BONZO: The Groove Remains The Same: A Double Encore!

Due to the overwhelming success and positive feedback from the audience AND drummers at the first "Bonzo: The Groove Remains The Same" John Bonham tribute show on Zeptember 25th, 2010, Briian Tichy and Joe Sutton agreed to look into doing it again.

The problem was; Briian Tichy would be on tour next year with Whitesnake for most of 2011 into 2012.

The only way to go for it again was to have the show sooner than later. And while looking into this, two back to back dates came up! The drummers all agreed two shows are better than one! Most of the drummers are back as well!

Event idea-man and Whitesnake drummer Briian Tichy said, "Hey, we all had a great night! It was a huge success and we wanted to do it again. The time and energy that was put into the show made it all the more easy to set back up and hit again! We have the Amber Vistalite drumkit and 3-ring-logo backdrop, so why let it collect dust!

It's all about tributing to rock's greatest drummer, John Henry Bonham. That is a timeless endeavor! The communal spirit of the rehearsals and show bonded us and solidified the common reasons why we all chose drumming as a way of life. Yeah! Plus, Led Zeppelin is the best, there are lots of people that wanted to see it but couldn't, and there's never anything wrong with giving it up to John Bonham!

We'd also like to welcome our friends; fellow Bonzo freaks/ rhythmic badasses Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Xavier Muriel (Buckcherry), Jason Sutter (Foreigner, Chris Cornell) and John Tempesta (The Cult, White Zombie) to the festivities!

Legendary disc jockey, KLOS's own Uncle Joe Benson is also back hosting both nights!"

Awesome, thanks for posting Sam! The YouTube clips of this gig are fantastic, really cool to see Slade playing The Ocean, among others. Abe, McCartney's drummer, was awesome on Heartbreaker too.

Now if only they could be convinced to take this show on the road to NY so I could see it!
