NEWTON, NJ – Kashmir brings the Led Zeppelin experience to The Newton Theatre on Saturday, March 26, 2016 at 8:00 pm. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 8th at 10:00 am.
Iconic 70s band Led Zeppelin may have disbanded long ago, but the excitement and energy of their live shows lives on with Kashmir! In an explosive, high-energy rock concert Kashmir recreates the sound, likeness and experience of classic Led Zeppelin, unlike any since Robert Plant and Jimmy Page shared the stage!
In an authentic representation of Led Zeppelin each of the four Kashmire band members assume their individual roles with pinpoint accuracy. The show features the sound-alike of the most identifiable voice in rock history, Page’s iconic double-neck guitar, Bonham’s drum solo, the stage show of the era, and most importantly, the greatest classic masterpieces of rock history.
With this combination of talented musicians, lead vocalist Jean Violet on harp, Andy Urban on guitar and theremin, Paul Cooper on drums and Felix Hanemann (formerly of the multi-platinum band Zebra) on bass and keyboards, Kashmir has evolved into the “well-oiled machine”.
Urban, wearing Jimmy Page’s signature dragon suit, dazzles with a bow solo in Dazed and Confused and the hypnotic use of the Theramin during Whole Lotta Love. Paul Cooper hammers out drummer John Bonham’s familiar rhythms including an authentic version of Moby Dick. Jean Violet’s dynamic vocal range and striking resemblance to Robert Plant completes the experience. Singing hits such as Rock n Roll,Ramble On and Stairway To Heaven, Jean demonstrates his vocal versatility with the same strength and subtleties that set Robert Plant and Led Zeppelin as the standard for bands to come.
For those who wish to experience a live Led Zeppelin show, dream no more—Kashmir will fit the bill, hitting every stop along the way, leaving you thirsty for more!
