Greenville Zoo Foundation Announces 2019 PNC Bank Zoo Tunes Lineup

PNC Bank Zoo Tunes, Greenville’s wildest outdoor concert series, is bringing two new artists to Greenville for live musical performances against the distinctive backdrop of the Greenville Zoo. Hayes Carll will kick off the concert series on June 28, and St. Paul & The Broken Bones will perform on August 24. Tickets are general admission with full access to the zoo. A VIP ticket option adds access to a restricted area with complimentary beer, wine and food. All attendees receive a beer in an exclusive souvenir cup upon entry and a zoo admission ticket for future use. Tickets are now available online at http://zootunes.eventbrite.com.

Hayes Carll is a singer/songwriter with a rock and roll heart and a country soul. The Texas native has won a devoted following in roots rock and Americana circles for music that honors the traditions of vintage country but with the swagger and swing of rock. His much-anticipated album, What It Is, was released in February, and the result is a musically ambitious and lyrically deep statement of an artist in his creative prime. On March 11, Rolling Stone included Carll’s song Times Like These on its list of the 10 best country and Americana tracks of the week. Kelly Willis and Kenny Chesney have recorded his songs and his television appearances include The Tonight Show, Austin City Limits and Later w/Jools Holland.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones is a widely-praised rock and soul band based in Birmingham, AL. Since their debut album in 2014, the band has toured all over the world, becoming a fan favorite with a reputation for must-see live performances. Television appearances include The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, Austin City Limits and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. With the band’s most recent album, Young Sick Camellia, vocalist Paul Janeway created a space for St. Paul & The Broken Bones to rival any forward-thinking band making music today, based on a concept all-too-familiar to him: family, and how we love them despite our differences.

The PNC Bank Zoo Tunes outdoor concert series is in its fourth season, with past performances by top artists in rock, folk, soul and blues. Proceeds from the event help the Greenville Zoo Foundation fund world-class animal care, conservation projects and award-winning educational programs at the Greenville Zoo. PNC Bank Zoo Tunes is a 21 and older event.
