Zepparella ~ “Dazed and Confused”
Zepparella will return to the Miners Foundry on Friday, June 13, 2014, presented by the Miners Foundry. Zepparella is an all-girl powerhouse from San Francisco, featuring the music of Led Zeppelin. More than just a tribute band, Zepparella shows replicate the powerful improvisational musical journey for which Led Zeppelin shows were renowned.
Doors open at 8:00 p.m. and the music starts at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $20.00 in Advance and $25.00 at the door. Tickets are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, (530) 265-5040, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.
In 8 years as a band, Zepparella has released two live albums and toured throughout the United States opening for the likes of Weezer, Kiss, and Y&T. Band members Gretchen Menn (guitar) and Angeline Saris (bass) are known internationally for their playing and have graced numerous festival stages, private parties, theatres, and down and dirty rock venues.
How to honor the legacy of a band deemed sacred? To tread on holy ground is perilous and must be done with the intent and spirit of a disciple. Pat attention to the intricacies of the magic, explore the far ends of the innovation, strive for ever-growing ability, and let the purity of the love for the music drive it all. It wasn’t that long ago women rock musicians were a rare breed. They might sign up front, or as part of a girl group, but women weren’t often seen playing rhythm or lead guitar. Times have changed.
