PYGMY TWYLYTE PERFORM THE SONGS OF FRANK ZAPPA + THE SENSATIONAL ALEX HARVEY EXPERIENCE

So prolific was Frank Zappa’s output, that it is nearly impossible to present a representative sample of his work in just one concert. Over the course of his life, and since his death in 1993, over one hundred official Zappa albums have been released, alongside countless bootlegs. These range from 60’s psychedelia with the Mothers of Invention, Jazz and Rock material tinged with Zappa’s own inimitable spin, through to orchestral compositions performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, among others.

Navigating the vast Zappa oeuvre then is no mean feat, but Scotland’s Pygmy Twylyte have embraced the challenge with gusto. Since their inception in 2018, the band have selected a core body of classic material, complemented with a rotating offering of more obscure cuts, and blasted this to delighted audiences across the UK.

Special guests opening the show will be The Sensational Alex Harvey Experience, the UK’s number one tribute to the legendary The Sensational Alex Harvey Band! Hailing from Alex’s home town of Glasgow, the band have gained a reputation for their authentic high energy show, with original SAHB guitarist Zal Cleminson noting ‘Best SAHB tribute by far!’.

Two outstanding bands playing the music of two of rocks most unique icons in an evening not to be missed!
