WHOLE LOTTA LED - ZEPHYR LOUNGE


WHOLE LOTTA LED - ZEPHYR LOUNGE

Just over a year after the bands debut Zephyr Lounge show Whole Lotta Led bought their Zep magic back to the venue, unfortunately vocalist Lee was suffering with a cold which although it must have affected his performance (like the whole band I am pretty sure he is a perfectionist when it comes to the music/performance) for me it did not hinder the show at all.

Again the performance weighed in at well over two hours but unlike last year supplied in one mega set and I was impressed by the number of changes bringing in the likes of ‘Celebration Day' and the rarely heard ‘Royal Orleans'.

Of course the absolute classic Zeppelin knockouts were kept in place so still room for my standout number from last year ‘Ramble On' where once more I (along with many others I am sure) looked on in amazement at the amazing drumming and work rate of Charles.

Other must haves in the set present and correct a magical ‘Stairway To Heaven', the Eastern promise of the mighty ‘Kashmir', ‘Black Dog' (a real test for Lee on the vocals) and lead guitarist Nicks showpiece ‘Dazed and Confused'.

A special mention must go to a jaw dropping ‘When the Levee Breaks' for its thunderous drum work, bluesy harmonica and top slide lead guitar and a simply beautiful ‘The Rain Song'.

One encore this evening and no surprise as a large dose of incendiary drumming introduced the mighty ‘Rock and Roll'.

Great show again lads and maybe see you here next year and on another note I am impressed by a few of the changes to the Zephyr since my last visit with the improved stage lighting and stage in general.
