This is a post from my bass player, who drove us to that Petit Wazoo 
show on Dec 1, 1972 - this was posted recently on a Kansas musicians

Hey Dawayne,

I remember the night with Frank Zappa very well. If you recall, I was
driving my old VW bus at the time and we drove together from 
Manhattan to Wichita. At the end of the Wazoo show, Zappa was to 
ride with us but things got mixed up at the end and he ended up with 
someone else's ride. He was standing at the door to get in with us 
but..... We caught up with him later. What a night to remember. I 
think either Earl (Dumler) or Roger (Lewis) rode with us.

And this is another post from another fellow Kansan musician who was 
there that night in Wichita - who is also a member of the Kansas

This may have been the same Zappa concert that I was at......long 
time ago! Opening band was Steely Dan....Walter Becker / Donald Fagan

I remember Frank making a comment to the audience...many of you are 
asking for old songs...this is a new band and we're going to play 
new songs ,so shut up and listen.

It was cool! The band was like an orchestra...with lighted music 
stands and Zappa in the corner directing....smoking cigarette on the 
end of his guitar.

Weird stuff, but very musical! There was a strange odor in the air 
and I probably inhaled too much of it.

Am I at the right concert Dawayne?
