American Idol style vocals? Is that what Frank's music needs in 2016?

Yeah, I am not too thrilled with her either. Especially Doreen.

She's good and sounds like she will only get better with time as all who play FZ's music tend to do... :idea:

Buffalo Canalside show rocked. My 12th since 2006. 555 was a great way to set the night off. Beach was a blast. The Freak-Out tracks were fun too.
Mikki kicks ass and fits right in. I was highly suspect too, but she really did a fine job, especially on ...Call Me(as performed on Philly '76). The '80s medley was cool for about 4 minutes, but then it dragged and took away time from real songs. It's the penalty track of this tour. :P

I wonder if that's there so the ZFT can't legally claim it's a Zappa tribute band, since they play songs by other artists. (a medley is a good way to pump up the list of artists they play).

I thought she was ok. A little shrill at times. It would have been better to hire a marimba/vibes player.

A lot of people gave Ben a really hard time and he turned out fine, they are not going to expand the fan base with people who already like FZ music so they need to make it more accessible with younger musicians that a more diverse crowd Wil be attracted to. .. :idea:
