The Zappa Band’s First-Ever Headlining Tour

Perhaps you were fortunate enough last year to catch the King Crimson tour for the shows that featured The Zappa Band opening. Now The Zappa Band are thrilled to announce a tour in June, their first time out as headliners. 

We are fortunate that there are several outstanding bands across the country featuring the music of Frank Zappa, and The Zappa Band certainly qualify in terms of pedigree and musical ability.

Four of the members of the band are FZ alumni: Ray White, lead vocals, guitar (1976-1984), Robert Martin, keyboards, sax, vocals (1981-1988), Scott Thunes, bassist (1981-1988), and Mike Keneally, guitar, keyboards, vocals (1987-1988). Also in the band are two members who played in ZPZ: Jamie Kime, guitar, and ZAPPA archivist Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers, drums, vocals. White, Keneally, Thunes, and White all played in the studio and on the road with Zappa.
