"The Houses of the Holy Rise Again"

Most tribute acts seem to do their best to re-create the music and stage persona of their particular choice of tribute, but one Led Zeppelin tribute goes beyond just playing the music, and donning costumes and wigs. Swan Song - A Tribute to Led Zeppelin from Dallas, Texas is one of those rare breeds who actually reproduce a live performance akin to what one would expect to experience from the original supergroup in their hayday - an organic, raw, living tribute that captures the very soul and spontaneity of the original members. It truly was like experiencing Led Zeppelin live once again. Eddy Tate's remarkable vocal skills and Craig Zerba's uncanny guitar playing, coupled with both gentlemen's on-the-mark impersonations of Plant and Page's gestures on stage, bring the magic of the psychedelic blues back like a proverbial time machine. (What's even more uncanny is the fact that Tate's birthday is merely four days after Plant's, and Zerba's birthday is the very same day as Page!) Supporting the two frontmen are Dan Mutchler on drums and Kirk Young on bass - both highly proficient musicians who add their touch of nostalgia to the mix. In all, a highly recommended experience for diehard Zeppelin fans and classic rock aficionados alike. Visit them online at www.swan-song.net.

"The barometer of a very good tribute..."

The barometer of a very good tribute band is when you can close your eyes and get two strong emotion experiences when you hear them play live. #1 You get the feel and sound of the original band. #2 You get a fresh perspective and a current vibe even though it's a classic song. Swan Song achieves both of these!

"Swan Song was dead on..."

Swan Song was dead on Saturday night. This is as well rehearsed a band as I have ever heard. Great show.... Stage presence enough for everyone there... and a superb ability to interact with the audience... and babydoll, could they sell beer. Now that's what I'm talking about.

Bio

SWAN SONG is the premier Led Zeppelin tribute of Texas, bringing back all of the original band's tricks and tools with surprising accuracy. Just close your eyes and you'll be beamed back in time with the incredible replication of Led Zeppelin's music. From the loud guitars and screaming theremin in "Whole Lotta Love" to the bow-playing wizardry of "Dazed And Confused" to the soft-and-sweet acoustics of "That's The Way," Swan Song brings it all back, just for you!

Swan Song has taken a great deal of pride in looking and sounding as close to Led Zeppelin as possible, while adding a select handful of live-version performances and acoustic renditions to their repertoire. The band is available for booking year 'round at corporate events, private parties, nightclubs, sports bars, restaurants, festivals, and more. Contact us for more info.
