Zac Brown Serves His Fans From a Kitchen on Wheels
If you’re heading to a Zac Brown Band concert, you may be in for a treat. As his followers know, the band and crew regularly feed 200 fans before the show during their ‘Eat and Greet.’
“They’ll be able to eat amazing food, and see a four hour show and really have a full sensory experience,” Brown recently told Slashfood. “A lot of concerts leave you wanting for something good to eat or drink while you’re there. This is our step toward super serving the fans.”
And don’t think Brown would be serving anything less than the best. He’s had a restaurant of his own, and he takes his food seriously. In fact, the band’s tour bus even travels alongside a kitchen within a tractor trailer.
“We built a 53-foot tractor trailer that’s a kitchen,” Brown said. “I had a restaurant in Georgia for a while, and I really miss feeding everybody.”
“Everybody in my family cooks, so growing up and being around it … if I was going to spend time with everybody, it was helping them in the kitchen,” Brown added during the video interview.
Zac Brown and friends released a cookbook last year, which includes recipes from the road, plus favorites from home. All 27 recipes — including his own renditions of fried chicken, fried green tomatoes and peach cobbler — are featured on removable index cards. It’s available via the band’s official store.
