The Stinkfoot Orchestra Featuring Napolean Murphy Brock

August 30 @ 7:00 PM - 11:30 PM

The Miners Foundry Cultural Center is pleased to present The Stinkfoot Orchestra — a 14-piece tribute to Frank Zappa — featuring Napolean Murphy Brock on Friday, August 30, 2024. Bar opens at 7:00 p.m. and the Show begins at 8:00 p.m.

This show features one of Zappa’s most beloved vocalists of all time – Napoleon Murphy Brock. As the iconic front man for Frank Zappa’s most infamous 1970’s ensemble, Napoleon Murphy Brock helped breathe life into many of Frank’s most enduring compositions over the course of four albums including what many consider to be Zappa’s greatest live release, Roxy and Elsewhere.

Decades later, the Grammy Award-winning San Jose native’s voice and performance are as strong as ever – still boasting a four-octave range and a magnetic personality that dominates the stage.

The Stinkfoot Orchestra

The Stinkfoot Orchestra pulls no punches – delivering two sets of Frank’s music via a 14-piece ensemble which incorporates a six-piece horn section, tuned percussion, and five vocalists. Founded in 2019 by Nick Chargin – a 35-year veteran of the SF Bay Area music scene, the Stinkfoot Orchestra has been taking their show to the stage since September of 2021 – bringing along Zappa alumni along for the ride.

The Stinkfoot Orchestra presents the intricacies and eccentricities of Frank’s music with power, authenticity, and musical prowess – leaving even the most critical Zappaphile pining for more. If you were able to catch the ensemble’s last trip to Nevada City, you know what an amazing show to expect. If you missed it, don’t make the same mistake twice.

“The Stinkfoot Orchestra with Napoleon Murphy Brock admirably delivered all the musical virtuosity, compositional non-conformity, and satire of American culture that Frank Zappa distilled within his extensive oeuvre. The impression left upon driving home from this experience was one of deep appreciation mixed with laughter and amazement.” – Ted Silverman, Jambase.
