Winter Carnival 2007

FULL CIRCLE: THE LAST LATE-NIGHT CARNIVAL

Born out of the project Zuvuya, the current members of Zilla first united in March of 2003 under the name Crop Circle Brain Factory for a legendary late-night Winter Carnival after-party next door to the Fillmore w/ Elastic Mystic (Bassnectar & Michael Kang duo)

After 3 more Winter Carnival runs, over 300 Zilla concerts to date, a half-dozen cross country US tours, 2 tours of Japan, 5 tours of Canada & Alaska, 2 trips to the Caribbean, the band’s very own multi-day camping festival, & a countless number of landmark career moments, it becomes apparent that none of this magic may have ever been if it wasn’t for Zilla’s epic late-night Winter Carnival after-parties each March in Colorado.

The recent news of the upcoming String Cheese disbandment brings with it many new beginnings & final experiences for all of us, but in the Zilla community, the most missed tradition will surely be the band’s Winter Carnival after-shows, which have been responsible for shaping the Zilla community from the very beginning. This March we will travel Full Circle & collectively share what may prove to be the last of the Winter Carnival Zilla After-Parties, which have truly been the lifeblood of Zilla since show number One!

SCI Winter Carnival: Zilla After-Parties

Sat, 3/24     Cervante’s    Denver, CO    w/ OOAH
Tue, 3/27     8150 Club    Vail, CO         w/ OOAH

Zilla : all iZ

9.05.06

ZILLA "ALL IZ" - NOW IN STORES 

Zilla- "all iZ" CD cover created from artwork by visionary artist Luke Brown (spectraleyes.com)

ok friendz- here it iz: The official announcement from SCI Fidelity Records:

"Colorado trio ZILLA [The String Cheese Incident’s Michael Travis (drums, percussion, keyboards, sampler, mallet Kat) Jamie Janover (hammered dulcimer, Mini-kit, electric kalimba, mini-sitar, sampler, percussion, tamboura, tongue drum, water) and Aaron Holstein (bass, keyboards, sampler, vocals/vocoder/beatbox)] always keep the live musical experience in mind. A 100% organic, improvised creation, each ZILLA concert proves to be a completely unique occurrence, with even the band members having no idea where the music will take them night after night. Relying on their uncanny ability to listen and incorporate their individual talents into a group focused brand of live electronic dance music, ZILLA is sweeping the country with their rare breed of beats, bass and uncontrollable musical fury.

all iZ, the band’s first studio release, which is due to hit streets on September 5,  2006, offers two full discs of musical spontaneity, flow, grooves and a damn good dance party! Its 13 tracks were improvised live in the studio in Boulder, Colorado in February 2006."

Official announcement from Zilla: Travis, Jamie, and Aaron would like to sincerely thank our dear bro and keyboardist Steve Vidaic for all of his contributions to Zilla. We each truly feel that Zilla could never have become what it has without Steve’s involvement. He has had a huge part in the development of the band’s concept and sound. Steve’s involvement in the band Citizen Cope has now grown to a full-time commitment which has made it impossible for him to continue playing with Zilla. We sincerely wish him and Citizen Cope great success. The remaining three of us have found in our usual upside-down and inside-out manner that playing as a trio has created a new layer of musical connection between us. We have each had to stretch ourselves musically and spiritually to make the trio fly. The result has been a very positive experience for us. We are each completely inspired by the new Zilla and ready to plunge forward as a trio. We love you Steve, thank you for helping to create Zilla and for helping the band to find its hidden inner trio… we wish you the very best.

04/11/05
Zilla Spring Tour 2005 is off to a great start. Whistler, BC and Vancouver shows were a blast. Zilla loves BC! Jason Hann, Billy Nershi, and Michael Kang added to the swirl and many laughs were shared. Zilla is safely back on the US side of the border and many nights of full tilt Zilla madness to ensue. More reports from the road soon....

03/03/05
We are currently in Park City, UT. Tour has been good to us - skiing and music every day is a routine we can get used to. The music is constantly evolving and improving - we are very much looking forward to the many gigs booked including the Joshua Tree Music Festival, the Bobolink Music Festival and late night after SCI in Denver on 3/26. I knew that calling our tour "Bussy on ice" would mean that we never hit a single patch of ice and it worked! Thanks to all of you who have come out in support of the music on this mountain west ski tour. More soon. Peace, Jamie Janover

12 Galaxies
12 Galaxies

Big changes to the upcoming july west coast Zilla mini tour.
Our previous plan revolved around the Lollapalooza schedule, playing San Francisco and Santa Barbara when String Cheese Incident was to be off. As I am sure you know, Lolla was cancelled and much scrambling was done to re-rout SCI (and our pal and Drummer, Travis) Thus, the Zilla show scheduled for Monday July 19 in San Francisco has been Cancelled. The Show in Santa Barbara at Soho also is Cancelled……
So check this out….

Instead, Zilla will be playing at The Warfield, opening for String Cheese Incident on Wednesday July 21 AND playing a latenight show after SCI at 12 Galaxies.
As planned, Zilla will be @ The Knitting Factory in LA on July 22 and on Saturday July 24th in Las Vegas latenight at The Boston.

There is a review of Zilla in the August-September issue of Relix Magazine (page 24)


6/23/2003
Zilla at the Sheridan Opera House In Telluride, CO included many special guests. Stanley Jordan & Justin King both sat in on guitar. Stanley played a jam with Zilla & then was left alone on the stage for a few solo tunes. Then he was joined by Justin King on guitar & they did a duet as the rest of the gang watched from the side of the stage. As the band, one by one, returned to the stage they were joined by Future man (drums) and Jeff Coffin (sax) from Bela Fleck & the Flecktones. Then came vocals from Liza Oxnard & Libby Kirkpatrick. Much madness ensued....
(Zilla B-Day: Aaron Holstein turned 32 years old onstage at midnight 6.23.2003)

6/9/2003
Zilla had big fun this past weekend in Colorado. Guitar legend Stanley Jordan joined the band for the entire show on Friday the 6th @ Cervante's Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver. Stanley is an amazing person and an amazing musician. The band was honored to have him play with us on his night off in Denver.
Saturday night in Boulder was a full-tilt Zilla hometown hoedown. A blast! Second set the band was joined by drummer extroirdinaire Joe Russo. Then in the middle of the set Michael Kang (the String Cheese Incident), Jans Ingber (the Motet), and Sunny Michelson (Chupacabra) jumped on stage causing the party to turn into an all out joy-fest.

Pictures from the weekend are up on the Photos page. MP3s from the weekend are on there way up on the MP3s page- check back often!
Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend!

Back from our maiden voyage aboard the road-ship "Bussy"! We all had an incredible journey. Tour was a musical adventure


from night to night. Each show unfolded into uncharted musical realms that we have never visited before. Our crew helped us beyond words, the crowds were all very kind - they listened and DANCED! Thank you to all of you who came out and contributed to the vibes that we created together. We really appreciate your support and energy. The tour was a healing experience for all and we are inspired to play more. There are 4 June gigs coming up - check the schedule page. We are hoping to put together a live CD form the best of the May tour (we recorded the whole tour).

Zilla - The Crop Circle Brain Factory Tour 2003
Zilla will be hitting the road on their 2003 "Crop Circle Brain Factory" tour starting with a gig in New Orleans on May 3rd (during the famous Jazz & Heritage Festival). This late-night show is billed with another Boulder based band called Cabaret Diosa along with Hamsa Lila from San Francisco. From there the band heads north through Texas and the mid-west to Chicago and Madison for their last show on May 18th.

Zilla with be riding in style in "Bussy" - the trusted work horse that The String Cheese Incident used to tour in for years. You can recognize her because she has a mural of an Aspen grove all across her sides and even has a place to carry your skis along the side (she used to shuttle skiers from the town of Crested Butte, CO up to the ski mountain).


4/28/03
Just announced - Zilla will perform a late night show in Telluride, CO during the 30th annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival at the Sheridan Opera house on June 22, 2003 in Telluride, CO. Libby Kirkpatrick is opening the show.
