Cuccurullo Brillo Brullo with very, very special guest Ike Willis

The very successful performance of Cuccurullo Brillo Brullo with Ike Willis at Zappanale 16 in Germany has lead to a new collaboration.

Ike Willis will be featuring as a very, very special guest in some exclusive shows with the awesome Dutch Zappa tribute band Cuccurullo Brillo Brullo.

It was while in college at Washington University, St. Louis that Ike Willis and Frank Zappa met. As a guitar player since the age of 8, Ike was studying political science. He volunteered to help with the concert committee just so he could get a back stage pass to meet Frank Zappa.The rest as they say , is history.

Ike Willis was Frank Zappa’s lead singer and rhythm guitarist from 1977 until Frank Zappa’s untimely death in 1993. Ike Willis recorded – he played on 30 (!!) albums - and toured with Frank Zappa from 1978 until 1988 (with the exception of 1981 and 1982 for personal reasons) and was one of the few sidemen to survive the many , many incarnations of Frank Zappa’s exceptional bands. A truly amazing voice, coupled with a style of guitar playing that is reminiscent of that unimitatable Zappa melodic style. He is most recognized for his involvement in Zappa records such as Joe’s Garage, Tinseltown Rebellion, You are what you is and as the title character and narrator in Zappa’s bizarre off-Broadway-styled-conceptual musical Thing Fish.

As the longest playing member of Frank Zappa fame , Ike is still upholding his promise to Frank. That promise is to continue on playing the music of Frank Zappa and Ike has continued the Zappa sound legacy through his own music, as well as performances with ensembles performing Frank Zappa’s music on three continents.
The last time that Ike played in Holland was during Frank Zappa’s last tour in 1988 and now after 18 years (!!) Ike is back in Holland and ready to do some exclusive concerts with the Dutch Zappaian Company Cuccurullo Brillo Brullo.
