ZWB is a Rock n Roll band from Sacramento, CA. This power trio consists of Drummer Steve Pires, Bassist/Vocalist Grayson Roberts, and is fronted by Guitarist/Vocalist Zach Waters. ZWB creates a raw experience, bringing the party back into rock n roll through high energy performances, and that angsty, dirty rotten rock n roll that is reminiscent of the classics. Influenced by artists that have spawned a generation of head banging party rockers, ZWB hopes to leave behind an original stamp. Previously dubbed as “The Zach Waters Band”, ZWB is the product of vision, development, and brotherhood, dedicated to facilitating an environment to cut loose through music. This power trio has performed hundreds of shows across the West Coast since 2016, and has plans to venture nationally.

When I first got to the club, the parking lot was full. That made me smile, I walked in and saw that the place was packed!

A lot of people out there claim to be rock n roll, but rock n roll is so much more than a couple hours of music on a Friday night. Rock’n and Roll’n is a lifestyle, an energy that cannot be denied. Rock n Roll is about loud guitars, banging drums, stomping bass, and coming together to fight the challenges that life throws at us. So let’s all come together, and let the music take us far away


ZWB has been fortunate enough to share the lighted stage with acts such as: Dokken, Y&T, Pat Travers, Albert Cummings, Frank Hannon (Tesla), LA Guns, Gretchen Menn, Ron Artis II, Chris Cain, Tommy Castro, Jackie Greene, Atomik Tommy McClendon(UFO) The Darbies, and others! Furthermore, Zach Waters is also an endorsed artist for Tantris Picks, and Thimble Guitar Slides. In 2018, the readers of SN&R Magazine voted the band as the best Blues/Rock act in the Sacramento region, and in 2019 were nominated for 3 Sacramento Music Awards (Blues, Teen Artist, Live Performer.) In 2020 The Zach Waters Band was nominated for yet another Sacramento Music Award for Rock Artist of the year. ZWB have also had TV/Movie song placements (“Lookin’ To Play” as well as “Misery Blues”) on national television (Fox Sports) as well as independent films.

As of 2021, ZWB has released 3 singles, a live album, and is currently working on their debut studio album.
