Zoo Station – a Bay area U2 tribute band – rolled through San Francisco on a flatbed to electrify the crowd at the tail end of the 161st annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade – and they were running on all cylinders.
Dubbed “The Complete U2 Experience” vocalist Bonalmost (Joshua Fryvecind) has a remarkable resemblance to U2 lead singer Bono and he completely gets into character. It was a “Beautiful Day” as the rain held off long enough for the parade to make its way down Market Street.
Zoo Station, which formed a decade ago through a Craigslist post, delivers U2 theater at its best. Watch as Bonalmost interacts with the audience injecting his Irish rock-star magic into the performance.
