WESTCHESTER Magazine: Catch Frank Zappa ‘Live’ at The Capitol Theatre — As a Hologram
Westchester Magazine writer, Johnathan Ortiz, previews the much anticipated Eyellusion Production, “The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa” for opening night at Westchester’s own Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY.
Working alongside Jeff Pezzuti, CEO of hologram production company Eyellusion and a longtime Westchester resident, Zappa is bringing his father’s music to life through The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa tour, including longtime Zappa players Ray White, Mike Keneally, Scott Thunes, Robert Martin, and Ed Mann with Joe Travers.
Debuting at Port Chester’s The Capitol Theatre on April 19, the tour will hit nine U.S. stops, followed by seven in Europe, featuring surreal imagery crafted from the lore and subject matter of many of Frank Zappa’s songs, as well as imagery and art styles from classic album artwork. Below, we catch up with (the younger) Zappa and Pezzuti to talk the tour’s details, and get the inside scoop on how a Frank Zappa hologram is brought to life.
