dweezil zappa

Frank Zappa's son, Dweezil, and his band are to play five dates in the UK in October. The set will be made up of their favourite tracks from Zappa senior's extensive back catalogue and the tour happens fifty years after the first Mothers Of Invention album, 'Freak Out', was released.

Exposed to the music industry from an early age, Dweezil Zappa developed a strong affinity for playing the guitar abd producing music. Able to learn from world-class guitarists such as Steve Vai and Eddie Van Halen, Dweezil quickly developed into a musical star in his own right, releasing his first single (produced by Eddie Van Halen, at the age of twelve.

Since 2006, Dweezil put his own original music on hold, assembling a virtuoso band of musicians, and devoted himself to performing the music of Frank Zappa extensively at venues across the world.

In 2009 they were awarded a Grammy for best rock instrumental performance for their version of 'Peaches en Regalia' and were nominated again in the same category for their performance of 'The Deathless Horsie'.

Now you can see Dweezil and his band bringing his father's musical legacy to life on stage, fifty years since The Mothers Of Invention first toured the UK.
