FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Get the Led Out Comes to The Wilbur
WHAT: On Saturday May 30, 2015, Get the Led Out is coming to The Wilbur in Boston’s historic Theatre District.
From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. This is not an impersonator act but rather a group of musicians who were fans first, striving to do justice to one of the greatest bands in rock history.
The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians’ intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.
Dubbed by the media as “The American Led Zeppelin,” Get The Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band. The Patriot News, Central Pennsylvania’s leading news source that reaches nearly a half-million weekly readers, heralds, “Get The Led Out didn’t just pass Zeppelin 101 with flying colors — they’re working on their Ph.D. They didn’t just do their Zep homework — they’re teaching the class.”
GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and PAC venues across the country. Such venerable club venues include Penn’s Peak, Electric Factory, Best Buy Theater, HOB Boston, Fillmore Charlotte and Ram’s Head Live, Baltimore. PACs include the Sovereign Performing Arts Center, Count Basie Theater, Filene Center at Wolf Trap, Kravis Center, Durham Performing Arts Center, Lynn Memorial Theater, The Palace in Greensburg and many more. The band will make their first appearance at Red Rocks in Denver in the fall of 2014!
Get The Led Out’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless.”
A Get The Led Out concert mimics the “light and shade” that are the embodiment of “The Mighty Zep.” Whether it’s the passion and fury with which they deliver the blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems, it’s their attention to detail and nuance that makes a Get The Led Out performance a truly awe-inspiring event!
