Zappa Plays Zappa Once Again (With Ray White)

Dweezil Zappa has assembled the Zappa Plays Zappa ensemble once again for an extended summer/fall tour that will include 30 North American dates and 17 European shows. In addition to the musicians who performed with the group last year, Zappa also has tapped former Frank Zappa bandmate Ray White to contribute vocals. Once again Dweezil’s intent is to expose the world to the musical legacy of his father, and relative to Whites participation, Dweezil has stated, [I]t is important to keep in mind that Frank’s music is the only reason this tour exists. We all love it and want to see and hear more of it. It is the true focus and star of the show. It’s a nice bonus for the fans to have the chance to see musicians who’ve had previous experience in Frank’s band playing his music once again. By no means should their presence on stage be over-emphasized.’ A live performance DVD from the 2006 tour will be available at the coming performancess which will begin on July 18 in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the Centennial Concert Hall
