Progressive bluegrass band Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who’d ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn’t rely on amplification. Simonett hadn’t played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young (who’d previously played drums in a speed metal act) and jam band bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass. -Andrew Leahey

    Back in the 90’s I took my little son to see his first concert at the zoo. I can’t afford concerts there for myself anymore. Being a senior has its drawbacks when it comes to entertainment. Being at the zoo during a concert would bring back sweet memories.

  60. Afton June 13, 2018 at 11:36 am #

    This would be so much fun! I’ve been wanting to go to one of the zoo summer concerts!

  61. Bonnie Nicholas June 13, 2018 at 4:39 pm #

    I have literally had my feet cramp while dancing to TBT. Please give me another chance to be Crampled by Turtles.

  62. Wendy Casey June 14, 2018 at 2:23 pm #

  86. Mel June 19, 2018 at 9:27 pm #

    Because Deer Tick has got me through the worst times, and after 10 years of living in Portland, I’ve yet to step foot in the Oregon Zoo…this would make my yearrrrr.

  87. Madeline nico June 20, 2018 at 1:17 pm #

    Dream show would love to see trampled by turtles this summer instead of having to go to Colorado to see them I could see them here in Oregon !!!

  88. Tim June 20, 2018 at 3:42 pm #

    The Zoo is a great venue for this type of music. I would love to have a couple of tickets to go see these guys live!

  89. Mrs KV June 21, 2018 at 10:07 am #

    We haven’t seen them live yet and haven’t seen a show at the zoo either, a bucket list show!

  90. Keena June 21, 2018 at 3:24 pm #
