Zion I & The Grouch are still riding high on the success of their new album, Heroes In The Healing Of The Nation. The album dropped in late March, and since release the Bay Area trio have been hitting the road, making stops across the country as part of their “Heal The Nation Tour,” which just wrapped a string of sold-out shows throughout the West.
This Friday, April 15th the second leg of tour kicks off, running through the Midwest and along the East Coast, and to celebrate the second leg and give fans a chance to get a behind the scenes glimpse into a day in the life of Zion I & The Grouch on tour, the group teamed up with satostudio.com and thefgtv.com, filming their recent show at The Tropicana in Sacramento, California.
In other Z&G news, the trio are excited to announce the launch of their â€œDrop It On The 1â€ Dance Contest, giving fans and dance enthusiasts the chance to submit a video of themselves breaking to Z&G’s new single for a chance to win two tickets to any upcoming Zion I & The Grouch show as well as the opportunity to perform on stage with the group.
