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.

HYPNOTIC WILLIE

HYPNOTIC WILLIE

Hypnotic Willie is a unique musical group located in Northern Virginia, that performs feel-good rock, soul, blues and Americana, playing covers of well-loved, classic tunes and a wide selection lesser-known jewels. The Willie crew is a five piece group consisting of lead guitar, vox/rhythm guitar, bass guitar, vox/harmonica/percussion and vox/box drum. While we carry a full band sound, we do not rely on a traditional drum kit. This gives the group a special sound. This unique configuration allows our performance to be tailored for large spaces or intimate settings and allows us to play in configurations and styles along the electric <=> acoustic continuum. Their music appeals to a wide range of audiences and works across a broad range of venues.
