JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE LIFTS OFF:NEW FOOTAGE ADDED!

11 October 2010 4,111 views 5 Comments

The first night of Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience kicked off at the Encana Events Centre in Dawsons Creek, British Columbia on the 8th October with an inspiring set list of Zeppelin classic that featured Immigrant Song, Celebration Day, I Can’t Quit You, Your Time is Gonna Come, Babe I’m Gonna Leave You, Dazed And Confused, Lemon Song, Thank You, Moby Dick. Friends, Since I’ve Been Loving You, Black Dog, Ocean, Song Remains the Same, I’m Gonna Crawl, When The Levee Breaks, Stairway To Heaven, Kashmir, Whole Lotta Love and Rock & Roll.

Joining Jason on stage was James Dylan on vocals, Tony Catania on guitar, Stephen LeBlanc on Guitar, Lap Steel, Keys and Michael Devin on bass.

The whole performance was interspersed with private family footage and John performing with Led Zeppelin on huge video screens. Jason also got to play alongside his father on Moby Dick and When The Levee Breaks via the screens. Other highlights also included I’m Gonna Crawl, Your Time Is Gonna Come and The Ocean. Adding a narrative between songs, a sometimes emotional Jason fulfilled his  dream of showcasing not only the world’s greatest drummer but also his father.

Here is a short sample.

The tour continues  across America in the coming weeks and if you are  attending any of the shows we welcome your  reviews and photos  for use on the TBL site -send to  garyfoy@live.co.uk

Thanks to Terry S for the info.

    As a lifelong Zep fanatic, I was slightly shocked at how perfectly the music has been recreated. Really incredible. Its obvious all the musicians love Zeppelin’s music and have spent many many hours and days practicing to get it right. The sound seems to have been perfectly replicated which is not easy. Congratulations Jason on performing a beautiful tribute to your Dad and his band!!

    Saw the show last night in Calgary. Excellent performance by the band.

    The way the tunes were executed exhibited that the musicians Jason has picked for these shows, have a true love for the music of Zeppelin. I also appreciated the fact that they were not dressed to resemble Zep in any way shape or form, which would have added a cheesy element to the proceedings.

    Tony Catania impressed on the guitar. playing with both precision and passion, while James Dylan nailed the vocals spot on. Michael Devin on bass locked in nicely with Jason to keep the engine room running smooth and powerful, while Stephen LeBlanc added great fills with keys, steel guitar.

    Jason of course was Jason..fantastic.

    It appeared to me that Jason’s motives are extremely heartfelt and personal…and I for one, salute him for that. I would recommend attending should they come to your neck of the woods, you will not be disapointed
