Zappa Plays Zappa, the Grammy™ winning group that has made and recreated history performing the music of Frank Zappa, is set to embark on an epic musical trek across the US, Canada and Europe celebrating the classic  album Roxy & Elsewhere.  Dweezil Zappa, son of Frank Zappa, has led his group since 2006.  The more than 500 worldwide performances and over 275 compositions have spanned all his father’s works.  “I think my father’s music deserves the chance to be discovered by a contemporary audience.”

Beginning this September, Zappa Plays Zappa will hit the road premiering songs that have not been performed on previous tours and cutting its teeth on additional surprise material.  “The Roxy album has always been one of my favorites and I’m excited to play it top to bottom.  It has a great balance of musical styles and showcases some of the funkiest grooves and most devilishly frenetic instrumental passages my father ever composed.”
ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITY #1  –  Dweezil Guitar Class: $75
As a bonus to the tour, a 90 minute personalized guitar instruction session from Dweezil’s annual musical boot camp, Dweezilla, will be offered as a separate ticket in the afternoon before sound check in every city.  This event will take place at Chicago Music Exchange, 3316 N Lincoln Avenue in Chicago, and players of all skill levels are welcome to purchase tickets and attend.  “I really enjoy sharing musical ideas and improvisational strategies with people.  In these classes we discuss technique and application as our main topics.  People will also get a chance to have a close up look at the newly released Frank Zappa Roxy SG made by Gibson Guitars,” notes Zappa.  GET TICKET HERE
ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITY #2  –  VIP Sound Check Party & Show Ticket: $75
Another hardcore Zappa experience is available in the form of a VIP Sound Check Party ticket.  For the cost of $75, fans can watch Dweezil and the band perform a private sound check party at 5:30 and receive a limited edition poster from the show in addition to their regular show ticket.  GET TICKET HERE
