Returning to Germany for Zappanale

The Z3’s "Funky Takes on Frank” began as Tim, Beau and Bill’s way of playing the music they’ve obsessed over for years to the audiences that come to see them right now. With nothing but guitar, Hammond organ/keys, drums and three voices, The Z3 tackled everything from Freak Out to Broadway the Hard Way with a playful and adventurous spirit that has thus far tickled the fancies of both diehard FZ fans as well as those that "never knew they liked him.” And then they met Ed Mann.
