Dutch band Studio Tan performs the music of Frank Zappa next to original compositions.
The band started out in the early 1990s and performed at the Zappanale festival in 1993 and 1995.

During the early years, Studio Tan released a couple of cassette tapes: "Studio Tan Rides Again", and "Shit Happens".

More recently, at the Zappadag that was held in Tilburg a couple of months ago, I received a copy of "Gaan We Opnemen?" from John Sijnke. It's a collection of demos and rehearsals by Studio Tan.

The Zappadag was a fine event. Three bands performed with Studio Tan closing the day with a 2-hour plus set.
