The Zotz formed in Spring 2015 originally as a 2-piece guitar, vocals and drums. After a few months of playing, Bobby and Shawn decided to complete the sound by adding a bass player.  A few line-up changes later, we'd like to welcome our good friend and our new bassist Chuck Shermetaro to the group.  

Coming together to create a unique sound reminiscent of the 70's old school punk with hooks and relatable originals songs based on life experiences. They are fast, hard and fun. Simple and fast drum hits, dynamic leads with sarcastic and heartfelt vocals and rockin bass lines that cut through. The Zotz are a refreshing unique, but surprisingly familiar sound that will make you want to bop your head, tap your foot, shake your fist in the air, and smile, laugh, sing along and dance. Our live shows are always fun and we want to include our audience to join in and have as much fun as us.

The Zotz are all about having fun and playing some great rock n' roll. The Zotz have a 4 song EP (recorded with bassist Matthew Moran) (out of print), as well as "Fire It Up" our first full length cd (recorded with bassist Toby Stone), and our most recent CD released October 2023, "Upside Down" (recorded with bassist Paul Garza).  Both cds are available at our live shows, this site, Dearborn Music, Spotify and Apple music.  

We are looking forward to seeing all you punks at our next show.

Come experience the fun side of punk with The Zotz.
