Jerry Zybach

Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

Jerry Zybach is known throughout the Pacific Northwest and Northern California for his smokin’ electric slide guitarwork, his masterful finger-picking Delta blues, and his tasteful slide and solo work on acoustic and homemade cigar box guitars. His music is always foot-stompin’, danceable, and authentic — combining traditional blues with a contemporary energy.

It was the 70s when Robert Cray and Curtis Salgado emerged as kings of the newly revitalized blues scene in Eugene. Animal House brought John Belushi to the area — a visit that later inspired the Blues Brothers. And Jerry Zybach, already heavily into playing music since his teens, heard his first blues on a Portland radio station. He was hooked. Over the years, he and his guitar followed it to Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and beyond, but always came back to play in the Eugene area where he was born and raised.
