Great news rock fans! There’s a Led Zeppelin Tribute Show happening at the Good Luck Bar on the 5th of November 2017! I’ve been a huge Led Zeppelin fan since high school and the rock fan inside me is very excited about this.
To quote Robert Plant: “Music is for every single person that walks the planet.” Plant is rumoured to sometimes sing notes only dogs can hear, while Jimmy Page’s shredding skills have inspired generations to pick up an axe and start practicing. Who better to pull off the ultimate tribute show to Led Zeppelin than an all star line-up at The Good Luck Bar this November, featuring some of SA’s biggest Rock ’n Roll legends!
Join them as they pay tribute to one of the greatest rock bands of all time. For one night only, some of SA’s finest will be adding their take to your Led Zeppelin favourites.
Initiated by Jason Oosthuizen (Punk ’n Roll, Lost & Found, Van Coke Kartel), it has always been his dream to do a tribute to this legendary band. Growing up with a dad who played in rock bands, Led Zeppelin was always a favourite for him. He has always been hesitant doing a tribute due to it being one of the hardest bands to pull off musically and vocally.
After months of throwing ideas around, he called up his desired line-up who were all up for the challenge in a second. Now, on 5 November – fans can see the ultimate line-up pay tribute to one of the greatest bands of all time!
“Led Zeppelin is one of the main reasons I play the way I do today, so paying tribute to them was my ultimate goal, combined with people who feel the same way. I feel we 100% the perfect line-up to pay this iconic band justice.” Jason Oosthuizen (who will be playing drums)
“Led Zeppelin is one of the very few bands that’s stood the test of time. Their music, their recordings and their performances have influenced so many rock bands. Paying tribute to them was a no-brainer for me. They played a huge role in my development as a musician so getting completely immersed in their world is a dream come true. It is an honour, and a seriously daunting challenge to even attempt to emulate Robert Plant’s vocals.” Martin Cito Otto from Wonderboom (who will be on lead vocals).
“Led Zeppelin were musical geniuses way ahead of their time. It’s a serious honour to be part of this event, the musicians in this band are insanely talented.” Neil Breytenbach from Prime Circle (who will be on keyboards).
“Led Zeppelin is one of the most important bands in my life. To be able to pay tribute to them is an absolute honour. One night Jason and I saw Cito singing ‘Rock ’n Roll’; we looked at each other and decided it was time to do a tribute. The other members in the band also make it very appealing. I just know it’s going to be an incredible show.” Chris Van Der Walt from the Black Cat Bones (who will be on bass)
“It’s a huge honour to do this show; I’ve wanted to be a part of a proper rock tribute show for Led Zeppelin for quite a while now and to pull it off with the incredible line-up of musicians in this band is just so awesome.I’ve always been a big fan of the band and that era of rock ’n roll music in general and I get to play their music live, on stage – I mean who wouldn’t want to do that?” Werner Bosman (who will be on guitar).
