In the early seventies, Nolan Porter recorded two albums with three of the original mothers, shortly after Frank Zappa had broken up the band.
Nolan would also be part of the early Little Feat recording sessions when Lowell George and Roy Estrada formed that group in late 1969.
Two decades after playing with the alumni of Zappa's Mothers Of Invention, Nolan found himself together with Patrice 'Candy' Zappa.
December 1, 2012, The Boogiemen performed a prostate cancer fundraiser concert at 'Irene's' in Ottowa, Canada.
