Don't miss your chance to be there when this talented musician and TV personality performs live in a venue near you. He will be making stops in San Francisco, Hollywood, Seattle and many more cities around North America.


Dweezil Zappa was actually born Ian Donald Calvin Euclid Zappa. The hospital where Zappa was born wouldn't let his famous father put Dweezil on the birth certificate. So, in true rock and roll fashion, Frank Zappa wrote down the names of some musician friends and gave his son the nickname "Dweezil." Dweezil was the name Frank Zappa had given a strangely curled pinky toe on his wife Gail's foot. The nickname stuck, and when Dweezil was five-years-old he discovered it was not his legal name. He demanded that it be changed legally, and his parents obliged.

About the Artist

Dweezil Zappa was born into a rock and roll family as the son of legendary musician Frank Zappa. Growing up around music, gave Dweezil the bug early. He wanted to make his way in the business and uphold the quality that is associated with the Zappa name. He began in career in music by becoming a VJ for MTV in the 1980s. He recorded some solo albums during this time, and was a guest artist on several albums, including The Fat Boys' "Wipe Out" in 1987. He also found work as an actor during this time, playing a small role in The Running Man with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He also famously played the role of Simon in John Hughes' cult-classic film Pretty in Pink.

Then in early 90s, Zappa began working on a solo guitar project that would include solo guitar performances from some of the biggest names in the business. Although it took several years to complete, it is one of his most well-known collaborative efforts. The album includes performances from Brian May, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson and Angus and Malcom Young. He spent the rest of the 90s starring in sitcoms and variety shows alongside his real siblings. But his passion was the guitar and he continued to contribute to his famous friends' albums in a big way. Along with Weird Al Yankovic, Zappa has also appeared on albums for his father's albums and albums by Kip Winger, Extreme and Pat Boone.

He has also recorded and released more than a dozen albums as a solo artist, in a band with his brother Ahmet Zappa and with the band Zappa Plays Zappa. There's nothing this talented guitarist and performer can't do, and he continues to live up to his famous name. He is currently on tour and will be bringing his signature sound to a concert venue near you.
