Project/Object Announce Fall Surge for Zappa Music
Project/Object has reached a whole new generation of critical music fans, helping to promote, publicize and keep the spirit of Frank Zappa's music alive through their concerts. Best of all, the band has played with well over a dozen of Zappa's most important alumni in at least 28 states, as well as Canada and Germany. Project/Object continually seeks to celebrate this successful insurgency into the minds of so many brand new young fans, as well as seasoned Zappa listeners. Featuring: Napoleon Murphy Brock - sax, vocals * Andre' Cholmondeley - guitar, vocals * Dave Johnsen - bass, vocals * Eric Slick - drums, vocals, electronics * Eric Svalgard - keys, vocals and special guests!
Project/Object formed in the early '90s in New Jersey. After building a fan base in the tri-state area, Project/Object decided to take their show on the road, performing Zappa's music in more cities and larger venues, with a growing set list from every era of Zappa's 30-year recording career. The band strives to stay true to Frank's vision of constantly challenging the musicians and the audiences.
Since 1998, when the band first took their act on the road, the following Zappa/Mothers alumni have performed with the band: Napoleon Murphy Brock, Ike Willis, Jimmy Carl Black, Ray White, Don Preston, Bunk Gardner, Denny Walley, Mike Keneally, Arthur Barrow, Ed Mann, Roy Estrada, Billy Mundi and even Al Malkin. Other notable artists they've collaborated with include Phish's Jon Fishman, Capt. Beefheart/Jeff Buckley guitarist Gary Lucas, Chuck Garvey, Al Schnier and Jim Loughlin of moe, New York City big band leader and "Zappologist" Ed Palermo, and Dweezil Zappa drummer Jerry Cucurullo.
