Biography

The Crunge is a Led Zeppelin Tribute Band hailing from Toronto, Ont. A lot younger than most Zeppelin, or any other Tribute acts on the road, The Crunge has much more to offer than your typical tribute.

With a focus on the first half of Zeppelin's career, the band means to portray a younger, passionate, yet even greener Zeppelin, that saw them working out new songs during Dazed and Confused and Whole Lotta Love on-stage jams. Not many other acts and can still pull off the most ball-breaking "Communication Breakdown" either, thanks to the high pitched screeches of Robert Plant.

Luckily, the Crunge's lead singer, Bronwyn Marie West, is a whole lotta female. "My range has never been this large. My skill has never been pushed this far. And I'm better for it"

Favouring B-Sides, and other accumulated cuts from Physical Graffiti that got left off previous albums, are a focus, as not many other Zep bands seem to focus on rarer and less popular tracks.

"We don't want to do Lemon Song, we'd rather do Custard Pie.... I'd rather not have to sing about my 'lemon', and neither would my brother.." jokes Bronwyn. "We favour Ten Years Gone over perfecting our Stairway too..We can't afford double guitars and organs.. we're young, we'll get there yet".

The Crunge relies on their music rather than costumes, expensive equipment, or on-stage gimmicks. Zeppelin was able to perform without any of these luxuries, and The Crunge can too. "Hell we WANT to work this way. It's raw, it's real, it's the way to go right now. This musical style will indeed follow us into our own music-making processes, when the time comes" says the band's Jimmy Page, Cam West.

To more accurately grasp the effect of The Crunge, one would have to witness their live high-energy, ever-expansive folk to rock ‘n roll show, where a beautiful whisper can easily transgress to roaring thunder. The Crunge distinguishes themselves from other tribute bands through emphasis on emulating Zep's live arrangements, which adapted the band's expansive studio sound into a loud and fast rock n' roll show, while allowing room for the softer, folk-side of Zeppelin. The resulting changes keep things interesting for the audience, whether they are newcomers or veteran Ledheads.

With a catalogue that showcases FM radio classics, choice album cuts, hard-rockers and acoustic numbers, there's a whole lot to love about The Crunge: Led Zeppelin Tribute.
