About Zebra

Zebra galloped out of New Orleans in early 1975. The trio, consisting of Randy Jackson, Felix Hanemann and Guy Gelso, concocted their moniker from a 1926 Vogue magazine cover and soon won over the South and East Coast.

In 1982 Zebra’s self-titled debut album went gold and was the fastest selling debut album in Atlantic Records’ history thanks to the radio and MTV airplay of “Tell Me What You Want” and “Who’s Behind the Door?”. Veteran producer Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith, Cheap Trick) also helmed the follow-up, “No Tellin’ Lies”. The songs range from the hard-rocking “Wait Until the Summer’s Gone” to the Beatle-esque ballad, “Lullaby”.

With the release of their third Atlantic album “3.V”, Zebra took their career one step farther: the album’s credits read “Produced by Randy Jackson and Zebra”. Thus, for the very first time, the group gained complete control of its creative output. A collection of the finest songs they have ever written, “3.V” clearly shows Zebra’s lasting power and originality.

In all, Zebra fans enjoyed a total of five videos aired on MTV and have given the band combined album sales of nearly 2 million worldwide.

Zebra emerged from the studio again in 2003 with “ZEBRA IV”, on Mayhem Records. This could possibly be the best effort by Zebra to date with powerful cuts which include “Arabian Nights”, “Why” and “Waiting To Die”.

Zebra’s live performances often last over two hours and showcase their new material along with all the classic Zebra tunes: “Who’s Behind the Door?”, “Tell Me What You Want”, “Wait Until the Summer’s Gone”, “Bears”, “One More Chance” and other all-time favorites including an occasional Led Zeppelin cover.

“ZEBRA THE DVD”, released in 2008 captures the band’s energy and power on stage. The DVD features live concert footage from both Long Island and the House of Blues in New Orleans in addition to several interviews and bonus features.

In 2010 Zebra was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and is acknowledged as Louisiana’s #1 Rock and Roll band by the Louisiana Music Commission.

On October 18, 2012 Zebra was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.

What Passengers Think

My husband and I took a chance and booked our first ever cruise in December 2011 after listening to a radio commercial about a cruise with ZZ Top, George Thorogood and John Kay playing and cruising with us (among many other great bands!). This was “Woodstock on Water”! We have been on every one since and have made many new friends who we correspond with throughout the year and look forward to seeing every year. There should be a different word than “Cruise” to describe this because it does not compare to a standard cruise by any means. Seeing- greeting-hugging-taking pictures with so many of our idols – PRICELESS!! Pam and the NAHA staff do an outstanding job and we always book as soon as each cruise booking opens – no need to wait to see who will be rockin’ us! If you like classic and southern rock and have not booked this cruise, do not wait or you’ll miss out. It sells out earlier every year. (Love to all the Dfers and FB Rock Legends Cruise Fans and FB Rock Legends Cruise Party’ers!)

Judy Diaz, DON'T MISS OUT! Judy Diaz, DON'T MISS OUT!

This was my 5th RLC out of 6 and will be on the next one in 2019. It is the only way to do a cruise and one of the best ways to have an over the top rock ‘n roll experience. There are three venues with shows going on from 10 am to past 12 midnight – every day! Once you’re done for the night, the convenience of your cabin is just steps away. The RLC lineup speaks for itself. There is so much talent, legends and upcoming rockers, on the ship! The people, your fellow rockers, are all there for the same reason – rock ‘n roll! Don’t be surprised if you run into a few rock stars on the elevator or just hanging out watching a show.
