Zappa Plays Zappa at Harrah's Sunday.


WHO ARE THEY: Zappa Plays Zappa is a project that was put together by the late Frank Zappa’s son Dweezil Zappa. For more than a year, Dweezil Zappa locked himself away in a studio, meticulously studying every nuance of his father’s music from its complex arrangements to its subtle tonalities in an attempt to fully understand the fundamentals of the music. When assembling the touring band, Zappa went out looking for a group of younger musicians who could help translate this music to the next generation of fans. Dweezil Zappa has released numerous albums, beginning in 1986 with “Havin’ a Bad Day” and continuing on through 2006’s “Go With What You Know” and the recent “F.O.H.3- Out of Obscurity.”

WHAT TO EXPECT: In the spring of 2006 Dweezil Zappa took to the road performing his father Frank Zappa’s legendary music. For die-hard fans, this was the type of show that they’d only dreamed about. Over the years Dweezil Zappa has put in an incredible amount of time and effort to ensure that this project is a top-notch representation of his father’s work, leaving no stone unturned in his pursuit of musical perfection. On the current tour, Zappa Plays Zappa has paid tribute to the 40th anniversary of the classic album “One Size Fits All.” Nine years after he first began the project, Zappa continues to perform for ecstatic, sold-out crowds.

WHAT’S NEW: The current tour celebrates the 40th anniversary of Frank Zappa’s album “One Size Fits All.”

SHOW INFO: Tickets are $25, $35 and $45.
