Basin Bands History: The Zachary Family



The Zachary family has been making great gospel music in the Basin for decades.  The entire family are gifted musicians and its been a privledge to share the stage with them.  Back in the 90's we were a band called Z4U - James Zachary was a pro football player and sang beautiful vocals on his self penned 'Clouds of Glory", Eddie was on guitar and is remembered for his song "Grandmas Hands', Sammy sang country and played bass, Carlos was the band leader and such a talent, He played everything and his vocals give us chills.  His wrote a great song called 'Mamma's Prayer' that I'll never forget.  Before Z4U they had played for years around the West Texas.  Dorthy their mother is a sweet spirit that raised her boys to be great men. Their father was well liked, a musician and known as the groundskeeper at Midland Memorial Stadium for years. The other brothers deserve mention too.  This is a great family and a great bunch of musicians from "When our town was young."
