JAN 27, 2018: just a soft announce here....PROJECT/OBJECT will hit the road in April and May of this year.
Damn...sorry west coast peeps... try as we might we can only find a three week window, not enough time to get out that way. I promise we are trying to find a creative way to get out to see you again . It's way, way WAY overdue...! These dates will be in the Northeast/Rustbelt USA, out to the Great Lakes area.
SPECIAL GUESTS: on this one we bring back some old friends and touring partners. A special reunion for them also; as they toured together with Zappa in the mid 70s. None other than the legendary vocalist/saxophonist NAPOLEON MURPHY BROCK, and master slide guitarist DENNY WALLEY.
This unique combination of two of Zappa's most beloved Alumni, who just happen to be old friends, is not be missed. Both gentlemen are old touring pals and guests of Project/Object going back to at least 2000, but they have never toured together with P/O. Zappa History Here, Again!
SETLISTS:As usual, the setlist reflect the incredible albums these gentlemen did with Frank Zappa, together (Bongo Fury) and separately (Roxy & Elsewhere, One Size Fits All, Sheik Yerbouti, Joe's Garage)
...as well as other material from the vast Zappa catalog...tracks perhaps that Napoleon or Denny didn't play on initially, but performed live on tour with Zappa. Some will be favorite material they just wanted to do!
HISTORY: This unique and historic lineup will bring together musicians who participated in Zappa's most popular and productive periods 1972-1981. Both men recorded with last version of The Mothers on the 1975 Tour and were each in The Frank Zappa Band. Napoleon 1975-1976, Denny 1978.
As always we give THANKS and pay tribute to the enormous body of work left by Frank Zappa.
THANK YOU FRANK ZAPPA. 1940-1993
