Martin Zellar

NEIL! - A Tribute to Neil Diamond

Event date: 2/23/2024 7:30 PM Export event

Martin Zellar

Martin Zellar first appeared on the Twin Cities music scene in the late 80s as the lead singer and songwriter for the alt-country pioneers, Gear Daddies. The Gear Daddies recorded two albums on Polygram Records, appeared on Late Night With David Letterman, and toured extensively before amicably parting ways in 1992.

Zellar has gone on to perform and record as a solo artist and with his band The Hardways, releasing eight more albums on the Rykodisc and Lee Owens Recordings labels.

More than 30 years down the road from his first release, Martin Zellar continues to make his living writing, recording and performing music. Now living in Mexico with his family, he returns each year to Minnesota to share fan favorites and new music with his audiences.

“...writers from Dylan to Springsteen, often tell us far more about the human condition by concentrating on life’s everyday moments. That’s the strength of Martin Zellar...” - Robert Hillburn, Los Angeles Times.
