The Zucchini Brothers

Review and photographs by Tim Mack

Once again during this February school break, the drawbridge at the Steamer No. 10 Theatre in Albany brought dozens of kids, parents and grandparents straight to Zucchiniland. The Friday morning show with the Zucchini BrothersJack, Sam and Steve – was exactly what audiences have come to expect from the trio that’s been making kids’ music since the ’90s – a comical mix of harmony, silliness, improv and health advice (“If you eat too much cheese, you’ll get wobbly knees!”).

It’s hard to disappoint when you’ve got songs like “Green Teeth” and “You Are What You Eat,” and those classics were exactly what the crowd was there to hear. It was an enthusiastic group of pre-school and elementary-age fans eager to play along with the Brothers, wherever the music took them. The intermission was as exciting as the first set for a lot of the kids, who got to climb on stage and meet the stars (Sam Zucchini is a particular favorite; apparently he’s the Ricky Nelson of the group).

Steve Zucchini

Steve Zucchini

NAME: Steve Zucchini
BAND AFFILIATION: The Zucchini Brothers
INSTRUMENT: Keyboards/Vocals

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … “The Best of Tommy Dorsey”

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Crosby, Stills & Nash/The Band in 1985: CSN were pretty good. David Crosby was in a catatonic state and not saying or moving much on stage. Shortly thereafter, he went to jail. I kick myself because the Band warmed up, and I wished I had appreciated them more than I did at the time. (I only knew a few of their tunes, “Up On Cripple Creek,” etc.) Richard Manuel was still alive and singing with them.

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … Piano. My first keyboard was a Univox with four sounds and an octave of real bass notes, a la Ray Manzarek (the Doors). It was pretty cheesy. Friends later nicknamed it the “organ grinder.”
