At this year‘s exhibition we will present the comprehensive musical work of the Power Trio Warren Cuccurullo / Patrick O’Hearn / Terry Bozzio. Do you remember Duran Duran or The Missing Persons? … Are included. As well as Warren's collaboration with Arthur Barrow and Tommy Mars in a Free Jazz formation. Terry's discs in cooperation with Herbie Hancock, The Knack, Jeff Beck and Tony Levin (just to name a few) will also be on display here. Patrick’s work with Ravi Shankar, John Hiatt or Richard Marx shows you that he did not only appear on Zappa discs or solo releases.
A real highlight will be Bill Gubbins’ photographs: He shot images of Frank Zappa during the Hot Rats recordings and compiled them for a book. The photos are so far unpublished and we are already very excited.
Artist Olaf Roesler exhibits some of his large format pictures under the motto "Great Googly Moogly in Oil".
Since we are celebrating a small anniversary with the tenth exhibition, we are also holding a review of the sad, the bizarre, the funny, the amazing...
The special events have firmly established themselves on the smallest Zappanale stage. Thursday’s fun from the Warm Up party will get a sequel on Friday with Gabba Zappa Hey! Friends, it's getting loud, fast and "really zappaesque". Afterwards, Fried Dähn will calm us down again with his cello.
On Saturday, you will have a chance to ask Pauline Butcher questions and listen to her stories. Pauline was Zappa's secretary from 1968 to 1972 and founded the fan club "United Mutations". Anecdote on the sidelines: Zappa hired her because of her utter ignorance of contemporary music. When he found out she was asking Eric Clapton what kind of instrument he was playing, she got the job. Afterwards it will continue musically ... let us surprise you!
On Sunday, after their performance with Fried Dähn & Skin of Clazz, Jogi Nestel and Klaus Küting will perform excerpts from their duo concert program with small equipment: Marimba with a small drum set and tenor steel pan. Of course, a little Zappa will be included in the program too. Then you will get the chance to listen to one of the well-founded lectures by Frank Wonneberg. He closes our special event program as every year.
We are looking forward to seeing you at these eventful days at Markt 3, in the center of Bad Doberan. The doors of the exhibition will open on Wednesday at 2PM for three hours. Thursday to Sunday, the exhibition is open from 10AM to 2PM, admission is free.
