„Frank Out!“ is one of the two successor bands of "Sheik Yerbouti" from Hessen/Rheinland Pfalz. "No one gets closer to Zappa than Sheik Yerbouti ", was the verdict of the Rhein-Zeitung from Mainz at the time.
Last year the Grandsheiks (the remains of the original Sheik Yerbouti enforced by wonderful musicians) were on stage at the Zappanale. This year the other half of the Sheiks (Thomas Jung, Harry Sebel and „Sweet“ Georg Rademacher) will be there. Under the name “Frank Out!”. They will be supported by the Sheik Yerbouti founding member Kai Rotfuchs, the former Sheik Marco Steffen and bassist Jürgen Kochler from the Hunsrück.
They are looking forward to “performing a firework of Zappa classics, stomping Rock songs and wild Jazz improvisations” and with the voice of Harry Sebel they will make the Zappa fans dream.
But Frank Out! will already be in the starting blocks earlier. They have developed the musical program of the concert on Wednesday in Hamburg together with Robert Martin, and will be on stage there together with Albert Wing for the first time. So Albert Wing will join the list of alumni guest musicians of SheikYerbouti/FrankOut!, which already includes Robert Martin, Denny Walley, Ed Mann, Mike Keneally and Napoleon Murphy Brock.
