  1. What our show looks like these days:
  2. It's been far too long since I checked in here, but I wanted to give a heads up for some upcoming Zeppelin USA shows. Our shows have become a more multi-media, big production show, incorporating lasers, video screen and other effects. Still performed as a 4 piece band, and still no wigs and costumes! :-) Sat, January 6 - Cerritos Performing Arts Center, Cerritos, CA Fri, January 12 - Phoenix, AZ, The Van Buren Sat, January 13 - Tucson, AZ, The Rialto Theater I've been very fortunate to have also hooked up with Windborne Music, who do the "Music of Led Zeppelin with Symphonies" shows, featuring Randy Jackson of Zebra. I've done quite a few of the Led Zeppelin shows around the country, and also their Queen, Rolling Stones and David Bowie shows. Our Zeppelin USA singer, Brody, is the main singer for many of their shows. I'm not their main guitarist, but they often have multiple shows going on at the same time, so I get to fill in! I'll be doing the Music of the Rolling Stones with the N Carolina Symphony for 2 nights: Fri, January 19/Sat, January 20 - Duke Energy Performing Arts Center, Raleigh, N Carolina Thanks, and be sure to come say hello if you make it to any of the shows!

  3. Just giving this a bump for anyone in the Tampa/St Petersburg area, we will be out there on April 29, as part of the Mahaffey Theater's 50th Anniversary Week! We're thrilled to be playing in this beautiful venue. Tickets are available HERE (Video on that page as well). We've got a great set planned, with multi-media production, hope some of you can make it out! Would love to say hello to anyone who comes out to it, let me know!
  4. Oakland 7/23/77 O2 Arena 12/10/07 2 shows 30 years apart - damn lucky and grateful for both!
  5. Yeah, we're getting close, but not exactly down the street! :-) Hopefully, we'll get out to Atlanta at some point. If you decide to make a road trip / weekend getaway and head down there, let me know! Edit: Duh, the FL show is on a Wed, not a weekend... Never mind! :-D
  6. Hey all, Time once again to plug my gigs! Hope some of you can make it out to one, especially if any of you are near the Tampa/St Petersburg, FL area, would love to meet some of you! March 20 - The Coach House, San Juan Capistrano, CA April 29 - The Mahaffey Theater, St Petersburg, FL May 24 - Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas, NV You can find more info on these on our Facebook Events Page. Cheers! Steve Z Zeppelin USA
  7. Thanks so much for making it to the show, and for the nice review! We had a blast, and being only our second full show, we all felt it went way better than the first. Hope we can do the Inland Empire again soon!
  8. Sorry you had so much trouble! Here's the pic, thanks for sending it to me!
  9. Thanks Lake, appreciate it! Not sure yet how much this band will be getting around, as it's still very new. Here's hoping, though! Meanwhile, here's our take on 'Kashmir' (I think you can view it even if you're not on Facebook): https://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?v=502592636463921
  10. Thanks M, we'll see you there! Really looking forward to the show. Here's a preview, Ramble On, from our Mar 1 show in Vegas.
  11. Our next show is March 30 at the M15 Bar & Grill in Corona, CA. The Vegas show Mar 1 went great, and we hope to have some video from it posted soon. Hope some of you around SoCal can make it on Mar 30!
  12. Just getting started, so no other dates yet, but keep checking when you have your trip planned! We also have a new website that will have all our dates listed: http://www.zusarocks.com Thanks a bunch!
  13. Since some of you here followed my previous band, I thought I'd start a thread here for my brand new Led Zep tribute band, "Zeppelin USA" or "ZUSA." We've played a couple of benefit shows in Las Vegas and Southern CA, and we have our first full-length show coming up Mar 1 in Vegas. This time, it's just the music, no costumes or wigs, which is just fine by me! If you're anywhere near the Vegas area, come on out, we'd love to see you! If you're on Facebook, you can follow us HERE. Here's a video of 'Stairway' from our second show:
  14. I was at the first day, July 23 (before the brawl!). Yes, the openers were Judas Priest & Derringer. But only Derringer was advertised, so when Judas Priest took the stage & were announced, everybody went, "Huh?" I'd never heard of them, and it didn't seem like anyone else had either. The only thing I remember them playing was 'Diamonds & Rust,' since I knew that one as a Joan Baez song. They didn't go over too well. Much more recently, a drummer in another band I was playing in, told me he was also at that show and stayed at the same hotel as Priest. He hung out with them a bit, and they told him they were recommended by Zep for the show because they were friends with Plant & Bonham from back in the UK. Derringer were fantastic, they had just put out the "Derringer Live" album, and played all that stuff. Full of energy. I remember it was the first time I'd seen wireless transmitters on guitars before, and at one point Rick Derringer & his other guitarist, Danny Johnson, tossed their guitars across the stage to each other! I also clearly remember Zep's opening of 'The Song Remains the Same' and the crowd just drowning them out for what seemed like a good couple of minutes. They were so pumped up! And then again, as you reported in your story, when they started Stairway, the crowd drowned them out again. What a day...
