One Shot Deal Plays Zappa | Cohalen’s Adventures Presents

March 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Ticket Sales Help Support JAX Feed The Need

Celebrating the compositional genius and vast catalog of late composer Frank Zappa, One Shot Deal is comprised of musicians from the original, Grammy Award-winning lineup of Zappa Plays Zappa. During their time with ZPZ, one reviewer referred to bassist Pete Griffin (ZPZ 2006-2011), percussionist Billy Hulting and guitarist Jamie Kime (ZPZ 2006-2012), drummer and Zappa “Vaultmeister” Joe Travers (ZPZ 2006-2013), saxophonist/keyboardist/vocalist Scheila Gonzalez (ZPZ 2006-2020), and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Ben Thomas (ZPZ 2009-2016), as “the best band Frank never had”.

Following their individual ZPZ tenures, they would all go on to acquire a comprehensive list of touring and recording credits before reuniting in 2022 to play a limited series of shows at distinguished Los Angeles jazz club The Baked Potato. Subsequent to that sold-out run, they collectively agreed that the music of Frank Zappa was much too important – and they also had far too much fun playing it together again! – for the group to merely be a “one shot deal”. Since then, they’ve been performing extensively throughout Southern California and look forward to touring nationally in 2024.

The band performs at Campus JAX on Friday, March 15, and is joined by special guest, legendary guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist (and 1988 Frank Zappa alumnus)
