Zebras in Public

We have a great feeling when we get together. Each band member has a strong musical past. We play our styles, we feel our sounds, and we live the music. We want to give you the feeling we have with our music. We feel solid and unbreakable when we play together. The crowd feels it too. We play it for mankind. We all live. We all die.
