Music Industry News - as it happens

PROJECT/OBJECT, the Mother of Frank Zappa reinvention bringing three generations of former Zappa musicians together, is scheduled to start an East Coast tour from Buffalo, New York, on December 27. "We've always had Zappa musicians sit in with us here and there," says PROJECT/OBJECT ringleader Andre Cholmondeley. "But we're now entering a period where we've reached enough of a hardcore Zappa fan base to allow us to mount this tour. Thanks to the internet and the support we've had on previous tours - particularly this past year - we know without question that the fans are out there."

The eight-city tour will mark the first time PROJECT/OBJECT has taken more than one Zappa alumnus on the road. For this trek, PROJECT/OBJECT will travel with four Zappa band alumni, as frequent special guest vocalist-guitarist Ike Willis (1978-88) will be joined in the band by vocalist-saxophonist Napoleon Murphy Brock (1974-84) and, sitting in at various intervals, original Mothers of Invention Don Preston (keyboards) and Bunk Gardner (saxophone), from the classic Mothers Of Invention lineup of 1966-72. Preston and Gardner will be opening all performances as THE DON AND BUNK SHOW, backed by Rick Bartow (bass) and Mumbo (drums) of PROJECT/OBJECT.

Other Zappa alumni will be making select appearances along the way, including a special two-night New Year's Eve (Dec. 30-31) at the Lion's Den in New York City, where PROJECT/OBJECT made history the previous New Year's as the only band in the world -- Zappa's included -- to play the maestro's greatest longform piece, the three-act "Joe's Garage," in its entiretly. That show was completely sold out.
