GrandMothers of Invention
“Rare are the musicians who can even play Zappa’s music, let alone make it live and breathe. So Thank the Lord for the GrandMothers of Invention.”…”With three different Zappa eras represented, the GrandeMothers have a wide palette of material to choose from.”…”They served up vintage psychedelia - rock songs with surreal lyrics, jazz-like harmonies and melodic complexity, with flashes of wacky satire.”…”Amazing virtuoso musicians, fun and funny.”
