Dweezil Zappa and his band played a 2 1/2 hour show full of very intricate music with very challenging vocal harmonies.  The 50 year old album “Freak Out!” was way ahead of its time and still is to this day.   Recreating the guitar parts of Frank Zappa, along with all the crazy music on the album was quite the undertaking.   The seven member band includes Ryan Brown on drums, Kurt Morgan on bass,  Chris Norton on keyboards, Scheila Gonzalez on flute, sax, keyboards and newcomers David Luther on sax and guitar and vocalist Cian Coey.  The show also had several guitar guests in Oz Noy and James Santiago.

The Dead Daisiesplayed their first West Coast headline show with a full live set to a sold out crowd at the legendary Los Angeles venue Whisky a Go Go in support of their fantastic new studio album, Make Some Noise.TDD-whisky-posterAThe show began at 8:00 with Steve Rodgers (son of Paul Rodgers) playing a solid set where Rodgers both looked and sounded very much like his dad. His performance was a great way to kick off the show as the crowd trickled in.

With an uncharacteristically early start time of 9:00PM for a headliner at a Whisky concert, The Dead Daisies put on a rocking show packed with nearly a dozen original tunes, along with a bunch great covers (songs from Free, Cactus, The Who, CCR, The Beatles and they ended the show with a great version of “Hush“). There were so many…
