The American Led Zeppelin
Posted on 11/15/2017
"The American Led Zeppelin,” Get The Led Out (GTLO) delivers a high-energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity. See the Zeppelin tribute band hailed as “Simply BRILLIANT!” perform at State Theatre New Jersey on November 22.
Formed in 1968 by guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham, Led Zeppelin violently shook the foundation of rock music to its core. The band transformed rock music and influenced nearly all variations of rock that followed, from hard and heavy metal to alternative and punk rock.
Individually, each band member was a superb musician capable of combining musical excellence and technical mastery. Together, the intense drumming, melodic keyboard, extraordinary bass, transcendent guitar, and booming vocals created a perfect jigsaw puzzle where all pieces fit into place “Zeppelin was the space between us,” notes John Paul Jones.
Zeppelin’s music was a marriage of American blues and British folk, influenced with themes from Norse and Greek Mythology, Middle Eastern mysticism, Tolkien lore, and sexual innuendo. The Zeppelin sound was defined by contrasts—acoustic and hard rock, fast and slow passages, light and shade, highs and lows. The result was primal and authentic rock unlike anything heard before. They were masters at creating the heavy rock sound inside the studio. Multi-layered tracks, tape echo, and strategic mic placement captured the energy of the musicians and produced a rich and full sound that erupted though speakers.
Get The Led Out recreates Led Zeppelin’s studio recordings on the big concert stage. Called “the premier Zeppelin tribute band,” GTLO captures the passion and intensity of Zeppelin’s music and brings it to the live stage in a high energy performance.
GTLO includes veteran musicians Paul Sinclair on lead vocals and harmonica; Adam Ferraioli on drums and percussion; Andrew Lipke, vocals, guitar, theremin, and keyboard; Paul Hammond on guitar and mandolin; Jimmy Marchiano on guitar and vocals; Phil DeAgostino on bass; and guest vocalist Diana DeSantis. GTLO’s utilization of multi-instruments enable them to re-create the layered harmonies and “guitar army” wall of sound that Zeppelin themselves never performed live.
A Get The Led Out concert captures the showmanship and passion Led Zeppelin brought to the live stage. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear GTLO perform Led Zeppelin’s epic hits like you’ve never heard them before at State Theatre New Jersey on Wed, November 22, 2017 at 8pm!
