Huntington - On March 19, tribute band Led Zeppelin 2 performed at The Paramount in Huntington, where they brought the iconic songs of Led Zeppelin to life.
Front-man Bruce Lamont (who portrayed Robert Plant) gave the welcoming remarks and began their set with "The Song Remains the Same," as red and orange lights dimmed from the stage.
"Good evening everybody," he said. "We are Led Zeppelin 2. This is our first time here. It's a wonderful place," he added, praising The Paramount.
They continued with "Nobody's Fault but Mine," which featured Lamont on harmonica, and they immediately broke into the fan-favorite "Immigrant Song."
As purple lights shined from the stage, they went on to sing "What Is and What Should Never Be," and it was followed by a deep cut, "Achilles Last Stand," which was the song that Lamont claimed as his favorite Zeppelin recording.
"Are we having a good time so far?" he asked, and the answer was a resounding "yes" from The Paramount audience. It was followed by the melodic "Thank You," where they showed their soft side (with Matthew Longbons on keyboards), and they delivered an expressive rendition of "Stairway to Heaven," which they described as "a song of hope," and it featured an awesome a cappella ending by Lamont.
The acoustic portion of their show included "That's the Way," as well as "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You," which they dedicated to the young ladies in the audience. "Dazed and Confused" was a lengthy but noteworthy jam, that included a killer guitar solo from Paul Kamp (who portrayed Jimmy Page).
"Black Dog" was an upbeat sing-along, and "Ten Years Gone" was a mellow ballad, where Lamont played the tambourine.
They continued with "Moby Dick," where Greg Fundis delivered an impressive drum solo, and it was followed by the mid-tempo yet rocking "Heartbreaker" and they closed with "How Many More Times."
"Would you like to hear another song?" Lamont asked. "How are about two more song? Cheers to you all." They returned for an encore that included "Kahmir" and "Whole Lotta Love."
The Verdict
Overall, Led Zeppelin 2 was able to put on a high-octane show at The Paramount, that is a must for all Zeppelin fans. They had the crowd with them every step of the way. Their live concert garnered an A rating.
