The spirit of Led Zeppelin remains, and many continue to try to conjure it.

The mountaintop peak of classic rock bands is indisputably Led Zeppelin. With a catalog featuring some of the most revered songs in history ever to ring from speakers, its songs combine the band’s unique tapestry of influences and sounds. From propulsive driving rock to wistful and gentle acoustics, spanning the raw lust of rock and roll and the worlds of fantasy and the occult. Led Zeppelin was a creative union never to be matched.

ZEP-LA, a powerful recreation of Zeppelin’s catalog, has its roots in the very origins of Led Zeppelin tribute bands. It arises out of a desire by some of LA’s top session musicians to capture the intangible essence of the legendary band. A labor of love and a true love letter to the fans who still believe in Led Zeppelin’s enduring magnetism.

Vocalist Paulie Z channels the wailing, haunting vocals of prototypical frontman Robert Plant. Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, he led his own band ZO2 through a tour with rock heavyweights KISS and Poison, a band which was also chronicled in the IFC comedy series “Z Rock.” Paulie was also personally recruited to sing another legendary catalog with UK glam rockers Sweet.

Guitarist Steve Zukowsky is a founder of the original Led Zeppelin tribute sensation Led Zepagain, which resonated with widespread audiences aching for a true Zeppelin experience. He would return to explore the guitar wizardry of Jimmy Page in Zeppelin USA and Acoustic Graffiti. Veteran tribute band royalty, Steve was also a finalist for the official Queen tribute band Queen Extravaganza and has played in well-known tributes to Pink Floyd, Heart, The Rolling Stones, and David Bowie as well as Queen.

Born in Buffalo, New York, drummer Glenn Jost began in the New York City village scene and worked for renowned Grammy-winning engineer Bob Ludwig. He then carved a niche with eclectic work at the Playboy Jazz Festival and in the house bands of FOX‘s hit TV Series “Ally McBeal” and the Broadway hit “Dreamgirls.”

Canadian-born and Los Angeles-raised bassist Aaron Samson landed himself on the RCA Records roster early on. A protege of legendary composer David Foster, Aaron has played with various LA bands as well as rock heroes like George Lynch (Dokken), Steven Adler (Guns ‘N Roses) and John 5 (David Lee Roth, Marilyn Manson).

Keyboardist Victor Bender began his career in Colombia with Fuentes Records, then segued into crafting demos for artists like Universal Records pop sensation Juanes. Moving to Los Angeles, Victor formed Bender Post and dove into campaigns for brands like Coca-Cola and Samsung and studios such as DisneyParamountNetflixSony, Universal, and FOX.

ZEP-LA is an experience like no other, a complete immersion into the ethereal world of Led Zeppelin.
