Zebrahead is a Orange County based rock band consisting of vocalist Ali Tabatabaee, Greg Bergdorf (guitar), Matty Lewis (vocals/guitar), Ben Osmundson (bass) and Ed Udhus (drums).

After a dozen years, half a dozen albums, scores of countries, countless miles, and a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance, Zebrahead has been not only been able to maintain their core fan base that grew up with them, but they continue to break new ground and appeal to newer generations of audiences.
