Live Performance

'Petulant Frenzy'


I have been resident drummer with this exuberant 10-piece Zappa tribute band since 2013. Some of the most incredibly challenging music I have played, but also some of the most fun!

" can't play at playing Zappa. You either nail it or you have a front-page train-wreck. Petulant Frenzy not only nails it, the band applies putty to make the nails invisible, and then daubs on a thick coat of fun  ★★★★"
