With fall we're back into skating season - hockey and figure skating lessons, etc!
Written by Martin Zellar who is the former frontman for the Gear Daddies, a Minnesota-based country-rock band. This song, is a hidden track at the end of Billy's Live Bait which was the second album recorded by the Gear Daddies. It was their first release for a major labe and is the only one to become significantly popular outside the Upper Midwest region of the United States.
A Zamboni is an ice-resurfacing machine often seen at skating rinks and sports arenas. Named for its inventor Frank Zamboni, the vehicle is most strongly associated with the sport of ice hockey, and has long been a popular, even iconic, presence between periods at hockey games. The song is about a kid who dreams of driving one for a living. Not surprisingly, the song, like the Zamboni itself, has also become a fixture at ice arenas across North America.
