What is the result when strings are added to “Stairway to Heaven”? Answer – Symphony to Heaven. On occasion LED ZEPPELIN would perform and record with a string section adding a completely new dimension to an already awesome repertoire. For this incredible evening turn back the clock, remember or discover anew all that was LED ZEPPELIN. Capturing the heart and soul of “the world’s greatest band”, LED ZEPAGAIN will be joined by the Vancouver Island Symphony String Quartet, replicating the ultimate LED ZEPPELIN experience.

From the high energy electric classics to the beautiful acoustic works, you will be mesmerized as LED ZEPAGAIN resurrects Page’s soaring guitar leads, Jones’ brilliant keyboard passages, Bonham’s trademark pounding rhythms and the signature Robert Plant vocals. Jimmy Page says, “It’s as close as you’ll ever get to the real deal”. As you experience the immortal classics “Stairway to Heaven”, “Immigrant Song”, “Whole Lotta Love” “Rock ‘n’ Roll” and “Black Dog”, you’ll believe Jimmy Page is right; LED ZEPAGAIN is definitely “as close as you’ll ever get to the real deal!”

Hot from a 2011 tour with AIR SUPPLY, Christian Nesmith rocks the lead guitar in the Jimmy Page role. The son of MONKEES guitarist Michael Nesmith, music is in the blood of this master musician and intense student of LED ZEPPELIN and specifically Jimmy Page. From the tender age of 13, driven by seeing Page in the Zeppelin movie “The Song Remains the Same”, Christian has mastered the sound, the tone and the style that has defined him as the rock hero he is today. You simply must see this amazing reproduction of the famous front man of a legendary band.

Born in Ireland and raised on Rock n Roll, lead singer David “Swan” Montgomery delivers an uncanny portrayal of Robert Plant. Recently Swan was pulled on stage by Roger Daltry for a duet rendition of “Help From My Friends”. Roger even commented on how much Swan looked like Robert Plant! He’s even lent his voice to numerous recordings, including the widely released Witchblade Soundtrack, which featured such artists as G. Tom Mac and Roger Daltry.

Completing this outstanding crew are Jim Wootten, nephew of legendary guitarist Les Paul filling the demanding role of John Paul Jones and master percussionist Jim Kersey who leaves audiences shouting for more after every performance of Zeppelin’s epic drum solo, “Moby Dick!”
