Zep Boys Can Turn Led Into Solid Gold

Zep Boys Can Turn Led Into Solid Gold

Who: The Zep Boys
Where: Civic Theatre
When: Saturday October 8, 2005

ALMOST 20 years after making their debut at the Findon Hotel in Adelaide, The Zep Boys continue to rock out across the country paying homage to one of the world's greatest rock bands.

Since 1986, the Zep Boys have been performing the music of Led Zeppelin to packed houses across Australia.

Led Zeppelin fans have high expectations when it comes to hearing their favourite songs live and according to vocalist Vince Contarino, this is one of the reasons the band is still together.

``The challenge of playing Zeppelin never decreases, no matter how many performances we have under our belts,'' Contarino said.

``We still get an enormous thrill and great satisfaction delivering the goods to the people that have been coming to see us for almost two decades now.'' The Zep Boys will bring the show to Civic Theatre Newcastle on Saturday, October 8.

Led Zeppelin fans are in for a treat with the band renowned for not only playing the classics but also a few obscure tunes as well.

``Our set used to be about 75 minutes, but now with the added acoustic set, the drum solo in Moby Dick, a guitar solo and an extended version of Whole Lotta Love to add to all the classics like Rock N Roll, Black Dog and Stairway To Heaven plus obscure Zeppelin like Ten Years Gone, Custard Pie and Misty Mountain Hop the entire performance can be two and a half hours long.'' Bookings can be made by calling Ticketek on 4929 1977.
