Gigs Where the then Kings Ransom had performed with alternate Drummer Zac Bickler, These shows were sometimes billed as The Unannounced, this was due to the impromptu nature of these unannounced performances. Sadly Zac Bickler died unexpectedly in July of 2013…
occasional performances are still done in his honor, as Zac Bickler was a not only a dear friend but also an original founding member of Reincarnated.
