There are few tribute bands that really hit the nail on the head when it comes to the original band they are covering and honoring. Zoso just so happens to be one of them. For the past 25 years, this band has honed in on their craft, continuing to study the talent and style of Led Zeppelin and create an experience that is as enjoyable, immersive, and authentic as possible. They have taken the golden era of music to heart, embodied the likelihood of Plant, Page, Bonham, and Jones, and crafted an act out of it—one that Zeppelin fans new and old can appreciate. They’re heading to Brooklyn Bowl on Jan. 2 and tickets can be found at zosoontour.com.
Bumblefoot at Dingbatz
From Guns N’ Roses to Asia, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal has surely made his mark on rock ‘n’ roll. Since he first burst onto the music scene in the early eighties, electric guitar in hand, the rocker had a following. Growing up in Brooklyn, being inspired by KISS, and playing in rock shows and competing in music contests really did prepare him for a generation-spanning career in music. There’s a magic in his musicianship, his voice and guitar blending perfectly to create a hard rock sound that is distinct, impressive, and mesmerizing. Talent oozes out of Bumblefoot and you can see that for yourself at Dingbatz in Clifton, NJ on Jan. 4. For tickets, visit ticketweb.com.
