Tribute bands are all the rage these days, and Led Zep tribute bands are at the top of the heap. Already this year we’ve seen Get the Led Out (the Palace Theatre, 2/6/15) and Hammer of the Gods (The Egg, 3/7/15) roll into Nippertown concert venues, and there are more on the way, of course, including Zepperella at Mountain Jam (6/5/15), Led Zeppelin 2 at SPAC (8/1/15) and Zoso at Troy’s Rockin’ On the River concert series (8/12/15).

So what makes Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience stand out from the pack?

Well, of course, his dad was, in fact, Led Zeppelin’s drummer John Bonham. And Jason has played a handful of gigs with the surviving Zep members.

And maybe that’s enough…
