LEZ ZEPPELIN. All Girls. All Zeppelin
The 10th Anniversary
With Support:  Screaming Eagles

"They played the Led Zeppelin music with an extraordinary sensuality and an energy and passion that highlighted their superb musicianship."
Jimmy Page

Led by New York guitarist, Steph Paynes, the all-girl quartet, LEZ ZEPPELIN, has since gained unanimous critical acclaim as one of the most exciting live acts around, becoming the first female rock act to pay homage to Led Zeppelin and to garner rave reviews across the board.

LEZ ZEPPELIN stays true to the musically audacious spirit of the original, delivering the legendary rock band's blistering arrangements and monstrous sound note-for-note at sold-out frenzied shows around the world.

In June, 2013, Jimmy Page attended their show in London and said of the group, "They played the Led Zeppelin music with an extraordinary sensuality and an energy and passion that highlighted their superb musicianship."

The thing that sets LEZ ZEPPELIN apart is the seamless and unique way they inject their gender-bending performance into the original material. They have been featured on major television including the BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, MTV, VH-1, FOX and radio worldwide.
The group's first studio album was produced by legendary producer/engineer, Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix).

SPIN Magazine called them "the most powerful all-female band in rock history" while the New York Times raved that: "Strapping on the double-necked Gibson with attitude to burn, this all-girl quartet pays tribute to its swaggering namesake Led Zeppelin, ripping through the catalog with blazing accuracy."

Bob Stanley of The Times hailed, "they are the best band I've seen all year, no question,"
and CNN recently ran a front page feature that called the group so "electrifying" they are"driving club audiences to a frenzy."
For those sceptics who still dare to ask:

Can four women pull off the exuberant, powerful and musically intricate performances for which Led Zeppelin are known, a LEZ ZEPPELIN show is nothing short of a revelation.

"Best Tribute Band in the World: Lez Zeppelin. The parallel universe genius of Lez Zeppelin, the sass-stacked all woman band toured the world, slayed it, and recorded an album with Led Zep's producer Eddie Kramer. We know whom John Bonham would have been rooting for.
The Guardian, London
"What Lez Zeppelin has done is taken their talent and wrapped it around one of the most classic of the classics, Led Zeppelin I. Their attention to sounds in the studio, energy, and playing has put them as one of the first to capture the overall vibe of the original. I have never heard it done better."
Joe Perry, Aerosmith
"After a single listen to their music, it's obvious Lez Zeppelin has a tremendous amount of love and respect for Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's Led Zeppelin. Lez Zeppelin are great musicians.  And then some."
Time Out
"The girls score points for taking the entire first Zep album and recreating it, musically. Guitarist Steph Paynes does an amazing job recreating Jimmy Page. We are talking the real deal..."
