Renowned as the 'Guitarist Extraordinaire' and showcasing intricate musical pieces in many interesting styles along with his own special humour and powerful singing, Ziggy Zapata has performed all over the world for over five decades and really knows how to entertain his audience with remarkable skill.
His speed and dexterity on the guitar always astounds and amazes lovers of this very challenging instrument and his creative personally written musical arrangements make Ziggy's performances most exciting and unique.
With a repertoire ranging from Classics to Country and Western, Rock and Roll, Ballads, Folk Songs, hits from Musicals and songs in many languages, Ziggy Zapata always keeps everybody jumping with unbounded energy, zany comedy and lots of audience participation.
These days, Ziggy performs his concert show as a fully self-contained package using electronic orchestral musical backing and his high quality sound system. In other words, there is literally no venue or function where his performance cannot be staged.
In 2007, Ziggy was honoured by his show business peers by being voted the winner of the prestigious Australian Entertainment MO Award in the category of One Man Performer Band. Ziggy was also nominated in the category of Instrumental or Vocal Instrumental Performer.
Continuing to enjoy the recognition of his peers in the music industry, in 2008 Ziggy was nominated in three MO Award categories - Instrumental Or Vocal Instrumental Performer, One Man Performer Band and Three Man Or More Performer Band. Ziggy was also nominated for an Australian Club Entertainment Award (ACE) in the category of Solo Guitar/Vocalist.
In 2009, Ziggy again won the MO Award for One Man Performer Band and was a finalist in two other categories - Instrumental Or Vocal Instrumental Performer and Three Man Or More Performer Band.
In 2010, Ziggy and his various shows were again nominated in no less than five MO Awards categories.
