an unconquerable amount of infectious positivity, and you’ve got something like Zach Deputy. Well, I mean, you’ve got my description of something like Zach Deputy.

“Deputy’s ability to create a full-band sound as a solo artist is something that needs to be seen to be believed.”

But it’s like the King’s Rook Club’s Ryan Bartosek says: Deputy is “quite mesmerizing. [And] his ability to create a full-band sound as a solo artist is something that needs to be seen to be believed.”

Rook show-goers can achieve the latter by means of the former when Deputy — joined by evening-opening special guests Stereo Nest and after-party closing act The LEC — comes to the Rook.

Any — every — one of longtime jam-scene mainstay Deputy’s shows are a full-on, all-out groove fest, so “the Rook is the perfect place to see an act like him,” says Bartosek. “His shows are always full of hundreds of people dancing all night long.”

Sounds to be about the right place for it, alright, and, as always, a damn fine time indeed. — Ryan Smith
