CRACK out the air guitar and let down your hair as a Led Zeppelin tribute band come to town.

Whole Lotta Led have been performing Zeppelin classics for more than 17 years and, on Saturday, the Gloucestershire-based band perform at the Plough.

Jimmy Page himself has even commented on the band, saying: “You’re getting great reviews, I wish you all the best.”

Having played major shows all around the country, Whole Lotta Led are not a lookalike tribute band but rather concentrate on replicating the iconic sound of the popular Seventies rock group.

All five members of Whole Lotta Led lived through the times of Led Zeppelin’s heyday, and all have seen the popular British rock band live, some more than once.

Not only that, but with upwards of 1,300 shows to their name, they have performed Stairway To Heaven more than any other band in the world – including Led Zeppelin themselves!

Playing more than 100 gigs a year to audiences of all ages, as well as working with The ABC Trust – a charity founded by Jimmy Page’s wife to help under privileged children in Brazil –, Whole Lotta Led can be seen as one of the hardest working tribute acts in the UK.

Expect classics such as Whole Lotta Love, Kashmir and Stairway To Heaven, as well as a selection of acoustic songs from the Zeppelin back catalogue.

Whole Lotta Led are performing at the Plough Arts Centre, Torrington on Saturday, August 23, 8pm. Tickets: £15 (full), £13 (supporter), £10 (concession). Box office: 01805 624624 or www.theploughartscentre.org.uk.
