Zapp unleashes funky, high-energy music with a contagious groove. Vibrating with moog bass, electrifying guitar riffs and fresh, clever lyrics, the tight-knit group’s songs demonstrate a wicked sense of humor and an unmatched ability to tell colorful stories and write solid, memorable hooks. Made up of masterful musicians who have been getting down together since the late 1970s, the group’s sizzling chemistry can be attributed to the fact that it has always been a joyful family affair. In the tradition of stylish masters such as James Brown, George Clinton, Stevie Wonder and Sly Stone, Zapp members’ layered recordings and Las Vegas-style live shows have established them as trailblazers in both songwriting and showmanship. Over the course of the past 30 years, Zapp’s and Roger’s music has been sampled hundreds of times by artists around the globe, including Jay Z, Lil’ Kim, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit and Ice Cube. In 1995, Roger collaborated with 2Pac and Dr. Dre on the smash hit “California Love” that reached #1 on the “Billboard Hot 100”. Though Roger sadly passed away in 1999, the thrilling Zapp legacy lives on: Zapp has just released a brand-new album titled “Zapp VII: Roger & Friends” featuring Mr Talkbox, Tuxedo, Bootsy Collins, Snoop Dogg & Kurupt. 

Hits include “More Bounce to the Ounce” (produced by Bootsy Collins), “Doo Wa Ditty”, “I Can Make You Dance”, “Heartbreaker”, “Computer Love”, “Dance Floor, Part 1”, “I Want to Be Your Man” and much more.
