If you like Led Zepagain, consider:
Led Zepagain takes their audience to a place that not only replicates a Led Zeppelin concert, but captures the heart and soul of the world's greatest band.
A Led Zepagain show features all of the Zeppelin highlights, from the high-energy electric classics, to the beautiful acoustic works; from the soaring leads on the double-neck guitar, to the brilliant keyboard passages, and from the high, Robert Plant screams, to the trademark pounding rhythms. From the moment Led Zepagain hits the stage, you'll believe, this is definitely the “Real Deal!”
Swan Montgomery, Vocals, Harmonica
Born in Drogheda, Ireland, David Swan Montgomery is an Irish entrepreneur, musician, vocalist and producer/engineer most notable as the lead singer of internationally successful tribute band “Led Zepagain.” Montgomery is the voice of “Robert Plant” and has helped with the continued the success of Led Zepagain which was founded twenty years ago in Ventura, California by Tracy Longo.

Jim Wootten, Bass, Keyboards , Mandolin, Guitar, Vocals
Led Zepagain multi-instrumentalist Jim Wootten comes from a very musical family that bred many professional musicians, most notably, his father Red Wootten who played bass with Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman and Woody Herman to name a few, and his uncle and aunt, world renown recording artists Les Paul and Mary Ford who had 16 top ten hits in the 1950’s. “I feel extremely blessed to have grown up in a family that was so musically inclined. It instilled in me a love for music and inspired me to pursue my own dream of becoming a professional musician. Jim’s hallmark is his attention to detail and has played in avariety of original and cover bands over the years, mainly concentrating on tribute bands over the last 13 years.“ I particularly enjoy playing in tribute bands because of the challenge of trying to replicate an artist’s music with note for note accuracy.” Jim fills the demanding role of John Paul Jones masterfully; covering bass, keyboards, mandolin, bass pedals, acoustic 6 & 12 string guitars and backing vocals. Jim’s other tribute projects include the popular southern California tributes The Long Run “Experience the Eagles” and 4 Way Street “Celebrating the Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young”.
Jim Kersey, Drums and Percussion.
With his amazing feel for the late, great,John "Bonzo" Bonham, drummer Jim Kersey leaves audiences shouting for more, especially after every performance of Zeppelin`s classic drum solo epic "Moby Dick". A highly-accomplished drummer, Jim has performed, and/or recorded with Vivian Campbell (Dio,Def Leppard), Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, James Cotton, Coco Montoya, B.B.Chung King, the Mamas and the Papas, and the James Montgomery Band, to name just a few. He received his degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and has studied drums and percussion with Carmine Appice, Gary Chaffee, and legendary drummer, Joe Porcaro. Jim is also an in-demand session drummer, and recently recorded tracks for Joe Porcaro`s new book/cd, "Drumset Method" Grooving with Rudiments, published by Hal Leonard Company.
We are honored and privileged to have Christian Nesmith (son of famous Monkees guitar player Michael Nesmith) on lead guitar in the Jimmy Page role who will be performing with us in Jan. Christian is not only a masterful musician but a very knowledgeable student of the music of Led Zeppelin. By his own admission, it was after watching Jimmy Page in the Led Zeppelin live concert movie “The Song Remains the Same” that he decided to settle on guitar as his main instrument. After having studied Page intently from the age of 13, he has become acutely aware of his tone and playing style to the point that it has greatly influenced and inspired him to be the musician he is today. Christian toured with Air Supply in 2011 and just finished touring with The Monkees reunion in Nov 2012.
