Project/Object – The Music Of Frank Zappa feat. Napoleon Murphy Brock and Denny Walley

Project/Object is the longest continually touring alumni-based Zappa tribute band in the world. For over twenty five years they have toured and performed Zappa music with more of Frank’s bandmates than anyone other than Zappa himself. Project/Object tours of the USA, Canada & Europe have paved the way for a rich variety of excellent, contemporary Zappa tribute acts.

Project/Object has brought most of the currently touring Zappa alumni out of retirement and onto the road. Musicians from every era of Zappa’s history have performed with Project/Object. This tour reunites Napoleon Murphy Brock & Denny Walley, with setlist featuring material they performed together with Frank, plus Zappa classics from other albums they did with him.

Napoleon Murphy Brock, the frontman vocalist/saxophonist for Zappa’s early seventies bands, first appeared on the breakthrough album Apostrophe (‘), then the incredibly popular Roxy and Elsewhere and One Size Fits All. He appeared with Denny Walley on the iconic Bongo Fury, which documents Zappa’s 1975 collaborative tour with old friend Captain Beefheart. Brock went on to tour with fellow Zappa alum George Duke, in the hugely popular George Duke Band. Napoleon later provided harmony vocals for Sheik Yerbouti, one of Zappa’s biggest selling albums. The recent Roxy Performances seven-disc set features Napoleon prominently.

Denny Walley, a key member of Zappa’s mid 70s and early 80s tours, is the band member that goes back the furthest with Frank – they met during the 8th grade! Denny brought his incendiary slide guitar work to many Zappa tours and albums, splitting time as Captain Beefheart’s slide guitarist as well. Denny appears on arguably Beefheart’s greatest work: Bat Chain Puller, and on Zappa favorites like Joe’s Garage and You Are What You Is. Denny not only performed with Zappa on SNL a few times, but later became a set-builder for the show!

On this fall tour the band will visit cities that were missed on the very popular Spring 2018 tour. This time they will perform the entire classic Zappa/Mothers/Beefheart album BONGO FURY, which featured both Brock and Walley. A second set features classics, rarities and fan favorites.
