If you love Led Zepplin you won’t want to miss the Led Zepagain Tribute band coming to the lakecity Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Based in California Led Zepagain is hailed as the most authentic representation of Led Zeppelin in the world today.

Led Zepagain was founded 20 years ago in Ventura, California by Tracy Longo.

David Swan Montgomery, on vocals and harmonica, in the role of Robert Plant, is the longest surviving member of the tribute band.

Born in Brogheda, Ireland he is an Irish entrepreneur, musician, vocalist and producer/engineer most notable as the lead singer of this internationally successful tribute band.

An accomplished producer and engineer Swan has currently reached beyond the bounds of Led Zepagain’s electric show and created Symphony to Heaven, a full-production acoustic show featuring custom visuals and a quartet playing original string arrangements to many of Zeppelin’s classic acoustic songs.

In addition, Swan and his partner, Bo Whineberg, have recently created Evermore, a full-scale multimedia production on par with the scale of a Cirque de Soleil-type show or the Beatles Love show, currently in production.

Jim Wootten, on bass, keyboards, mandolin, guitar, vocal masterfully fills the role of John Paul Jones.

He comes from a very musical family. His father Red Wootten played bass with Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman and Woody Herman to name a few. His uncle and aunt are world renown recording artists Les Paul and Mary Ford.

Jones’ other tribute projects include the popular southern California tributes The Long Run Experience the Eagles and 4 Way Street, Celebrating the Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

Jim Kersey on drums/percussion fills the role of the late, great John “Bonzo” Bonham. His rendition of the Zeppelin classic drum solo epic Moby Dick leaves audiences shouting for more.

Kersey is also an in-demand session drummer and recently recorded tracks for Joe Porcaro’s new book/CD, Drumset Method Grooving with Rudiments, published by Hal Leonard Company.

Christian Nesmith on lead guitar takes on the role of Jimmy Page. The son of famous Monkees guitar player Michael Nesmith. Nesmith toured with Air Supply in 2011 and just finished touring with The Monkees reunion in Nov. 2012.

The Led Zepagain concert is Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Gibraltar Room. Tickets are available at Audio Video Unlimited.
