    On their webpage it says Dave Johnson plays bass. I saw Project Object on Tuesday night. They were really good, and did a lot of material from the Mothers era. Highlights:

    Excentrifugal Forz -> Apostrophe
    Advance Romance
    Bamboozeled By Love
    5 5 5
    Montana

    I was unable to access that URL for whatever reason, but having seen them once before in Newport RI early last summer, I wanted to do my homework on the band. The bass player they had that night was a fill in from the local area, though he did a very credible job on some very demanding material.

    Ike played some material from Joe's Garage, and a bunch of stuff I didn't know, all of it top notch.
    My son and a few other guys got into a stump each other Zappa trivia contest which he won hands down. Great band, I looking forward to seeing them again on the 1st of April at the Met Cafe in Providence.
