Zach Gill

Santa Barbara-based singer and songwriter Zach Gill, known for his world music tours as the lead vocalist of the rock band ALO, and a longtime member of Jack Johnson's band, made his first appearance at The Red Piano in Santa Barbara on Nov. 9 in support of Montessori Center School.

As well as performing locally, Gill also works regularly as a solo artist, having recently returned from a multi-media musical tour promoting his solo album Life in the Multiverse.

Zach employs traditional instruments like piano, banjo, ukulele and accordion in innovative ways and uses storytelling and audience participation to create a lively show, which he did for his Montessori Center School (MCS) benefit.

Montessori Center School is a nonprofit school that strives to provide Montessori education to a diverse school community.

The Fund for MCS supports programs for the school including music and arts education; teacher salaries; and classroom resources; as well as financial aid that helps bridge the gap between what a family can afford to pay and the full cost of an MCS education.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
