About Us

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!
