ZEBRA galloped out of New Orleans in early 1975. The trio, consisting of Randy Jackson, Felix Hanemann and Guy Gelso, concocted their moniker from a 1926 Vogue magazine cover and soon won over the South and East Coast.

ZEBRA's self-titled debut album went gold, and at that time was the fastest selling debut album in Atlantic Records history thanks to the radio and MTV airplay of "Tell Me What You Want" and "Who's Behind the Door?"

ZEBRA's live performances showcase all the classic ZEBRA tunes, and for this year only will consist of the debut album in order for the first time. "Who's Behind the Door?", "Tell Me What You Want", "Wait Until The Summer's Gone", "Bears", "One More Chance" and other all-time favorites, including mindblowing covers of LED ZEPPELIN.

In 2010 ZEBRA was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame and is acknowledged as Louisiana's No. 1 rock and roll band by the Louisiana Music Commission. On October 18, 2012 ZEBRA was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall Of Fame.
