The Zen Tricksters Acoustic Tour: from 2003 Jeff Mattson-lead guitar, vocals Klyph Black-bass, vocals Tom Circosta-guitar, vocals The Zen Tricksters, on acoustic tour in 2003, blend two acoustic guitars, bass, and three vocals to produce a bigger sound than one would believe possible. Ranging from their tuneful and well-crafted original pieces to traditional bluegrass and hillbilly jazz classics, to Grateful Dead, Dylan, and inventive interpretations of any and all songs that catch their fancy, the Tricksters have a huge working repertoire. ZTAT is also renowned for the trademark jamming ability these guys have displayed for over two decades in their larger, electrified form. This is not your Mother's acoustic band. They will rock you, psychedelicize you, make you cry, and pick it with the best of them!
