www.ledzeppelin2.com. I saw them in Houston last weekend. I have seen a couple cover Led Zep cover bands and I thought they were good until I saw Zep 2. You close your eyes, you think you are hearing plant back in 73. You open your eyes you think you are seeing plant from 73. All 4 band members were unbelievable. Clips are on their website.
Hard core Led Zeppelin fans know who the best Led Zeppelin cover bands are and it isn't Led Zep 2.

Kashmir, The Led Zeppelin Show, is the most authentic and accurate representation of Led Zeppelin out there today. All 4 members of the band
assume their individual roles with amazing accuracy. Kashmir brings the stage show, the sound, and likeness to bring your audience and patrons back to a day when the Mighty Led Zeppelin ruled the musical landscape. The play list of every classic rock station, the most identified voice in rock history, and the stage show including Pages bow solo, Theremin, the double neck guitar, Bonzo Drum Solo, the stage show of the era, and most importantly the greatest hits that make up the soundtrack to many people's lives. Kashmir features Jean Violet (Robert Plant) on vocals, Andy Urban (Jimmy Page) on lead guitar, Cary Fields (John Paul Jones) on bass, keys, mandolin and Paul Cooper (John "Bonzo" Bonham) on drums. Kashmir has played over 500 shows performing to crowds as large as 30,000 people and tours extensively.All 4 members look and play like zep does. Not only does the guy look and sound like plant, but their Jones plays bass, keyboards, mandolin, and uses bass pedals with his feet on the keyboard tunes. The page guy uses all the right guitars, and their bonham uses the Vistalite kit.

You must be high. I've heard high school kids cover Stairway better than that guitarist does. He should get a job cutting meat because he really butchers that solo in their demo.

Donno14,
I've also been following Get The Led Out, in my case for almost 3 years. Like you, I believe they
are the best out there. Their almost exact replications of original Zeppelin studio recordings
seems almost impossible to produce, yet they manage to do it with plenty of intensity that drives the music, and do it with great precision.
Their set list varies, and always includes plenty
of blistering hard rock, such as "Good Times, Bad
Times", "Black Dog", "Heartbreaker/Livin' Lovin' Maid", "Dazed and Confused", etc., and liberal doses of the "light and shade" Zeppelin was so well known for. They do amazing jobs with "Stairway To Heaven", "Thank You", "Ramble On","The Battle of Evermore", "The Rain Song",
"Over The Hills And Far Away", etc. I put them
ahead of the other Zep tributes, which I've seen a
couple of (both very good), because they are amazingly detail oriented, but still provide plenty
of energy and intensity. They are not the least
bit boring, and you never know (except for what they call "the obvious one") what's coming up for
the night you see them. They keyboard player,
without "cheating", reproduces all four distinctive
keyboard sounds on "In The Light", and they do
a fantastic job with the vocal harmonies and "slide" guitar sounds on "Tangerine" from the third album. They don't try to look like Led Zeppelin, but instead put an incredible amount of time and energy into mimicking the exact sounds, notes and licks from the classic albums that we
Zep fans still love.
Donno14, you picked the right band to follow. I
doubt they'll ever disappoint you, or me!

BLACK DOG from NJ is dead on Zep. Check out their web page blackdogzeppelin.com

You won't be disappointed. Hopefully Black Dog will be asked to play Zep Fest 2011

I have seen all the bands mentioned, and Black Dog sounds teh most authentic... and they don't have to resort to Cheesy gimicks...

Black Dog ROCKS, any Zep fans owes it to themselves to experience a Black Dog Show...

Led Zeppelin 2 at The House of Blues in Chicago blew my mind. It wasn't just some band covering a bunch of Zep tunes at a club, it was as close to attending a real Zeppelin concert as I'll ever get.

By the time I was old enough to go to concerts Bonzo was dead and I hate to say it but that Led Zeppelin reunion a few years ago just made me sad. Everything sounded like muzak versions. So I've seen a few Zep tribute bands over the years and by far, Led Zeppelin 2 captures all that 70's Zeppelin magic on stage.

They tour nationally, I highly recommend checking them out. www.ledzeppelin2.com

Actually that's exactly what it was - just some band covering a bunch of Zep tunes at a club.
Jason Bonham's band is great, so is Zepagain and Zepplica and GTLO and Zoso and Black Dog etc. etc. They all tour and blow peoples minds - yada yada yada.
Led Zeppelin 2 is great too and comes in at around 6th or 7th place.

Best zep tribute out there is Hammer of the Gods - WAY better than Get The Led Out, they do a real experience show instead of just trying to do the studio recreations...if I'm going to see a tribute I want the feeling that I'm at a real zep show, not just watching some guys play the music. If I wanted to just hear the studio music I'd put on the original cds.
Check out these guys: http://www.hammerofthegods.com - these guys are AWESOME!!
Omg. you are exactly right! This is exactly how I feel. I've been searching for the best LEd Zeppelin tribute, and HOTG is the BEST I have found. Sights and Sounds. They look and sound like the real deal. AmAZING

The top Led Zeppelin bands in the world have already been chosen by the hard core Zep fans and critics. What a few people say on this forum doesn't matter.

The Zep Boys are by far the best Zeppelin cover band I've seen. Check out this clip of Black Dog, performed with a symphony orchestra.

Caught Led Zepplica when I was in Honolulu last year and they were phenomenal. It was a sold out show with over a thousand people screaming after every song. One of the best live shows I have ever seen to date and I have seen many. Blew me away when they did Out On The Tiles and the singer hit every note perfectly and actually sounded like Plant.

The original post is "I have been following this awesome Led Zeppelin Tribute band called Get The Led Out for years now. You can check them out on their website at www.gtlorocks.com and get back to me with what you think of them."

I've seen every band that does Zeppelin including The Jason Bonham LZE and of them all Get The Led Out and Jason's band are by far the best. The others are fair too but not as authentic sounding.

Kashmir is performing at William Paterson University on Saturday, April 2nd but this is no ordinary "Led Zep tribute show". Kashmir is recreating one of Led Zeppelin's classic concerts recorded in Paris on April 1st 1971. It was aired on the BBC on April 4th of 1971 and later released as a two-CD set.

Some consider this show in Paris to be one of the best performances Led Zep did and Kashmir is celebrating the Paris show's 40th anniversary in the only way appropriate - live.

Tickets are on sale now - contact [email protected] ($16-$25). Come join the anniversary Led Zep party and see Kashmir (or is it Led Zep) live.

i cant grasp people wanting to go to a concert to hear a live show with "studio sound." Listen to the albums if thats what you want..i agree with geisha girl. Being in my early twenties i missed out on experiencing the rush of watching them live in the seventies. I recently had the pleasure of seeing ZoSO perform in myrtle beach and it was amazing. They had the look and feel down cold..The lead singer had plants mannerisms and voice so close it was eerie..as did the rest of the group (i rarely say Pages eyes, as his face was surrounded by long black wavy hair-very authentic) and the sound was loud and in your face. The Bonham guy looked as close to bonham as anyone ive ever seen and he played his drum solo for about 8 10 minutes straight, UNREAL..The John Paul and Plant guys doing No Quarter still gives me chills.
Do yourselves a favor and check em out

Anyway, in my opinion ZoSo or Led Zeppelin 2(also great) are the best-definitly worth seeing if you get the chance-it gave me a chance to experience what i missed out on in the seventies
