Stairway to Lake Tahoe: Zeppelin tribute coming to Crown Room
Led Zeppelin tribute band Led Zepagain is scheduled to once again bring a whole lotta love this weekend to the Crystal Bay Casino.
A Led Zepagain show features all of the Zeppelin highlights, from the high-energy electric classics, to the acoustic works; from the soaring leads on the double-neck guitar, to the brilliant keyboard passages, and from the high, Robert Plant screams, to the trademark pounding rhythms, according to the band’s press materials.
A born and bred Irishman from Drogheda, Ireland, lead singer Swan Montgomery’s portrayal of Robert Plant has placed him consistently among LA’s most popular performers since the early 1990s.
Swan has toured Ireland, the UK, Europe, and all over the United States. He’s lent his voice to numerous recordings, including the widely released “Witchblade Soundtrack,” which featured G. Tom Mac and Roger Daltry.
A nephew of Les Paul, multi-instrumentalist Jim Wootten fills the demanding role of John Paul Jones, covering bass, keyboards, mandolin, acoustic six- and 12-string guitars and backing vocals.
With an amazing feel for John Bonham, drummer Jim Kersey leaves audiences shouting for more, especially after every performance of Zeppelin’s classic drum solo epic, “Moby Dick!”
Jimmy Sakurai rounds out the band’s quartet of rock, playing lead guitar and mimicking the legendary licks of Jimmy Page.
Led Zepagain, founded in 1989, performs for free at 10 p.m. Saturday in the Crystal Bay Crown Room. Learn more at crystalbaycasino.com or zepagain.com.
