Hi :)

I feel grateful because I had the chance to hear Frank's music live in Athens for the first time. The show was amazing! I enjoyed every second.
Dweezil, Steve, Napoleon and all the members of the group, thank you for this unforgetable-full of emotions evening.

Dweezil & co did a brilliant job and now I feel relieved and - besides -pleased not to miss the zpz spectacle ! Well done guys.
Frank should be proud of you!
I was at the Hammersmith Odeon show in 1982 and I remember a young – long haired Dweezil joining on stage his father for the encore. Never thought I will see him again 24 years later fronting himself a band and performing Frank’s music. The set list was well balanced and the band appropriately rehearsed.
