Lez Zeppelin Comes To The Colonial
Berkshire Theatre Group will present Lez Zeppelin at The Colonial Theatre on Saturday, February 9 at 8pm. Tickets are $25.
Founded in 2004, the all-girl quartet Lez Zeppelin, has gained critical acclaim as one of the most exciting live acts around, becoming the first female rock act to pay homage to Led Zeppelin. Legendary guitarist and Led Zeppelin founder, Jimmy Page said, "They played the Led Zeppelin music with an extraordinary sensuality and an energy and passion that highlighted their superb musicianship."
What sets Lez Zeppelin apart is the seamless and unique way they infuse their gender-bending performance into the original material. They have been featured on the BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, MTV, VH1, FOX and radio shows worldwide, such as Sirius XM and NPR.
The group's first studio album, Lez Zeppelin, was produced by multi-Grammy Award-winner and producer/engineer, Eddie Kramer, whose long-term associations include: Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and Kiss. The group's second LP, Lez Zeppelin I, is an authentic re-make of Led Zeppelin's first album, using the same vintage equipment employed by Led in 1968.
Since Lez Zeppelin's formation, the group has broken glass ceilings, whether it's playing on a catwalk above Times Square for 40,000, playing the main stage at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival or taking the stage at Madison Square Garden. Spin Magazine called them, "The most powerful all-female band in rock history."
There will be pre-show entertainment by Jack Waldheim in The Garage (located in the lobby of The Colonial Theatre) at 6:30pm. Refreshments and snacks will be available at The Garage bar.
