Thurs. June 25
The Music Farm flashed back to the '70s last Thursday night with ZoSo, the "Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience." Having never seen ZoSo before, I didn't know whether to expect tasteless renditions of popular Zeppelin songs or an exacting performance that would reflect the '70s, especially since the venue was less than packed. It was definitely the latter. ZoSo laid down the perfect tribute, with a beautiful blend of popular Zep hits, like "Whole Lotta Love" and "Stairway to Heaven," along with some treats for real fans, like "No Quarter" and "D'yer Mak'er." Besides displaying a near-exact replica of Led Zeppelin's music, each member dressed the part down to the teeth. Guitarist Mike Morgan even pulled out a double-neck Gibson guitar in true Jimmy Page fashion. Morgan also delivered a few nerve-snapping guitar solos, and drummer Greg Thompson displayed some Bonham-esque drum solos of his own. Stumbling into the Farm on Thursday could have made anyone's night as ZoSo paid a perfect tribute to arguably the greatest rock band of all time.
