"You can expect to be taken on a journey back in time," says Raff Achour, the bands Jimmy Page. "Boot-Led-Zeppelin's aim is to recapture the magic and excitement of a Led Zeppelin concert from the early 70s.
They played their first gig in 2001. Since then, they’ve been playing venues all over the UK, building up their circuit. They now perform at some prestigious venues such as the Cambridge Corn Exchange and London’s Shepherds Bush Empire, putting on electrifying shows that take their audiences on a journey back in time.
When Zeppelin reformed for their 02 show in December 2007, Boot-Led- Zeppelin had the honour of being invited by Sky TV to play an acoustic set at the venue, on the day of the show. And, as if that wasn't enough, they were also chosen to represent Led Zeppelin on the BBC series I'm In a Rock n' Roll Band, when Zeppelin were voted Britain's favourite band.
The sad fact is that a full Led Zep reunion won't be happening any time soon, but we still have the records and, for when that just won't do it, we have Boot-Led-Zeppelin.
Boot Led Zeppelin
Boot-Led-Zeppelin offers the definitive tribute to one of the world’s most legendary rock bands, Led Zeppelin.
Excess? Check. Infamy? Check. Deals with the devil? Maybe. But as much as intrigue and mystery still surrounds the band, it is, and always has been, secondary to the stunning body of work Led Zeppelin produced between 1968 and 1980. Their influence can be heard today in countless bands the world over, yet they remain the ultimate band people want but can't have.
Which brings us to Boot-Led-Zeppelin……….Capturing the magic and excitement of Zeppelin’s concerts from the 70s, the band faithfully perform their classic songs, from mellow acoustic tracks such as Going To California and That’s The Way, to epics such as Whole Lotta Love, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Kashmir and Stairway To Heaven.
Boot-Led-Zeppelin are about as close as you can get to the real thing. Every last detail is taken care of. The right hair, the right clothes, Raff's Marshall amps bearing the infamous "Zoso" symbol and stage performances that are uncanny.
They play faithful, spot-on renditions of songs they obviously love and respect. In fact they are so accurate that you half expect to see the hulking figure of Peter Grant walking around making sure everything is in check……
