JULIA KASDORF

After years of performance being a bass sideman, and co-fronting popular Loudoun County, Virginia band, One Horse Town, Julia Kasdorf gives us her solo album, “Motel”. The 11 (8 original, 3 covers) acoustic guitar-driven songs show how deep and wide Julia’s musical experience has been. Solidly Americana, with gleams of Motown, “Motel” shows us what its like to grow up loving rock ‘n roll in a bluegrass household.

Recorded over the course of a year at studio in the woods, “Motel” pulls together everything that Julia loves about music – flat top guitar, driving rhythm, a little soul, and visceral songwriting. Julia produced her own album and invited local legends Jon Carroll, Lynn Kasdorf on pedal steel, Mike Ault, Buddy Dunlap, and Gary Ferguson to help bring her sound to the acetate. “Somethings didn’t quite work out, and I painted myself into a couple of corners. There were times when I absolutely didn’t know what to do and wished like heck I had a producer to tell me!” she acknowledges “but I picked the right musicians and “Motel” kicks *ss, just like I wanted it to.”

Julia feared that the weak point of the album might be her singing. With the help of Les “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band” Thompson, she got away from the kind of pushy delivery she’d developed playing live shows, and found a way to just let the words slip out like honey. Julia was surprised and gratified by the results, having unexpectedly discovered a new gentle subtlety in her voice. “I knew that in the process of making “Motel” I’d learn a lot about myself, about what I wanted to say, about how I wanted to say it. After all the music I’ve learned and absorbed over the years, I thought something pretty cool might happen.”

ZEPPELIN & COMPANY
Oct 12 @ 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm
ZEPPELIN & COMPANY

In January of 1974 Led Zeppelin and manager Peter Grant conceived Swan Song Records. Partially because their contract with Atlantic Records had expired at the end of 1973, but also to provide a conduit for other acts to record albums without having to deal with all the red tape that was inevitable with the large record labels.

Bad Company had also just formed in 1973, and lead singer and front man Paul Rodgers was searching for a management company. Through the mutual connection of former Free road manager Clive Coulson, a connection was made that would forever tie Led Zeppelin and Bad Company together.

And by June of 1974 the first band to release an album on Swan Song Records was Bad Company. Through the height of the 70’s and into the early 80’s both bands were managed by Peter Grant. All told both bands would eventually release a combined 11 albums under the label.

The band Shooting Star was conceived out of a desire to form a tribute band that would pay homage to Bad Company. There seemed to be lack of attention paid to a band that had achieved such greatness throughout the 70’s. It was quickly evident that Bad Company’s library of hits was simply not large enough to pull off a typical 4 hour performance required of cover/tribute bands.

After some soul searching the idea was hatched to morph Shooting Star into a Bad Company/Led Zeppelin tribute band. That idea has since been very popular with the crowds, and subsequently due to the overwhelming popularity of the Zepp songs, the band name was changed to Zeppelin & Company.

Zeppelin & Company is on their way to becoming one of the premiere tribute bands in the MD/DC area by combining the songs of two legendary bands into one show. Do not miss a chance to see this band.
