Labor Day Weekend 2016 was not the greatest Labor Day we’ve had on the Outer Banks. That’s when Tropical Storm Hermine rolled through.
As tropical systems go, by the time it got to the Outer Banks, it had lost much of its punch. Still, there were some high winds and lots and lots of rain.
And it caused a lot of cancellations and rescheduling.
One of the shows that did get cancelled was Zoso at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo. A Led Zeppelin tribute band, and the reviews have consistently said they’re the best around, the outdoor venue at RIFP would have been the perfect place to see them.
When the show was cancelled, Zoso said they were still hoping to get back to RIFP, and on July 29 they’re making good on that.
This should be an outstanding show. The band is made up of four excellent musicians who have perfected the Led Zeppelin sound.
According to their media kit, one way they do differ from almost every other tribute band is the way in which they put together their shows. Picking and choosing from the many recording the band made, they focus on some of the better known pieces with some lesser known Zepplin works thrown in.
It would be hard to imagine a better setting than the RIFP outdoor stage for a concert. With the show beginning at 7:30, the heat of the day will be mostly gone and there’s often a nice breeze off the sound. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair, sit back, relax and take a journey back to the 1970s.
