Frank Zappa Tribute – Treacherous Cretins feat. ex-Zappa band member Robert ‘Bobby’ Martin

Following a successful Autumn tour in 2022, the Treacherous Cretins are delighted to be touring with ex-Zappa vocalist, keyboardist and saxophonist Robert “Bobby” Martin!

After Robert joined Frank Zappa’s band in 1981, he performed on all of Frank’s tours and live albums from that  time on. In between tours with Zappa, Robert worked with other musical greats, including Paul McCartney, Prince, The Moody Blues, and Etta James, and more. Robert is also a member of The Zappa Band, regularly playing alongside other ex-Zappa bandmembers and keeping the music alive.

Treacherous Cretins is a UK based band formed in 2018 that strives to represent a broad spectrum of Zappa’s music and expose the music to new fans. Its members have played and collaborated with the likes of Dweezil Zappa, Robert Martin, Ike Willis, Ray White, Denny Walley, Craig “Twister” Steward, Candy Zappa and more.

In 2019, they played the opening slot at the 30th Anniversary Zappanale Festival in Bad Doberan, Germany: a yearly festival dedicated to Zappa’s music which draws thousands of fans from all around the world.
Here is a video of Robert performing a Frank Zappa track (Village of the Sun) with the Treacherous Cretins, recorded during the pandemic:
