ugly radio rebellion

from http://www.uglyradiorebellion.com/ :

"Ugly Radio Rebellion was originally formed in July 2002, as a Detroit band known as Uncle Meat. Guitarist Scott Schroen felt inspired to start a project consisting of everyone and anyone capable of playing the music of Frank Zappa, a definite challenge. An ad was placed in the local paper simply stating, "musicians wanted to perform the music of Frank Zappa", and so ensued a few weekends of what was later dubbed, "Zappa Survivor". Groups of musicians would essentially drill selected pieces during rehearsal, and later everyone would vote on who they think should stay for the next round. After a few no-shows, a few driven to quit by musical intimidation and a collection of other circumstances, the few that were left from the 'survivor' sessions ultimately became the lineup for Uncle Meat. The project performed FZ around the greater Detroit area until the last show on Frank's birthday, December of 2003. After a few personnel adjustments, Uncle Meat was disbanded and Scott Schroen and Bassist Preston Parish reformed the project as... Ugly Radio Rebellion.

Currently the band consists of Scott Schroen on guitar and vocals, a Berklee College of Music alumni, Uncle Meat veteran, Detroit session artist and instructor. John Garland on bass, keys and vocals, currently enrolled in the WSU jazz studies program, local session artist and instructor. Layla Hall on drums, vocals, bells and percussion, extensive scholastic band experience, EMU alumni and Detroit Music Award nominee for Outstanding Acoustic Instrumentalist...

Ugly Radio Rebellion is one of the few bands in the U.S. that perform the music of Frank Zappa. 'We love this music and are extremely proud of what we are doing'... "

 

  • Scott Schroen: guitar and vocals
  • John Garland: bass, keys and vocals
  • Layla Hall: drums, vocals, bells and percussion

Early 2011, Scott cancelled all scheduled gigs. He is planning an open audition for URR on Sunday 2011/03/13 at Sam Ash Music - Atlanta, GA.

Once again it has been proven beyond all doubt that;
MUSIC IS THE BEST!!!!

The show with Ike Willis was simply AAAMAAAZING!!! Here's a few pictures...
http://www.geocities.com/themusicmill/3805.html

Thanks to all that came out!!! Let us know what you thought of the show...
I think the main highlights for me was getting my guitar autographed and trading solos with Ike on Zomby Woof... WOW... dreams come true...

Ike said he had a BLAST and a little sore the next day... he was very appreciative of the response and said it was "way better than I could've expected"...YEAH!!!

Next show is April 3 at Club Bart...
