Saturday, July 17, 2014, the Spanner Jazz Punks performed at the Zappanale festival in Bad Doberan, Germany.
  • Adam Bickerton: bass
  • Paul Chousmer: keyboard
  • Bobby Demers: drums
  • Dan Spanner: lead vocals, alto sax, clarinets, guitars
  • Helen Tate: violin, vocals, trombone

The Spanner Jazz Punks performed right after The Muffin Men and before The Crimson ProjeKCt. That's probably not the best moment if you want to catch the crowd's attention but the Spanner Jazz Punks pulled it off. Led by Dan Spanner, the quintet played a very entertaining set. There were lots of musical surprises and the set included quite a number of Zappa compositions and references.
One of my favourite concerts of this year's Zappanale.
