Uncle Zeek Returns: 50th Anniversary Concert

Friday, April 12, 2019

Uncle Zeek started as a band called The Dark Side in 1967 and consisted of Ben Williams (keyboards), Jim Ziegler (drums), Jim Strudel (guitar), Tim Andersen (lead guitar), Doug Grote (bass), and Ron Ziegler (lead vocals). Uncle Zeek played mainly for school dances in the Aberdeen area. In 1969, Strudel and Jim Ziegler left the band, Jerry Buum joined on drums, and Glen Ryman played occasionally on flute. Also, the band name was changed to Uncle Zeek. The band broadened its repertoire, playing covers of music by Cream, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and many others. They traveled to schools, night clubs, and auditoriums through South Dakota, North Dakota, western Minnesota and Iowa. Dance halls included Waubay's Blue Dog Inn, Britton's Rainbow Ballroom, Lane's Rainbow Ballroom, and Tyndall's Groveland Park. Uncle Zeek also had a recurring engagement at the now long-defunct Michael's Bar in Aberdeen.
