CITIZEN ZERO with special guests KENT KOLLER TRIO and TRIPP 'N' DIXIE at the Pike Room

doors at 8pm
tickets: $8 ADV; $10 DOS (buy tickets)


Rochester, Michigan based rock band CITIZEN ZERO will debut their aggressive yet melodic alternative rock sound at The Pike Room (inside The Crofoot Ballroom) on Saturday, February 26, 2011 in downtown Pontiac. Doors are at 8 pm, tickets are $8 and available at the door. Local rockers Tripp “N” Dixie and the Kent Koller Trio open this ALL AGES show.

Citizen Zero is comprised of singer/songwriter Josh Mayle on lead vocals, and three very talented brothers: Matt (guitar), Greg (bass) and John (drums) Dudley. The Dudleys are part of a longtime musical family (dad Roger is a guitarist and encouraged his sons along a musical path from a very early age), and at just 16 years old, John Dudley is already a drummer to be reckoned with, having trained under current Ozzy drummer Tommy Clufetos. The Dudleys experienced near-tragedy in 2008, when Greg endured a crippling snowmobile accident that left him with little use of his left arm – but John and Matt refused to move on musically without him, and Greg has learned to modify his bass playing to remain part of the group.

Currently recording their debut CD with Kid Rock’s engineer Al Sutton at Rustbelt Studios, Citizen Zero is eager to test out their potent brand of rock on a live audience. “As much as we all love being in the studio, we are all in this to play live. To connect with the crowd on that level; there is no greater feeling on earth,” explains Mayle. The Pike Room show will be the band’s first public live performance. Adds bass guitarist Greg Dudley, “We’re excited to play music together and share our art with everyone! “

With strong support by local rockers Tripp “N” Dixie and Kent Koller – this show is sure to be one that will make you look back and say “I was there” – because Citizen Zero is definitely going to be a band that fans will be seeing (and hearing) much more of!
