Zarbo is a Canadian pop-rock band trio that was formed in the early 1980s. It consists of lead vocalist Alexander Zarbo, guitarist/vocalist, Derek Sharp, and drummer/vocalist, Greg Anzlec. The band released its first album, A-Z Collection, in 1985. Zarbo was disbanded in the late 1980s.
Zarbo was formed when the lead vocalist, Alex Zarbo and Derek Sharp befriended each other after performing, separately, at a concert venue. Alex Zarbo performed with his former band, Penguin, and Derek Sharp was the guitarist for the band, Lerxt. Later, Greg Anzlec, a friend of Sharp’s, became a part of the band.
After the band was formed, the trio used to practice in the basement at Sharp’s mother’s house. Eventually, the band began performing at music venues, including the El Mocambo, Branko’s, Cameo Lounge (Hotel Isabella), Larry’s Hideaway, Horseshoe Tavern. In 1985, Zarbo released its first eight-song L.P, A-Z Collection. A year later, their first single, Get Up and Dance.
The band started working on recording new material for their second release, which included the bed tracks of Fool Man. But the band disbanded in the late 1980s before it was released.
