Mark Volman announced on Saturday night 7/9/11 from the stage during the Happy Together Tour in Wallingford, Ct. that a deal had been signed for Flo & Eddie to recreate their role from the Zappa band days. They will be touring with Dweezil Zappa‘s Zappa Plays Zappa, who faithfully recreate the music of Dweezil’s father Frank Zappa. Flo & Eddie then launched into Peaches en Regalia for a few minutes which was awesome.
We love Zappa Plays Zappa. I have seen them twice with my son who I am proud to say is a more intense Zappa fan than I am.
I find this collaboration to be a very exciting proposition and look forward to learning more about concert dates in my corridor of the US. I might finally get to see 200 Motels performed live in concert, Hey Now!
I never got to see Frank Zappa live nor did I ever get to see the Phlorescent Leech & Eddie as part of that ensemble. Flo & Eddie’s vocals meshed so well with the intelligent humor and polyphonic music Frank Zappa played live.
