THE FURIOUS BONGOS PLAY THE MUSIC OF FRANK ZAPPA

With a home base split between Madison, WI and the Washington, DC area, The Furious Bongos are a Frank Zappa tribute band who understand that however people describe Zappa, safe or vanilla aren't usually first in mind. The Bongos appreciate the dirt under his fingernails, and they don't shy away from taking risks and putting on a great show.

When bassist/arranger Conrad St. Clair and violinist/vocalist Biff Blumfumgagnge decided to tackle this project, knowing Zappa drew on influences ranging from Stravinsky to Leadbelly, they felt it was important to assemble musicians with backgrounds as far-flung as his influences.

The result is an extremely diverse band with a serious collective resume, including work with artists like Yo Yo Ma, Mick Fleetwood, Robert Fripp, and Les Paul.
