A very special reunion.

Two shows: April 29 & 30

*Proof of vaccination against Covid-19 will be required for entry.

After a couple sold out reunion shows in 2019, the mighty New Hampshire Alt-country outfit Say ZuZu has officially started writing a new chapter. Reunited as a six piece, ’ZuZu returns home to The Press Room to kick off the new era.

The band appreciates your willingness to show a negative COVID test from 48hr window prior to entry. #KeepTheMusicAndCommunityHealthy

Say ZuZu began as a folky trio made up of brothers Jon and James Nolan and their mutual friend Cliff Murphy. After discovering Uncle Tupelo and Neil Young in the early 90s, the band’s direction quickly came into focus as the band tapped into a growing alt-country movement which spawned artists like The Old 97s and Wilco and inspired a generation of artists including The Avett Brothers, Kacey Musgraves and others. In their road warrior days, the band toured tirelessly from Maine to Chicago, Texas and Georgia, but found their greatest success abroad as minor stars in Italy, developing a European fanbase and signing with Germany’s Blue Rose Records. After more than 10 years, 10 albums, and logging more than 2000 shows in 25 states and four foreign countries, Say Zuzu called it a day, amicably, in 2003.

Until now.
