Performing while under prepared should be a musician’s worst fear…right? Apparently not! When it comes to Zach Deputy, imprecise planning is what makes his act so unpredictable. After realizing his bassist couldn’t make show a while back, Deputy went right on without him and began looping instrumentals and vocals: a real DIY. Performing as a one-man band with the energy of five, he characterizes his music as, “island-infused drum n’ bass gospel ninja soul.” What’s that mean? I’m not quite sure. I characterize his music as funky and bluesy experimental rock. Regardless, he’s bound to leave your jaw hanging to the floor, with the question in your mind: “How the hell did he do that?”

Deputy will perform tonight at Buffalo Iron Works at 9pm. Tickets cost $15 at the door.
