FRANK ZAPPA, one of the twentieth century’s most important composers, continues to have an effect on modern music. His list of ex-band members is a who’s who of incredible musicians. For twenty years PROJECT/OBJECT has been on a mission to bring Zappa’s multi-dimensional music and onstage madness to the masses, by faithfully recreating the live Zappa experience with his alumni.

Now, in their third decade of performing the Music Of Frank Zappa, Project/Object sets out on tour with their most incredible lineup yet. Over the years they have led the way in taking Zappa’s band mates on tour, featuring musicians from almost every single Mothers and Zappa album. The band is proud to have been an integral part of the explosive growth in popularity of Zappa music in recent years.

On this tour Project/Object is joined by longtime collaborators Ike Willis and Ray White, as well as Ed Mann, Denny Walley and for the first time Tom Fowler. They all bring their virtuosic creativity and deep history to the stage. Between them they have played on Zappa’s most popular and iconic releases, including Tinseltown Rebellion, Bongo Fury, Sheik Yerbouti, Apostrophe, Joe’s Garage, Roxy And Elsewhere, One Size Fits All, and Baby Snakes. Denny Walley is also well known for his recent tours with his fellow CAPTAIN BEEFHEART alumni in THE MAGIC BAND.

With the alumni on board, Project/Object brings an authenticity that few tribute acts can claim, and they will continue to bring Zappa music and Zappa band members directly to the fans. The band will be performing Zappa classics from all eras as well as the pieces most associated with each of the musicians.
