Martin Zellar – Rooftop Concert Series – June 2

Jun 2, 2024

7:00 pm

Martin Zellar first appeared on the fertile mid-80s Minneapolis music scene as the lead singer and songwriter of the alt-country pioneering Gear Daddies.



In 1986 the Gear Daddies signed with Gark Records, a small Minneapolis independent label, and released a 45rpm record (She’s Happy b/w 2-18) and a full-length LP, Let’s Go Scare Al. In 1998, they made the jump to Polygram Records, at that time the biggest label in the world.

The Gear Daddies released the critically acclaimed album Billy’s Live Bait in 1990, toured non-stop, and performed on Late Night with David Letterman (Letterman was a fan of the album) before amicably parting ways in 1992. Zellar then went on to record and perform as a solo artist, releasing seven more albums on the Rykodisc and Owen Lee Recording labels. His 1993 release, Born Under, and his 2012 release, Roosters Crow, were especially well-received by critics.

Martin Zellar has made his living as a singer-songwriter for over 35 years because he has always reliably delivered what his fans have come to expect from him: quality songwriting and heartfelt performances.
