Sara Zacek / Bio

As early in my life as I can remember, I had always wanted a guitar. As a kid I received my first guitar for Xmas. I was so eager to play it that before I had the chance for anyone to teach me, I took it upon myself to tune it. Little did I know that all the strings were NOT supposed to sound the same... Three broken strings later I brought the guitar to my Mom, and with tears rolling down my cheeks I told her I would never touch a guitar again... Mom said to put it in the car and she would take it back and return it. On my way to the car, on that icy evening, I slipped on a patch of ice and happened to land on not only MY butt - but the butt of the guitar as well. It was ruined...
Years later, while working at a local daycare, I came upon an old guitar in the back of the storage closet. Memories of that sad little girl from years before came flooding back to my mind. "Perhaps another try?" I thought. I inquired on who it belonged to, and they said that it was there when they bought the place - so if I wanted it, it was Mine!! Little did I know, this would be the key to unlocking my heart & opened the doors to a life filled with LOVE & MUSIC, and an endless array of my lyrics to share! Being self taught, I started playing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and other Nursery Rhymes to the 3 & 4 year olds. I then found myself moving on to local coffee houses, and other facilities who wanted musical entertainment.
Through the years, I have had the Wonderful opportunity to be a part of the musical groups "Voices of Eve," "Simple," and "The Sara Zacek Band."
I have been hosting "Open Jams / Open Mics," performing for Benefits, Festivals, Weddings, Funerals, singing "The National Anthem" at sporting events, and have opened up for Aaron Tippin, The Nylons, Dot Dot Dot, and REO.
I LOVE performing my own originals, and I also enjoy doing covers - with a twist - a little part of me mixed in! (Covers of Jewel, Deanna Carter, James Taylor, Cranberries, Shaun Colvun, Colin Hay, and others... I love writing and performing - That feeling I get when I look around and can see & feel, my music is touching everyone listening...
I am in the midst of putting together my second CD, and buckling up for this exciting road ahead!! :) Yay!!
