Hey guys, I was there and loved every minute of it. Liked to hear the old songs from We're only in it for the Money. Liked Steve Vai Freakin' Out.Terry Bozzio was great. Also the young bandmembers were great. Napoleon is really a wonderful singer, he can do just anything. Not to forget Dweezil of course, absolutely great!

Great show!!!!!!! Thanks.

I'm gonna whip out some of the old records and play them again.

Hansie

That was a utterly impressive. Ranging from Freak out, Apostrophe and ... well never mind, all highlight were in it and it was played with devastiting precision, including the little screaming guitar notes on the background of Sofa #3. I'd expected it to end a more sentimental touch by playing Watermelon in easterhay. But hey, you can't have it all.
Great band, great setlist and another Zappa again learns that even if you're a very good guitarplayer, then there's always a Steve Vay.

Well, this was unbelievable good! Thank you Dweezil for putting this band together and bring your fathers music to the stage again. I enjoyed it very very much and hope to see you all soon. This is again a concert never to be forgotten. Thank you again and have lots of fun!

I can't w8 2 c some photographs....

Wow. Beyond expectation. Dweezil managed to get the band recipe right: great young and eager musicians with some ripe and juicy cherries on top. A spot-on simultane black page drum (and guitar) solo showed both Z-generations got along very well. Dweezil took a big risk with this endeavour as ’son of’ and deserves praise for both daring it and doing it so very, very well. Guests Vai & Bozzio in great shape but special credits go to Napoleon Murphy Brock who did most vocals brilliantly, added some hilarious dances and also was Dweezils mental support (this kind of tribute to your dad who died too young is also heartbreaking) Dweezil proved FZ’s compositions can (and will) get a new crowd of fans. Dad Z. must have been smiling on his inflatable cloud. He wants more. And we too!


P.S. Last not least: Dweezil can play his guitar too!

O MY GOD,
I was totally blown away yesterday, Thank you Dweezel for having the guts to start this project... the set, the band, the guests, everything was just right.
IT WAS AN HONOUR BEING A MEMBER OF THE CROWD.
Loved every minute of it.
PEOPLE OF EUROPE, GO SEE THE SHOW, IT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY.

I had a great time at Amsterdam. Excellent effort! I thought i started a little nervous, but the 2nd set was awesome! The Black Page, Punky's Whips and Echidna's Arf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I felt really ashamed when some asshole trew a CD at Dweezil, but He responded great! Frank would have left......
I originally had also tickets for Brussels but sent them back. I'm gonna buy them again!
Thank you Thank you Thank you!
