Live Music: The Stinkfoot Orchestra
|Date:||July 29, 2022|
As the iconic voice who contributed to multiple Zappa ensembles, Ike Willis is best known as the voice of
Joe from Joe’s Garage. Holding the title of the musician who spent the most years making music with
Frank, Willis’ unmistakeable baritone voice helped breathe life into many of Frank’s most enduring
compositions over the course of 10 years and 10+ albums. Decades later, Ike’s voice is as strong as ever
and brings an immediate sense of familiarity to the music of the Stinkfoot Orchestra.
Incorporating a 6-piece horn section, tuned percussion and 5 vocalists, this 15-piece ensemble pulls no
punches – delivering Frank’s music with power, authenticity and musical prowess. Founded by 35-year
veteran of the SF Bay Area music scene, Nick Chargin, the Stinkfoot Orchestra has spent the last 2 and a
half years honing their craft and are finally taking their long-awaited show to the stage.
