Description: IKE WILLIS & RAY WHITE! These amazing & unique voices were clearly favorites of Frank's, as he recorded & toured with one or both of them from 1976 till the last Zappa tour in 1988. Together - they created some of the most memorable performances of Zappa's music, & we will bring them to you on this tour, performing songs they are each known for, as well as songs from classic Zappa albums they recorded together.
One of Frank's greatest skills was -- his incredible sixth sense in identifying something magical in each of the musicians he hired. Recognizing this - Project/Object continues it's singular mission to present the music as it was recorded -but also to respect and develop the creative "LIVE" aspect that Zappa always pushed his band towards. With the support of the FANS, we choose to do this with the "Alumni"....the people who were there with Frank as the music was created, recorded and performed.
