Dweezil Zappa is hosting a “musical bootcamp” in late June. DWEEZILLA will take place at the Full Moon Resort in the Catskills region of New York from June 21-25. Zappa has enlisted his core band to serve as instructors: Joe Travers, Pete Griffin, Scheila Gonzales, Jamie Klime and Billy Hulting. The five-day experience will include “Private performances, intimate jam sessions, campfires, film screenings, and of course, the study of Frank Zappa’s brilliant approach to music, his career, and legacy….It is not a fantasy camp where students get to ‘Jam’ on Frank Zappa tunes for hours on end. Nor is it a Zappa specific curriculum. Many styles of music will be offered for discussion and study.” Additional information can be found at the DWEEZILLA page on Dweezil Zappa’s site.
