Dweezil Zappa needs a singer and multi-instrumentalist

Want to join Dweezil Zappa's band? Here's your change. He is looking for a singer and a multi-instrumentalist:

I hope all is well with you. Things are busy over here. We have some touring coming up and it looks like we might have some room for you on the stage! I'm writing to let you know that for the first time in a very long time we are opening up auditions for a male singer/multi-instrumentalist. What am I looking for? Thanks for asking, here's the criteria.

The male singer responsibilities will include covering Frank Zappa lead vocals as well as other lead vocalist parts from throughout my father's entire catalog. As an example, a vocal audition would include: Cosmik Debris, Montana, Dumb All Over, City Of Tiny Lites, Florentine Pogen and Village Of The Sun among other things.

If you're a multi-instrumentalist your tasks will include but not be limited to: The Black Page, Inca Roads, Zomby Woof, and Echidna's Arf amongst other things.

How do you audition? Please film yourself performing the songs mentioned and send me the link via email at media@dweezilzappa.com. Please make sure to state your name in the subject line, ex: JOHN SMITH - Vocal Audition.

Please also provide a short bio. No need for more than a paragraph or two. If I like what I'm seeing I will contact you about coming in to audition with the band. What's the time frame? Thanks for asking, the sooner the better!

Please note that I will only be able to consider applicants who currently reside in the United States. If you live in Los Angeles that is even better! Must have a valid U.S. Passport and be able to travel worldwide.

Let's see what amazing talents await!
