Micheal White & The White with their Orchestral Zeppelin project is a fascinating to say the least! The adulation from this group for that Zeppelin sound shows everyone the depth of love that they have for this great band. Having the drive and skill to pull off something like this makes one’s blood cold with excitement!
They were the first band ever to call themselves a ‘tribute’ and have performed over 4000 shows to over 3 million fans around the world. Even Jimmy Page himself commented to me in 1985 that “Michael does it best”.
The White is considered to be first act to be known as a true Led Zeppelin Tribute Band and the rest is history.
I think that I’ve heard about this band for a while now but I never really paid that much attention to them until today.
While driving home from the store I came across a commercial on the radio, promoting the bands next show in Toronto at the Sound Academy.
So I thought that I’d give you a heads up about these guys and I’d love to see them sometime … anyone out there got some free tickets for yours truly?!
If anyone is interested in going to the show here is the info.
Q107 the radio station that I was listening to at the time is presenting Michael White’s ORCHESTRAL ZEPPELIN featuring the Symphony Of Rock Youth Orchestra on Sat Jan 16, 2010. Doors are open at 8pm and TICKETS are $20 IN ADVANCE and $25 AT DOOR.
Keep on Jammin’ Micheal White & The White!
