DWEEZIL ZAPPA CEL­E­BRATES 50 YEARS OF FRANK ZAPPA

Australian Guitar - - Australian Guitar Digital -

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.”
