Zeppelin USA

Recommended Posts

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:

Hi Steve...I was just going to post in the Next Show thread that I was going to see your new band and happy to see you started a new thread for ZUSA. Which means you will be stopping by the forum more often now. I look forward to seeing the show at M15 on the 30th.

Congrats on your new band!

I'm hoping that maybe eventually you'll be able to make it to my neck of the woods. I know it's extremely unlikely, but hey, a girl can dream.

:stereo:

P.S. I like your hat.

I went to see Steve's new band last night and I had such a good time. While I enjoyed Led Zepagain, I have to say Zeppelin USA is even better. The music was so much tighter to what it must have been like listening to them live. I have never had that pleasure, but I know Steve has, so attention to detail in the music is what was focused on. Brody has a swagger and stage personal that makes it entertaining. Pat was hard hitting on the drums. Jonathan was great on the bass, mandolin and keyboards. And Steve, as usual, your guitar work is the best IMHO. Well, outside of Jimmy's anyway.

I know some of you here are not a fan of tribute bands and they do not try to mimic the look or persona of the band we all love so much here. But the focus is on the music. So I would reccomend attending a show of ZUSA if you get the chance.

Glad you had the chance to catch them and enjoyed the show . I'm looking forward to having that same opportunity one day myself. Personally, I like the idea of them just focusing in on the music and leaving the costumes behind. The live era before 1973 was always my favorite Zeppelin live era. The days before the gimmicks when the band really did just let the music do the talking :)

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!

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

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!
