Accompanied Under 16s Free
To celebrate 20 years of Jazz Steps at the Bonington Theatre we asked John Etheridge if he could reform the Zappatistas to help us kick off an amazing season of music.
Originally commissioned by Dave Groom at Notts County Council for a one off gig in 1998, Zappatistas have continued to revel in the delights of the Frank Zappa canon. With classics such as Peaches en Regalia and the Grand Wazoo, Etheridge’s guitar captures the spirit of Zappa while the band have great fun letting rip with the arrangements as though at their own private party.
