the creamcheese incident
October 2002, Breakfastime took part in the first Zappa Hoot Night in Austin, Texas. It's an event where bands play the music of Frank Zappa for a good cause: benefitting the American Cancer Society. His band was called The Creamcheese Incident. They play a couple of times a year.
I was looking for
Zoogz Rift today and found your website-great! I'm a big FZ fan as well,
so it's a been real treat! I used to go see Zoogz a lot back when I lived
in LA, and even played in a band w/some of his guys ( "Mako" Sharkey
and Ed O'brien) for a while.
I have since moved
home to Texas and continue to pursue various musical wierdness, playing guitar
for Texacala Jones, T. Tex Edwards, Walter Daniels, and others as well as
pursuing (sort of) a solo "career" as BREAKFASTIME -the "world's
favorite unknown guitarist". One of my musical ventures is my 'lil
'ol FZ tribute band THE CREAMCHEESE INCIDENT which plays a couple of times a
year. (Mother's Day, Halloween, etc.). Although I've yet to get anything on my
website ( www.breakfastime.com ) about TCI
just yet, I promise I'm "working on it"! Creamchz Incident
formed last year for a benefit show that looks like it will be a regular thing
now. Called "Frank Zappa Hoot Night", this benefit show features
Austin-area musicians (including Terry Bozzio!) doing all Zappa music and
the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. You can find out more
about this event at www.zappahootnight.com
or by e-mailing event organizer Mo Pair at email@example.com
I'm hoping you can
add this stuff to your list of artists that cover Zappa's music, if you will.
Another item of
interest is a compilation CD being put together of all FZ music-done in surf
style! If you would be so kind as to pass along this info to other
like-minded musicians, I'm sure it would make for an even more exciting album!
