FRANK ZAPPA HOLOGRAM TO WORLD PREMIERE NEW MUSICWITH FORMER BANDMATES ON“THE BIZARRE WORLD OF FRANK ZAPPA”HOLOGRAM TOURNORTH AMERICAN PERFORMANCESSET TO LAUNCH FRIDAY, APRIL 19TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15U.S. DATES COME IN ADVANCE OFEUROPEAN SHOWS “We’re excited to world premiere a handful of Frank Zappa compositions; these mind-melting concerts we’re putting together celebrate the music, often surreal imagery and humour synonymous with Frank.”Ahmet ZappaLive music’s premier hologram production company Eyellusion has announced that a who’s who of ZAPPA fan favorite musicians will support “The Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa” hologram tour which will make its debut this April in the U.S. The nine U.S. shows kick off Friday, April 19, with seven European shows in May to follow.Additional dates will be announced in the coming months. Tickets for the U.S. shows go on sale Friday, February 15at 10:00 AM (ET) at all major ticketing outlets, with a special VIP pre-sale (details here) launching on Wednesday, February 13. In 1974, FRANK ZAPPA transformed his Los Angeles rehearsal space into a sound stage and cranked out some unbelievable performances seen and heard only by the camera operators in the room. The audio from these performances–locked away in the ZAPPA vaults for 44 years–will serve as the basis for what will be the world’s most ambitious hologram tour to date. The “can’t miss” concert spectacle is being produced in close cooperation with the ZAPPA FAMILY TRUST. The “Bizarre World of Frank Zappa” hologram tour band is comprised of former ZAPPA bandmates for this monumental series of shows. The touring unit boasts guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin, percussionist Ed Mann, and drummer and ZAPPA archivistJoe “Vaultmeister” Travers. “As a futurist, and hologram enthusiast, Frank fearlessly broke through boundary after boundary as an artist and in honouring his indomitable spirit, we’re about to do it again, 25 years after his passing,” said Ahmet Zappa, EVP of business development for Eyellusion and co-trustee of the ZAPPA FAMILY TRUST.“We’re excited to world premiere a handful of Frank Zappa compositions; these mind-melting concerts we’re putting together celebrate the music, often surreal imagery and humour synonymous with Frank. We will be pushing the limits of what anyone has seen holographically on stage before in a live venue. Circumstances, objects, places and subject matter from Frank’s songs and imagination will be brought to life for the first time on stage. We are anthropomorphizing Frank’s music utilizing various visual techniques, art styles, classic imagery from his album artwork and characters from his songs, culminating in one extremely bizarre, live music experience.”My father and I actively discussed 3D and ‘holography’ and it was a concept he actively engaged in. He actually devoted half a chapter of his The Real Frank Zappa Book to this subject. This is a love letter and a journey celebrating the genius artistry of Frank Zappa. On a personal note, I feel like I am finishing something my father started years ago. And let’s not forget, Frank himself will be rocking his fans, alongside his bandmates like nobody’s business.”

Bob Weir and Wolf Bros featuring Bob Weir, Don Was and Jay Lane performing songs of Grateful Dead and more will embark on a 19-stop tour this Spring.

Weir says, “Wolf Bros is something that really took its roots back in the spring of 2015 when Don Was came up to TRI and helped us piece together Dead & Company. For a while now I’ve been itchin’ to explore our songs in a trio setting. An upright bass, my acoustic or electric guitar and a drummer. We did some rehearsals this past spring and it was big fun—and that’s the whole idea. We were kickin’ around Dead songs as well as tunes from my back pages. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have a big adventure with this…”

Listen to “Driving Rain” HERE and “Mind Your Manners” HERE , purchase the songs digitally HERE and pre-order LIVING THE DREAM HERE .
 
SLASH describes “Mind Your Manners,” “I wrote this song on the spot to help the band get up and running once we got back in the studio this past January. It’s just a go-for-it type of song. Pretty straightforward rock and fun to play.” MYLES KENNEDY adds “’Mind Your Manners’ was something I didn’t hear until the guys had started jamming together. It’s a cool, up-tempo sort of thing and I knew immediately it would have its own place on this record. Lyrically, it’s about how when things are going well there always tends to be someone who tries to rain on your parade and knock you down. You have to keep people like that in check and not let them get to you.”

AS FIRST TRACK FROM HER NEW ALBUM
‘IMMORTAL’

ANN WILSON of HEART, one of rock’s most distinctive and powerful vocalists, has released I Am the Highway” as the first track from her new album that’s due out September 14 on BMG. Fittingly titled IMMORTAL, the album features 10 musically diverse tracks that pay tribute to some of ANN‘s influences and friends who’ve recently passed and whose music poignantly lives on.
“I Am The Highway”–originally an Audioslave song that was sung by the late Chris Cornell and written with his bandmates–was released today (July 6) across all digital platformsafter its premiere yesterday at RollingStone.com. The song is also available as an instant-grat track with album pre-orders, starting today; click here to access.
“The song is strong, confident, spiritual,” says the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee of “I Am The Highway.” “It’s about a person who refuses to be tied down to the mundane, who is constantly looking for freedom and independence on a more universal scale, not just ordinary everyday reality. It was the cry of a soul, and it’s a beautiful song. Chris and I were friends; we had a lot in common, we were both outsiders in a way. He left us with amazing music.”
For IMMORTAL, which marks her debut for BMGANN has teamed with original Heart producer Mike Flicker (Dreamboat Annie, Magazine, Little Queen, Dog and Butterfly and Bebe Le Strange, among others). “Mike was the first producer to believe in me,” ANN says. “He was my first teacher in the studio and knows how to provide that special support needed to bring out my soul in the recording process. It is exciting to work with him for the first time since 1980. I have traveled many, many miles since then but the old feeling is still there and fresh on Immortal. He has fearlessly helped me bring my ideas to life once again and it’s been a great collaboration.”
ANN chose the album title IMMORTAL after revealing some working titles early on in the project. “The original working titles evolved as the concept for the album evolved; a little bit at a time,” explains ANN. “As my understanding of what I had undertaken grew and clarified, I realized a larger truth; that the souls may have departed but the songs will forever be their resonances. These are the poets of our time and their expressions must be handed down. Poetry is lasting and elemental like carvings in rock.”
The finely etched tracks that comprise IMMORTAL cover a lot of musical ground, with many highlights including songs by Leonard Cohen (“A Thousand Kisses Deep”), Amy Winehouse (“Back to Black”), David Bowie (“I’m Afraid of Americans”), Lesley Gore (“You Don’t Own Me”) and Tom Petty (“Luna”). ANN says the criteria for choosing this collection of songs was easy. “First of all, I had to LOVE them! They had to be songs I could get inside of authentically as a singer. Lyrics are important to me but the most important thing is always the marriage of words and melody that makes the song magic!”
With sexism at the forefront of the national conversation, ANN says this did factor into the inclusion of “You Don’t Own Me” by Lesley Gore. “‘You Don’t Own Me’ was originally an early feminist anthem in the 1960’s and ’70’s. Since then the idea of self possession has grown to be more universal…This song is about refusing to be objectified and owned. By anyone.”
IMMORTAL includes some very special guests as well. “Warren Haynes plays on Tom Petty’s ‘Luna’ and ‘You Don’t Own Me,'” ANN reveals. “Ben Mink is featured on Leonard Cohen’s ‘A Thousand Kisses Deep’ and Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black.’ They are both musicians and great people whom I admire. It’s always a pleasure and an honor to work with them. Their souls shine through on these songs!”
The full IMMORTAL track listing is as follows:
“You Don’t Own Me” (Lesley Gore)
“I Am the Highway” (Chris Cornell, Audioslave)
“Luna” (Tom Petty)
“I’m Afraid of Americans” (David Bowie)
“Politician” (Cream) in honor of Jack Bruce
“A Thousand Kisses Deep” (Leonard Cohen)
“Life in the Fast Lane” (Joe Walsh, The Eagles) in honor of Glenn Frey
“Back to Black” (Amy Winehouse)
“A Different Corner” (George Michael)
“Baker Street” (Gerry Rafferty)
ANN‘s headlining solo dates start tonight (July 6) in Snoqualmie, WA and run through July 15 in Aspen, CO. Then, she joins the much-anticipated “Stars Align Tour” with Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers, which kicks off July 18 in West Valley City, Utah and stops in over 20 cities across the U.S. and Canada including Dallas, St. Louis, Chicago, Toronto and Nashville, before wrapping August 26 in TampaANN‘s set list this summer will include songs from IMMORTAL. The songs will also be featured in ANN‘s first-ever solo television special (details TBA), taped this past Aprilat the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, IL, to coincide with the album’s release.

ALLIGATOR RECORDS SET TO RELEASE ELVIN BISHOP’S BIG FUN TRIO SOMETHING SMELLS FUNKY ‘ROUND HERE NEXT FRIDAY, JULY 13

LISTEN BEFORE YOU BUY! Stop by our free stuff page to download the track Right Now Is The Hour and check out our jukebox to hear (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher and Another Mule.

 

“Elvin Bishop has always been big fun and is the ringmaster in his own blues circus. With Willy Jordan and Bob Welsh, Bishop whomps out tough, muscular and rollicking boogie-infused blues.” 
–No Depression

“Deceptively loose but always tight…the raspy chuckle in Bishop’s singing and the sharp sting of his guitar are forceful and fresh, enduring and fun.” 
–Fresh Air, NPR 

 

“Raw and simple and utterly endearing.” 
–Relix

 

Ever since Rock & Roll and Blues Hall Of Famer Elvin Bishop first hit the scene with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band back in 1965, he’s blazed his own musical trail. Touring the world for decades delivering his original, good-time countrified blues, Elvin has always inspired his fans with his rowdy guitar playing and witty, slice-of-life songs.

Late in 2015, Elvin formed The Big Fun Trio, with Bishop on guitar and vocals and his friends Bob Welsh on piano and guitar and Willy Jordan on cajón (a hand-played Peruvian drumbox) and vocals. The group’s instantly crowd-pleasing music and undeniable chemistry took the blues world by storm. Their debut album won both a Grammy nomination and a Blues Music Award nomination.

SOMETHING SMELLS FUNKY ‘ROUND HERE finds the group again fearlessly laying it all on the line. The album mixes rousing, new originals, reinventions of three Bishop classics and some unexpected, soul-shaking covers. Elvin wrote or co-wrote five songs (including two by the entire trio). The potent title track—a tongue-in-cheek State Of The Union address as only Elvin can deliver— kicks the album off with Bishop aiming his lyrical truths at the chaos in Washington, while his deep blues guitar playing drives the point home. Lookin’ Goodfinds Elvin autobiographically gazing in the rearview mirror with sharp, wry lyrics accompanied by Welsh’s perfect blues piano. Willy Jordan sings lead on four songs, including blistering reinventions of Jackie Wilson’s Higher And Higher and Ann Peebles’ I Can’t Stand The Rain. Bob Welsh, whose guitar or piano playing highlight every song, pounds the ivories on his own Bob’s Boogie.

Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio are clearly having a very good time. Having spent almost three years performing, these three tremendously talented musicians continue to inspire each other to new heights. As Living Bluessays, “Elvin’s Bishop’s Big Fun Trio has wonderful chemistry and are a joy to hear.”

Pre-order SOMETHING SMELLS FUNKY ‘ROUND HERE for the sale price of $14.98.
