About John Zipperer
A former TV actor and stuntman, John Zipperer’s second chance came rolling down the highway of life, not on a carefully controlled movie or commercial set, but while changing a tire for a friend along the 285 freeway in Atlanta, GA. John was hit by a 10-wheel oil truck. After flying 40 feet and landing in the hospital, John was told by the critical care doctor, “You should be dead!” To John this seemed like a clear sign that life is, or could be, too short. He packed everything he owned into his 1976 Camaro and headed out to Los Angeles to pursue a life in music. It was ZipTime!
John’s clear voice, infectious melodies and heartfelt lyrics reach fans in places that they didn’t know existed. Soon everyone is singing along, swaying, chair dancing, head bobbing, and clapping. Fans remark repeatedly about the joy that is evident when the band is on stage – joy in their playing, joy for their audience, joy from their audience. John Zipperer delivers a unique and refreshing blend of rock, folk, country, and blues.
