Time for a flashback . . . late 1960s, early 70s—Led Zepplin, rock and roll, Dazed and Confused, Stairway to Heaven, Ramble On.
Maybe Jimmy Page, John Bonham, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones won’t be coming to the stage again—Bonham definitely won’t, but the sounds of one of the best rock band ever are still around and tribute band ZoSo is coming to the outdoor theater at Roanoke Island Festival Park on Saturday September 3.
It’s a great venue for music, the early read on the weather is looking really good, so this should be an outstanding show.
Zoso has been around for over 20 years covering Zeppelin tunes and they’re good.
Matt Jernigan has the task of trying to sound like a young Robert Plant and he manages to carry it off—his voice really sounding a lot like Plant’s angry vocals. What made Plant so good was that no matter how much he sounded like he was snarling as he sang, he was always in tune. Jernigan seems to pull that off.
Jimmy Page is legendary blues and rock guitarist, and very deservedly so. Does John McDaniel pull it off? He gets about as close as it comes without having the real thing on stage.
So this looks to be a heck of an evening of music. Bring beach towel or chair, spread out on the lawn outdoors and get ready for A Whole Lotta Love.
