Zion I & The Grouch Hit the Road for "Healing of the Nation" Tour


February 8, 2011 (SAN FRANCISCO, CA) To kick off the release of their much anticipated album Heroes in the Healing of the Nation, West Coast hip-hop crew Zion I & The Grouch are excited to announce a nationwide tour, starting March 19 at the historic Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco.  The trio, long since known for tackling weighty topics, are donating 100% of all ticketing fees sold through to local community organizations.  The group has partnered up with different organizations in every city, such as Totem Star, Project Commotion, Self Enhancement Center, and Urban Peak. 

“Touching people with our music is the main thing we can do," explains The Grouch of the motive behind the donations, "but contributing in a monetary way is taking things to the next level.”

"This album is intended to stimulate positive change in people's lives," says Zumbi.  "Whether that be a smile during hard times, or a shift in perspective, the idea is that we help to facilitate a soulful healing session.  This record is like a massage for the mind, body, and spirit."

The Healing of the Nation Tour also features Blu, and The Jacka on select dates, with The Shotgun Wedding Quintet (Jazz Mafia) opening each show.  Heroes in the Healing of the Nation features Freeway, Fashawn, Casual, Mystic, Eric Rachmany, Jacob Hemphill of Soja, Eligh, Marty James, Los Rakas, Codany Holiday, and the R.O.D Project and is due out March 22, 2011.
