Breaking news: Ike Willis will be joining ZAPPATiKA for four shows in The Netherlands and the UK. The Just Passin' Thru tour comes to Utrecht, London, Exeter and Liverpool:

Ike Willis (b. November 14, 1955) is an American singer and guitarist who was a regular sideman for Frank Zappa, first joining Zappa's band for the fall 1978 tour and remaining in the band for several years, also touring with Zappa for his final two tours in 1984 and 1988.

He is most recognized for his involvement in Zappa records such as playing Joe in Joe's Garage, providing vocals on Tinsel Town Rebellion, You Are What You Is, and The Man from Utopia, and as the title character and narrator in Zappa's off-Broadway-styled conceptual musical Thing-Fish.

Ike and ZAPPATiKA last joined forces on stage with a dynamic 3 hour show at the Zappanale Festival in Germany in 2010 and so now, they are all really looking forward to these shows.
