Dweezil Zappa to Offer Guitar Clinics During Roxy & Elsewhere 40th Anniversary Tour

Earlier this year we reported that Deezil Zappa and his band Zappa Plays Zappa would be embarking on tour in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Frank Zappa’s Roxy & Elsewhere live album. The band will hit the road next month for an extensive run before wrapping it all up with a three-night run at The Roxy in Los Angeles on the 40th anniversary of Frank’s legendary stint at the venue. Zappa Plays Zappa will be performing Roxy & Elsewhere in its entirety at every show.

While a Roxy & Elsewhere tour is certainly exciting for Zappa fans everywhere, this tour will also come with another twist. As a bonus, Dweezil Zappa will be holding 90-minute guitar masterclasses in the afternoon before sound check in every city that the tour makes a stop. The events will be ticketed separately, and players of all skill levels are invited to attend.

No Colorado. Might have to go to the Roxy. The band that the dweez has assembled will knock your socks off. By the time the Roxy rolls around, they will be the tightest band around. A fitting tribute to a legendary run. Crank some frank!!
