ZAC BROWN BAND

Saturday: Jason Mraz, Trombone Shorty and Amos Lee may be the guest stars on ZBB's "Uncaged," but there's no question who is Brown's chief influence here: James Taylor. There are sweet vocals and a gentle and gentlemanly Southern-ness, complete with harmonies that evoke the group Alabama. However, get Brown and the boys onstage and they're likely to transform into a human jukebox that bursts into hits by Bob Marley, Aerosmith, Nirvana, Van Morrison or John Mayer. To be sure, in concert ZBB will also serve up its own country hits, including the Jimmy Buffett-soaked "Toes," the Alan Jackson-assisted "As She's Walking Away" and the ever-tasty "Chicken Fried." (7 p.m. Sat. $31.50-$69.50. Target Center, 600 N. 1st Av., Mpls. 1-800-982-2787.)
