Dweezil Zappa's "Zappa Plays Zappa" was the headliner for Zappanale.
I've seen the band over ten times already so I thought that I knew what to expect...

The band featured:
  • Dweezil Zappa: guitar, vocals
  • Scheila Gonzalez: saxophone, flute, keyboards & vocals
  • Chris Norton: keyboards, vocals
  • Kurt Morgan: bass, vocals
  • Ryan Brown: drums, vocals
plus new faces :
  • Cian Coey: vocals
  • David Luther - saxophone, guitar, keyboards, vocals
And Cian and David are not just the new pretty faces. David plays a mean bass or baritone saxophone and both Cian and David have a great voice !!

Add special guest Ike Willis for some vocal backings and a bit of lead on a couple of songs and you've got the Zappanale line-up.

The band played a three-hour set and it was superb: excellent musicians, great vocals, nice guitar work from Dweezil,... I loved it.
