Eat & Greet with the Zac Brown Band

Zac Brown Band does backstage like no other artist!  His backstage area is "HOME OF THE EAT & GREET"!   They are gonna feed ya buddy!  And it's some good ol' southern BBQ too!  

The Gorge did not open the gates for ZBB until 5:30 pm, BUT that was the same time the Eat & Greet was suppose to start.  So we had to go outside the venue to find P1's to give our Eat & Greet passes.  We didn't want to cause a scene, so if anyone recognized us then we would hook them up.  Well, that didn't take long...

We gave them their wrist bands and told them to follow us!  

We waited for a few minutes while they got the backstage area all set up. It was so much fun to chat with everyone, and even had time for a few photos!  Look at Wingo on the right hand side!  That's Randy The Biscuit in the well...I guess that's a pink shirt, right?!  HA!  :)

They brought us all back and sat us down at these long picnic tables, and said, "at a normal back stage meet and greet, you are told not to take any pictures and then you get kicked out.  We think that it's much better to sit down, break bread together, hang out like we would if were at our homes".  

This is Zac Brown explaning the philosophy with Chef Rusty.  

They go on to share what's on the menu for the evening.  Then, Zac Brown and the entire band serve you the food!   Zac wanders around the "Eat & Greet" saying hello and chatting with people.  If you felt the urge, you could go over and say hello.  Zac is the most mellow, down to earth guy.  He's super easy to talk to, and kinda like the guys from Duck Dynasty, you can tell under all that facial hair is a really good lookin' guy! HA!


Get a look at this plate!  Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Tenderloin, Zac Brown's secret rub on the beef tenderloin grilled medium rare, Zac's famous Pocket Knife Slaw that is mustard based, Muffuletta Salad, Spaghetti Squash, Brown Sugar biscuit, some other yummy stuff I can't remember, and Chocolate Bourbon Bread Pudding!  I ate ALL of it!  

We also had the pleasure of visiting with Zac on his bus.  I noticed that he had several instruments hanging on the wall, along with a Crocodile Dundee looking hat.  I guess he wears that when he goes on hikes at the venues where they play.  They hiked all over The Gorge on Saturday during the day!  

Just a good ol' dude from Georgia, Zac is one of the nicest guys out there making country music!  He has a cook book out with all the recipes for the things we ate!  Looks like I'm gonna have to pick up a copy and get down to some BBQ'in business!
