The Song Remains the Same – A tribute to Led Zeppelin
The perennial popularity of 70’s supergroup Led Zeppelin continues as Centrestage presents ‘The Song Remains the Same – A tribute to Led Zeppelin’ for two nights at the Music Kitchen on 16 and 17 July.
The show will be fronted by long-time Zeppelin fan and dynamic front-man Cedric Vandenschrik in the role of Robert Plant, along with Centrestage’s previous musical director Donovan Hattingh, back from Dubai for a short stint, as Jimmy Page.
“Every blue moon when Donovan , Joe van der Linden, Lloyd Martin and myself find ourselves in the same geographical location, the first question on everybody’s lips is always… are we going to do the Led Zeppelin show again?”, enthused Vandenschrik.
“Well it seems that the time has come again to dust off the violin bow, take out the mandolin and crank the volume up a notch!”
“Our formidable foursome will indeed be getting together to pay tribute to one of the most successful, innovative, and influential rock groups in history, a group which has sold between 200 and 300 million albums.”
In the past, Cedric, Donovan, Joe and Lloyd have literally “rocked” PE’s crowds with songs like “Stairway to heaven”, “Black dog”, “Whole lotta love”, “Kashnmir”, “Immigrant song”, “Good Times”…
The band also meanders into the more acoustic sounds of Led Zeppelin, also delving into the strong blues influence of the group with such classics as “Since I’ve been loving you” “I can’t quit you babe” “Going to California”
“Using its playing talent to the max, instruments are often traded (sometimes in mid song!), with Donovan Hattingh playing electric guitar and keyboards, Joe van der Linden on bass and electric guitar, with myself on vocals and acoustic guitar” continues Cedric.
If you love the music of Led Zeppelin, if you like rock music, if you like a good live band, you simply cannot miss “The song remains the Same”.
The shows will start at 7.30pm. Tickets are R130 per person or R120 per person when booking six or more and can be booked by calling Wendy on 082 661 6921.
