Zoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience, Defenders of the Faith, Vault7
Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating
Led Zeppelin live show since the real thing. For Zoso, it’s much more than just being a tribute. It’s about
touching a golden era in music. Zoso embodies Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones in their spirit, tightly
wound talent and authenticity.
Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their
Led Zeppelin counterparts. In eighteen successful years of touring, they have perfected their art. As one of
the longest tenured Zeppelin tributes, Zoso’s 2400 live shows around the world, including a slot at
Bonnaroo in 2003, have established them as the most traveled and successful band in the market.
Zoso’s live shows are not about simply playing the right notes, they are about aura and feeling, harkening
back to the unique atmosphere Led Zeppelin created. It’s in the way they play: Each band member’s
mastery of authentic vintage instruments coupled with spoton vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards,
their compelling stage persona and distinct Led Zeppelin sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates
the music, magic, and mystery of a Zeppelin concert. The impact is so powerful that band members
constantly hear from young rockers that they were the catalyst behind turning them into new, diehard Zeppelin fans.
Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim,
name recognition and a loyal national following. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being "head and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes," and the Chicago SunTimes declared Zoso is "the
closest to the original of any tribute." If you missed Led Zeppelin live in the 70's or are looking to relive the "Hammer of the Gods" phenomenon,
you must experience what the St. Petersburg Times calls "the most exacting of the Zeppelin tribute bands in existence."
Defenders of The Faith honors the timeless music of Judas Priest. Front man Gerrad Anthony formed the group back in 2008. “We want to do justice to the music and play quality shows for PRIEST fans here in the Northwest. We realize the close proximity to Vegas, Reno, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake and everything in between. Priest fans are passionate and will never get enough. We know that if DOF can truly “Deliver the Goods”, we have a lot of great times ahead”.
Defenders of the Faith is Lead Vocalist Gerrad Anthony, Guitarists Joshua Taube and Doug O’Neill, Bassist Robert Walther, and Drummer Darin Kuntupis.
