LED ZEPPELIN 2 — the ultimate Zeppelin tribute band — will head to the west coast next week where the band will continue to floor audiences with their flawless Led Zeppelin reenactment.
Far more than a typical cover band, Bruce Lamont — most widely recognized for his saxophone and vocal work fronting Chicago-based Yakuza — and his cohorts allow fans to experience Led Zeppelin as Zeppelin would have played in front of an audience. LZ2 sold-out venues across the U.S. in 2010 and the early part of 2011 and continue to draw rave reviews for a “spot-on” Zeppelin performance, playing deep cuts and classic tracks from the entire catalog, and occasionally entire Led Zeppelin performances from specific shows and sets from the band’s storied history.

Superskum.com recently conducted an interview with Lamont during their stop in Engelwood, Colorado earlier this month. Check out the interview, as well as some killer live footage below.
“Their whole performance was just spot on all night long, including double neck guitar, playing guitar with a violin bow and the occasional breaks to pour down some Whiskey to oil that throat.” — Superskum
“…the best Zep band going anywhere.” — Time Out New York
“There are a lot of Zep tributes out there, but this one’s our favorite, not least because its members fully immerse themselves in the musicianship and style of the four classic-rock heavyweights. That Yakuza howler Bruce Lamont does a mean Robert Plant is icing on the cake.” — Time Out Chicago
“…these imitators get the Led out in a way your battered copy of Physical Graffiti never will, right down to the unearthly tones of guitarist Paul Kamp’s bowed Les Paul solos. Sure, purists are still holding out for the real deal’s tour, but even if that happens, it’s doubtful that Robert Plant can wail the opening lines of ‘Black Dog’ as well as his LED ZEPPELIN 2 counterpart, Bruce Lamont,” — The Onion
“The band is on its way out of the minor leagues, and is now playing bigger venues for a generation of fans too young to have ever experienced the genuine article.” — The New Yorker
“…these guys sound fucking exactly like Led Zeppelin!” — Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett
“…the closest thing to seeing the real Led Zeppelin.” — Dallas Observer
“…such authentic raw flair, the entire crowd bought it, no questions lingering… It was nasty… hard to believe how balls-out fantastic they are.” — Atlanta’s Backstage Beat
“Bruce Lamont and Paul Kamp (of Yakuza and Busker Soundcheck fame, respectively) and the killer rhythm section of Ian Lee and Chris Klein bill themselves as LED ZEPPELIN 2, and they do as good a Zep as Zep ever did back in the day.” — The Chicago Sun Times
