Sunday 15th august Evolution Stage – fred zeppelin
About Fred Zeppelin
2021 marks Fred Zeppelins 28th year together. During their time together they have had the honour of Led Zeppelin’s front-man Robert Plant attending three of their gigs and John Bonham’s son Jason even jammed with them on stage.
These things the band are very proud of. It must surely also be the best recommendation any band could receive, and also assure any Led Zeppelin fans apprehensive about seeing The Fredz.
According to one of Kerrangs readers polls. Fred Zeppelin are among the top ten best live bands to see. Quite an achievement, as they were the only tribute band listed in any category.
You don’t know who could be standing next to you either as in the audience at previous gigs have been Magnum’s front-man Bob Catley, Whitesnake’s guitarist Mel Galley. Roy Wood legendary main man of The Move & Wizzard, and Slades Jimmy Lea was the latest rock celebrity to experience a two-hour Fred Zeppelin gig.
Fred Zeppelin were invited by Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page to attend a charity event of which Jimmy is a patron. They were thrilled to meet and chat with the legendary guitarist. Also at the party were Roger Daltrey, Julian Lloyd Webber, Leo Sayer and Formula One’s David Coulthard. What a night !!
Do you remember petuli oil, cheesecloth, tie-dye T-shirts, desert boots, loons and tank tops. Do you still wear them?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, the chances are you must be the proud owner of at least one Led Zeppelin album.
Let ‘THE FREDS’ take you back in time to those heady days of flower power, Kevin Keegan perms, flared jeans so wide it took two paces before they moved, and shirt collars long enough to tuck into your under-pants.
Dust down the afghan, light up the joss sticks and let ‘FRED ZEPPELIN’ re-create the atmosphere of that great era by playing all the classic tunes of the greatest rock band ever ‘LED ZEPPELIN’.
Wrinkle Rock Lives!
Fred Zeppelin are real fans and formed ‘The Freds’ out of their admiration ]and love of Led Zeppelin’s music. As their name the band do not take themselves too seriously, they know the praise belongs to Robert, Jimmy, John Paul Jones, and Bonzo.
The Fredz will still continue with their tradition of honouring the music of Led Zeppelin and not dressing up.
A firm favourite of Lichfield Arts, Fred Zeppelin often appear at the Lichfield Guildhall as part of our wider concert programme. What better way to bring Fuse to a close on Sunday evening than to rock out with the Fredz on the Evolution Stage!
