FALL SEASON SHOW DESCRIPTIONS
MONDAY 4:30PM - 6:45PM
What the Beatles were to the '60s, Led Zeppelin was to the '70s: a band so innovative they wound up creating the definition of rock music that still holds true today. Zeppelin ushered in the era of album rock and arena rock. Other bands played on a similar field but Led Zeppelin carried a unique mystique cultivated by their album art, image, live show , and, of course, their music. Drawing upon electric blues, early rock & roll, and psychedelia, Led Zeppelin created a titanic sound. Underneath the epic guitar riffs, soaring vocals and crushing grooves there was a strong undercurrent of folk-rock, world music, funk, country and synthesizers creating an adventurous body of work that had a long, lasting influence on hard rock, heavy metal, and alternative rock.
