Whole Lotta Led return to The Corn Hall, Cirencester, on Saturday 10th June, to recreate the distinctive sounds and vibes of one of the world’s favourite rock bands.
From the searing, emotive guitar in Since I’ve Been Loving You, to the rock-excess of the drum solo in Moby Dick, Whole Lotta Led display a professional level of musicianship and painstaking attention to detail in their tribute to Led Zeppelin.
One of the biggest rock acts of all time, Led Zeppelin dominated the Seventies before imploding in 1980 after the untimely death of legendary drummer John Bonham. Since then, something of a myth has been built up around them, yet their timeless music still appeals to discerning rock fans of all ages.
Whole Lotta Led play two and a half hour sets and perform around 100 concerts a year to enthusiastic crowds. New generations are getting involved in the Zeppelin experience, audiences span four generations from six to 60 and, for most, it is the first opportunity of seeing Zeppelin’s music performed live.
The band have also been very active in raising funds for The ABC Trust, a charity founded by Jimmy Page's wife to help under- privileged children in Brazil, the involvement with the charity eventually led to a meeting with Led Zeppelin's legendary guitarist Jimmy Page who has given the band his blessing and wished them all the best.
Cotswold District Council Events Officer Rik Husdan said: “Whole Lotta Led are quick to say that they are not a look-a-like band, but they are definitely a sound-a-like band. With a drums and bass rhythm section of rare quality; a guitarist and vocalist who front the band with undeniable enthusiasm, they rightly deserve their billing as one of the UK's top tribute bands. “So if you want to experience the magic of Led Zeppelin, the next best thing for ‘Zep’ Fans and rock fans alike is to come to The Corn Hall and let Whole Lotta Led take you on a Stairway to Heaven!”
Tickets cost £10 in advance (available from Cirencester Tourist Information Centre) and £12 on the door.
