DWEEZIL ZAPPA CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF FRANK ZAPPA
Guitarists owe Dweezil Zappa a huge debt of gratitude. Not only is he a great player in his own right, but he’s also leading the charge in keeping the music of his father – the one and only Frank Zappa – alive for new generations.
David Roy Williams, in collaboration with Principal Entertainment, will present Dweezil Zappa and The Others Of Intention – celebrating 50 years of Zappa with a series of concerts and exclusive guitar masterclasses in Australia and New Zealand come early 2018.
In a pun-filled press release that’s too good to not share, the promoters say, “FreakOut! to some of the most inventive and wildly original music ever committed to tape! Discover Who
AreTheBrainPolice? as Dweezil conducts immaculate explorations and excavations of Frank’s 50-year-old debut album. Take a drive with the ‘Muffin Man’ along the ‘Inca Roads’ in the ‘Orange County Lumber Truck’ as Dweezil digs in for a suite mined from one of Frank Zappa’s most acclaimed albums, Joe’sGarage.
“Dweezil will be whippin’ up a ‘G-Spot Tornado’ as he explores everything from the deepest album cuts to the cult favourites that have made Frank Zappa and his music such an indelible influence on our musical culture.
“Before you ask, ‘Is That All There Is?’, Dweezil will be holding exclusive and strictly limited guitar masterclasses and Q&A sessions before each show, exploring exciting new approaches to that guitar that he has employed to play his dad’s most sophisticated and challenging melodies. These masterclasses provide theories that destroy the boundaries that confine musical creativity.
“So don’t be a ‘Zomby Woof’, move like the ‘Teenage Wind’ and grab a ticket before they’re all gone, as The Son Of Shut Up‘n Play Yer Guitar shows you how it’s done.”
