A Thousand Horses at Philadelphia Zoo
Tuesday A Thousand Horses stopped by the zoo, no not real horses, the country music rock band – A Thousand Horses.
According to Wikepedia – A Thousand Horses is an American country music group formed in 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee.
The band is composed of Michael Hobby (lead vocals), Bill Satcher (lead
guitar), Zach Brown (guitar and vocals), and Graham Deloach (bass and
vocals). Their first EP, A Thousand Horses, was released under Interscope Records in 2010. In 2014, the band signed with Republic Nashville of Big Machine Label Group and released its first single “Smoke“, which set a record for the highest debut by a new act when it opened at number 28 on the Country Aircheck radio chart
WXTU and The Philadelphia Zoo hosted their annual country western concert and a whole lotta fans came out to support the rising country stars including Junior and Yumee Yi
Before the concert, A Thousand Horses took a behind the scenes tour of the zoo. Michael Holby, Zach Brown, Graham Deloach and Bill Satcher
We saw a lot of animals including these cuddly, but loud screaming ones running through the Zoo360 Animal Exploration Trails.
Zoo360 currently consists of four trails: Gorilla Treeway, Treetop Trail, Great Ape Trail and Big Cat Crossing
(with more on the way!). The trails link existing animal habitats, so
animals with similar habitat requirements can use one another’s spaces
in a time-sharing system and take advantage of more room to roam.
Leo Sewell created this rhinoceros out of dinner plates, and it’s part of an art exhibit at the Philadelphia Zoo called “Second Nature.” an array of artist installations, some larger than life, each one telling stories of endangered animals through the use of recycled, reduced, reused, repurposed and renewed materials. It’s there til October 31, go check it out. I know I have to go back cause I didn’t see all the exhibits as those animals were distracting me.
