Eyellusion, the company behind the hologram, signed a contract with representatives of Zappa’s family to bring the artist’s image and voice to a world tour and set up the Bizarre World Of Frank Zappa Band, made up of former stage mates of the musician.
The band includes guitarists Ray White and Mike Keneally, bassist Scott Thunes, multi-instrumentalist Robert Martin, percussionist Ed Mann and drummer Joe “Vaultmeister” Travers.
“Let’s push the boundaries of what anyone has seen, holographically, on stage,” Ahmet Zappa, the artist’s son, told The Guardian newspaper earlier this year. According to him, his father was a futurist and sought to break down barriers, so taking him to the stage after being dead with the help of technology is part of that paradigm.
