Hard-Rock Alternative-Rock trio ZO2, featuring brothers Paulie Z on vocals + guitar and David Z on vocals + bass guitar and Joey Cassata on drums + vocals, formed in 2004 in Brooklyn, New York USA. Though a young band, they were not newcomers to the concert and recording scene having worked with Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts as well as members from Megadeth.
ZO2's debut independent album, "Tuesdays & Thursdays" was released in the spring of 2004 winning the band surprising attention. Within weeks of its release, ZO2 was on the main stage opening for Kiss and Poison on their entire 40 city national, VH1 sponsored "Rock The Nation" tour.
The band's highly anticipated second CD, "Ain't It Beautiful" on Riker Hill Records, followed in August 2007; the set included the politically explosive Active-Rock radio single "Isolate".
In June 2009 ZO2 released its third album, "Casino Logic", which features appearances by John Popper of Blues Traveler, ex-Journey Steve Augeri and Joe Lynn Turner. The CD includes the single "Painted Lady" co-written with Spin Doctors' Chris Barron.
