Punta Gorda Top 40 Cover Band Rocks Brains
Newly Formed Zombie University Has Something for Everyone
Local Top 40 cover band Zombie University has been creating quite a stir lately in Punta Gorda’s nightlife. The newly formed band just celebrated their first birthday last month at Harpoon Harry’s in Fishermen’s Village. The band’s lead guitarist (and one of the lead vocalists) Bobby Ricci put the group together last year with bass guitarist Craig Holder, drummer Bobby “Cupcake” Richmond, lead vocalist Celina “Lina G.” Rodriguez, lead vocalist Ceara “Schae” Rodriguez, and lead vocalist/keyboard player/guitar Francesco Maceri. The band plays a variety of both new and old Top 40, and is always adding new material to their repertoire. The band has a pretty full show schedule through the end of the year, but is also available for private parties and events in addition to shows at various Southwest Florida venues. Zombie University is also a finalist for SPOT Magazine’s 2012 “Best New Local Artist/Band” award.
