The GroundZero Acoustic Lounge (GZAL) is a unique live entertainment venue in the city Of Parksville, B.C. The GZAL has been created to provide local musicians, poets, comedians, etc... with a place to get together and make music, sometimes just for each other and more often in front of live audiences. Intimate concerts, Acoustic Jams, Open Mic nights for adults and Youth, karaoke nights and music lessons; all of this and more is happening at GZAL!
At GZAL, music comes first. We are determined to create an environment that feels welcoming to musicians of all genres and ability. In doing so, we feel we have created a space that will provide a unique entertainment venue for local live music lovers.
GZAL simply began as a rehearsal space for the local band, Groundswell, and quickly became a dream come true for friends and fellow bandmates Doug Pickard and Megan Keene.
Together with the help of other fellow band mates, friends, eager volunteers, and an amazing community of support, GZAL has become what is today, a happening place to come see and play live music.
Doug and Meg are excited for the future of GZAL and want nothing more than to continue to provide Oceanside with quality entertainment, a place to belong, and find joy, purpose and community, GZAL's gifts go way beyond just the gift of music, it has made a difference in people's lives.
Come by, say hello and get in on the amazing energy that is GZAL!!
Doug and Meg
