Zappa plays Zappa- Amager Bio, Copenhagen Oct 26th, 2015
This was the 5th time ZPZ has played Copenhagen and the 4th time I have seen them. It has always been an amazing concert experience, about as close to seeing the real Frank Zappa band itself. These young players are so great and Dweezil has developed into a stunning guitar player.
Magnus and his friend Jesper came over to my place and we had one quick beer before heading over to the venue. We had one more outside but it was getting close to 20 so we headed in. I did not have an advance ticket but a guy sold me one for 300. IT would have been 350 at the door…
Just as we could get into the concert hall (it was very packed and nearly sold out), they started the Star Wars intro and then into Inca Roads! The keyboard player played all the xylophone parts from Ruth Underwood on his Kronos keyboard. Sheila, the female vocalist, sax, flute and keyboard player also had a Korg Kronos. Dweezil was very warmed up and played an amazing solo during Po Jama People and the crowd was having fun on this one as well. I always loved Florentine Pogen and some of the solos Frank would do on this one as well. Dwezzil did not disappoint! People enjoyed San Ber’dino a lot and Dweezil had a bit of audience participation with Sofa No2.. That was the complete One Size fits all record in the first hour.
Amazing 2 hr and 30min show..
