Whole Lotta Led get ready to rock Leiston Film Theatre

Unlike the majority of bands on the tribute circuit, Whole Lotta Led are a sound-a-like, as opposed to a look-a-like tribute band. They believe that the music comes first and wearing wigs and costumes can distract from what they are trying to achieve - which is to play some of the best music ever written.

Whole Lotta Led were originally formed as No Quarter in 1993, playing a wide variety of rock standards, original compositions as well as the odd Led Zeppelin number.

Audience reaction to the Led Zeppelin material in their set was such that in January 1996 the band decided to play exclusively Led Zeppelin numbers and changed their name to WHOLE LOTTA LED.

Originally playing local clubs and pubs, the band soon progressed to the major rock venues (some of which Led Zeppelin themselves played) touring all over the UK and Europe.

With the band becoming increasingly in demand, Whole Lotta Led turned professional in January 2001, thus becoming the UK's ONLY full time tribute to Led Zeppelin and are now considered
by many to be one of the UK's top tribute bands.

WHOLE LOTTA LED regularly play two and a half hour sets and perform approximately 100 concerts a year to enthusiastic crowds.

New generations are continually getting involved in the Led Zeppelin experience. Audiences at WHOLE LOTTA LED gigs can span four generations from six to sixty and for most it is the first opportunity of seeing and hearing Led Zeppelin's music performed live.

The bands aim is to reproduce the classic Zep songs with the same enthusiasm, excitement and passion that the original band created.

The band have also been very active in raising funds for The ABC Trust, a charity founded by Jimmy Page's wife to help under privileged children in Brazil. The involvement with the charity eventually led to a meeting with Led Zeppelin's legendary guitarist Jimmy Page, who has given the band his blessing and wished them all the best.

WHOLE LOTTA LED are appearing at Leiston Film Theatre on Saturday 11th December, at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced 12.50 and are available from the Leiston Film Theatre box office, or by clicking here.
