Zoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience, Hand of Doom, Power House
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."
Hand of Doom is Idaho's Premier Black Sabbath Tribute band. Formed in early 2015 by longtime friends who share not only a lifelong affliction for Black Sabbath but cite the songs and musicians of Sabbath as inspirations for their own musical paths from the time they began playing instruments. These guys are true Sabbatarians and play not only the songs everyone knows and loves, but a lot of the more obscure tunes that will be appreciated by true diehard Sabbath fans. They sound like Sabbath. Dave naturally plays and sounds like Geezer, Gary sounds like Ozzy and Tony both, citing Tony as a huge influence. Troy kicks out the Bill Ward parts with a slamming gusto rarely heard, and Jamis (whose love for Black Sabbath is usurped by nobody on this planet) holds down the crunchy sludgy foundation with authority and conviction. See 'em once and you'll be back for more.
