Dweezil Zappa at the Concert Hall
Dweezil Zappa brings “50 Years of Frank” to the Concert Hall Aug. 10
Son of legendary Frank Zappa on his “Cease and Desist Tour 2016-2017”
DURANGO, Colo. – Perhaps the only person suited to truly carry on the tradition of Frank Zappa’s unique music is his son, Dweezil Zappa, and the son now continues the legacy of the father performing “50 Years of Frank” during “The Cease and Desist Tour,” coming to the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College on Aug. 10, 2017, 7:30 p.m.
An accomplished musician who picked up his first guitar at age 6, Dweezil Zappa keeps his father’s music alive while making it his own. Beyond being raised in a musical household, Zappa embraced the trailblazing guitar styles of Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads early on, which set the stage for his own revered guitar work. Dweezil Zappa made his first recording (under the tutelage of Van Halen) when he was 12 years old.
Always pressing the limits, Zappa draws his listeners into his intimate and multifarious musical world. He’s currently touring with what he says “…is the best version of the band. We are able to tackle any vocal scenario as well as the hardest instrumental passages.”
