Zappa Tribute: Pojama People, Ike Willis

AP KRYZA

Dante's
350 W Burnside St.
 
[ZAPPA TRIBUTE] While Dweezil Zappa continues to make the rounds paying tribute to his father by playing with former band members and charging ridiculous amounts of money for what is essentially a cover band, Eugene sextet Pojama People continues to do something far more genuine. This is a highly skilled set of musicians—which includes former Zappa multi-instrumentalist Ike Willis—that pays homage as a form of hero worship, rocketing through Zappa’s catalog in a way that’s gloriously imperfect but nonetheless embraces his weirdness and deranged musicality in all its glory. It’s a fantastic love letter, and one that won’t cost you $50.
