The band was originally formed in New Port Richey, Florida back in 1993 by vocalist, Jimmy Starr, and bassist, Miki Tabakovic. By the end of 1994, the band members decided to go their separate ways, resulting in ZigZag America’s disbanding.
The original members of ZigZag America reunited in 2010 for a second go-around. Within a year though, Starr and Tabakovic would start having issues with their guitarist and drummer, leading to their departure from the band. Starr and Tabakovic quickly started searching for a new guitarist and drummer for the band. Tabakovic decided to switch from bass to guitar and brought on Jake Schaffer as the bands new bass player in February 2011. The remainder of 2011 would see ZigZag America go through multiple drummers before eventually bringing Beau Garrow on board in the winter of 2011.
With A new ZigZag America lineup in place in 2012, the band started performing all around the Tampa Bay area, quickly building up a solid fan base for themselves. It was also during this time when the band entered the studio to start recording songs for their up-and coming debut album titled ".COM". While .COM was in post-production in May of 2013, Garrow parted ways with the band. Soon after Garrow’s departure, the band would bring on Bobby Walker to replace him on drums. Several months later on August 8th, 2013, the band released .COM.
In November of 2013, the band parted ways with Walker, replacing him with Chad Henderson on drums.
