A Led Zeppelin tribute band that’s been performing for 30 years is returning to Chilliwack to rock the Cultural Centre.
American hard rock tribute band Led Zepagain will be performing live on Monday, Sept. 23.
“It’s as close as you’ll ever get to the real deal,” says guitarist Jimmy Page who founded the rock band Led Zeppelin in 1968.
Celebrating 30 years, Led Zepagain captures the heart and soul of the English rock band replicating the ultimate Led Zeppelin experience.
From the high-energy electric classics to the beautiful acoustic works, you will be mesmerized as Led Zepagain resurrects Page’s soaring guitar leads, John Paul Jones’ brilliant keyboard passages, John Bonham’s trademark pounding rhythms and the signature Robert Plant vocals.
As you experience immortal classics Stairway to Heaven, Immigrant Song, Whole Lotta Love, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Black Dog, you’ll understand why Led Zepagain has become highly regarded as the most authentic representation of Led Zeppelin in the world today.
With well over a million downloads on iTunes to their credit, Led Zepagain has also entered pop culture, having been mentioned on network TV shows The Gilmore Girls, Chicago Fire and Bad Judge.
When Page attended a Led Zepagain show at the House of Blues in Los Angeles he was absolutely astonished.
“It’s amazing how much you sound like us. You were inside the music, and you paid attention to detail in your presentation. I can tell you really love our music,” he said.
As a result, members of Led Zepagain attended Led Zeppelin’s 2007 Reunion Concert at London’s O2 Arena by invitation of Page. Additionally, the band received a surprise visit from Jason Bonham (John Bonham’s son) in March of 2009 as he sat in with the band on their encore performance of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Led Zepagain has been featured on AXS TV’s World’s Greatest Tribute Bands (2014) and were asked to return, performing the iconic Led Zeppelin album lV in its entirety (2017).
The band consists of vocalist/harmonica player Swan Montgomery (as Robert Plant), guitarist/mandolinist Anthony David Thymiakos (as Jimmy Page), bassist/keyboardist/mandolinist Jim Wootten (as John Paul Jones) and drummer/percussionist Derek Smith (as John Bonham), playing to packed houses around the world.
From the sound and the look to the vintage equipment and costuming, Led Zepagain will be the closest thing that you will ever see to a live Led Zeppelin performance.
