The Furious Bongos play Zappa at The Acoustic
The Furious Bongos play Zappa at The Acoustic
Wednesday April 29th
7pm Doors // 8pm Show // $15 ticket

Were only in it for the money.

HAHAHAHA

Actually, were just a bunch of professional musicians with pretty diverse backgrounds who decided to take on a pretty big challenge and have some fun in the process.

Now, you might ask, Oh yeah? Professional musicians, eh? What makes you think you can play Franks music as well as [insert Zappa family member here]?

Wellyou might not have heard of us individually, but you have heard of the people weve spent our careers working with (and we dont mean I played a 10am slot at a festival once that was headlined by Mr. Big Name Artist Guy):

Yo Yo Ma, Mick Fleetwood, BB King, REM, Vinnie Colaiuta, Oasis, LA Philharmonic, Madison Symphony, Arthur Barrow, Munich Philharmonic, Camille Zamora, India Arie, Popa Chubby, Limelight: A Tribute To Rush, Pinetop Perkins, Chicago Lyric Opera, Arrested Development, Madison Opera, blah blah blah....you get the idea.

When it came to the music, Frank was constantly changing things, and he allowed his band members to bring their unique voices to the table. He also understood that his live performances were entertainment - it's supposed to be a rock show, not a piano recital.

With that in mind, we dont think playing Song X from Album Y note-for-note while staring at our shoes is the proper way to go about this.

The result of that approach (combined with a lot of homework and being lucky enough to have a killer complement of musicians) is a show that pays respect to Zappas legacy, but is still new and different and dangerous and FUN, with lots of eyebrows.

Kinda like Frank
