Squirrel Nut Zippers
Turn up the heat
It’s not a reunion – it’s a revival! The quirky, nine-piece band Squirrel Nut Zippers reignited last year in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their album Hot which launched the hit songs “Hell” and ”Put a Lid on it.” A vintage mashup of Delta blues, pop/rock, and jazz, they’re often grouped with swing revival bands like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, but the Zippers are far more unpredictable. As NPR put it, “It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.” The Zippers’ core is rock instrumentation plus horns and piano, with violin, banjo, saw, and more. With band leader Jimbo Mathus and original SNZ-ers joining leading musicians from New Orleans, the Zippers are sure to bring The Big Easy to life in the Last Frontier.
Squirrel Nut Zippers is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.

All levels of the theatres in the Center have wheelchair-and scooter-accessible locations where patrons can remain in their wheelchairs/scooters or transfer to portable theater seats. Select seats labeled "W" to purchase these seats.
Scooters cannot be placed in the aisles due to the Center's evacuation plan. Patrons are welcome to transfer to a Center transport wheelchair in the lobby to gain access to permanent seat locations. Devices will be stored in the lobbies.
Assistive Listening Devices - Sound from the stage is broadcast directly to you by our in-house listening system (Listen Technologies LR-52000-072). This system has a standard 3.5mm output jack, so you can use your own headset or one of our stereo headsets. A limited number of T-coil compatible loop lanyards are also available. Listening devices are kept at the House Manager's station in the lobby prior to and during performances. This service is free of charge, however a deposit or ID is required.
