The Furious Bongos: Halloween tour-ette dates

The Furious Bongos are a bunch of pro's who love the music of Frank Zappa, so every now and then they find the time to get on stage and have fun with his music:

As for Frank's music, he was constantly changing things, both for his own creative choices and to adapt to the different musicians he had over the years. He also understood that his live performances were entertainment: it's supposed to be a rock show, not a piano recital.

With all that in mind, we don’t think playing Song X from Album Y note-for-note while staring at our shoes is the proper way to go about this.

The result of that approach (combined with a lot of homework) is a show that pays respect to Zappa’s legacy, but is also new and different and dangerous and FUN, with lots of eyebrows.

Kinda like Frank.

Their Halloween tour-ette mini tour consists of three shows:

  • 10/31 Cleveland, OH @ Beachland Ballroom
  • 11/02 Madison, WI @ High Noon Saloon
  • Chicago, IL @ Reggies
