Zappa Plays Zappa is an American tribute act led by Dweezil Zappa, the eldest son of the late American composer and musician Frank Zappa, devoted to performing the music of Frank Zappa.
The shows presents a collection of Frank Zappa's rock-oriented compositions from 1960s to 1980s. Apart from Dweezil Zappa on lead guitar, the band has had a mix of guest musicians who previously played with Frank Zappa; among those, Napoleon Murphy Brock (sax, flute and vocals) was an integral part of the band, drummer (and singer) Terry Bozzio and electric guitarist Steve Vai. At several shows Frank Zappa himself performed songs posthumously via synchronized audio/video technology, notedly portions of "Chunga's Revenge", "Dumb All Over", "Cosmik Debris," and "Muffin Man."
