Led Zeppelin Tribute to Play Town Hall Theater, 6/12
Recreating famous rock & roll records, note for note, is a passion of Clint Bierman and his talented friends. They recently recreated Paul Simon's immortal Graceland before a sold-out house at Middlebury's Town Hall Theater, and they're coming back with a tribute to the world's greatest heavy metal band, Led Zeppelin.
"People are still talking about the Graceland show," says THT executive director Douglas Anderson. "And before that, they came through with a thrilling recreation of three Beatles albums, playing and sounding exactly like the originals. These musicians can play anything."
Rolling Stone calls Led Zeppelin "unquestionably one of the most enduring bands in rock history." The issue with any Led Zeppelin tribute is finding a singer who can handle the towering vocals made famous by Robert Plant. Handling the lead vocals at THT will be Josh Panda. "I've never heard anyone sing Led Zeppelin with as much power and agility as Josh Panda. He played at THT recently and it's a massive voice," says Anderson.
Clint Bierman and Vermont's best rockers will present the tribute to Led Zeppelin for one night only, Thursday, June 12, at 8 pm. Tickets may be purchased at www.townhalltheater.org, at 802 382-9222, at the THT Box Office (Mon-Sat, noon-5 pm) and at the door, if available.
