Dweezil Zappa: 50 Years Of Frank

Witness Frank Zappa’s son Dweezil and his band bring his father’s musical legacy to life, on the same stage The Mothers of Invention themselves performed almost 50 years ago.

50 years on from the first Mothers of Invention album release, Freak Out, Dweezil and his band hand-pick their favourite tracks from his father’s extensive back catalogue, in this concert.

Exposed to the music industry from a young age, Dweezil Zappa developed a strong affinity for playing guitar and producing music. Having made his own music in the past, he assembled a virtuoso band of musicians in 2006, and devoted himself to performing the music of Frank Zappa extensively at venues across the world.

In 2009, they won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for their version of ‘Peaches en Regalia’ and remain the only official act to be playing Frank’s music since his death in 1993.
