Stinkfoot Orchestra - A Zappa Tribute featuring Napoleon Murphy Brock

On Friday, December 16, The Community Center for the Performing Arts welcomes Stinkfoot Orchestra back to the WOW Hall for a Zappa tribute show featuring Napoleon Murphy Brock.

For those who were not able to catch the Stinkfoot Orchestra's maiden voyage to the Pacific Northwest this last summer, you missed quite a show. Not only does the 14-piece band present the music of Frank Zappa with integrity and authenticity, but their tour (which featured Zappa alum Ike Willis) received rave reviews every place they planted their flag - leaving audiences up and down the left coast pining for more.

 

Well, pine no more, good people.

 

This December, SFO will be making a return trip to the Pacific Northwest with stops in Seattle, Portland, Eugene and Arcata - this time with one of Frank's most beloved vocalists of all time - Napoleon Murphy Brock.

 

As the iconic front man for Frank Zappa's most infamous 1970's ensemble, Napoleon Murphy Brock helped breathe life into many of Frank's most enduring compositions over the course of 4 albums including what many consider Zappa's greatest live release, Roxy and Elsewhere. Decades later, the Grammy Award-winning San Jose native's voice and performance is as strong as ever - still boasting a 4-octave range - and his magnetic personality continues to dominate the stage.

If you were able to catch their performance at the WOW Hall this last summer with Ike Willis, you know what an amazing show to expect. If you missed them last time, don't make the same mistake twice.

 

“The Stinkfoot Orchestra with Napoleon Murphy Brock admirably delivered all the musical virtuosity, compositional non-conformity, and satire of American culture that Frank Zappa distilled within his extensive oeuvre. The impression left upon driving home from this experience was one of deep appreciation mixed with laughter and amazement.” - Ted Silverman, Jambase

 


The W.O.W. Hall will comply with all COVID-19 Guidelines issued by the State of Oregon and the CDC at the time of the event. This may entail limitations on capacity that might be lower than the number of tickets sold and/or event cancellation.
