Rock on as Coda sign up for John Bonham tribute gig at Queens Head

Ross Crawford 31st Aug, 2019

THE show will go on – that’s the pledge from top Led Zeppelin tribute band Coda.

Coda had been booked to headline the John Bonham Celebration on Saturday, September 21.

However after that event was cancelled Coda managed to secure a gig at the Queen’s Head pub – close to where the Celebration was due to take place – so their own tribute could go ahead as planned on the same night.

Not only will it be a celebration of the life and works of what many regard as the greatest ever rock drummer ever but it will also mark 50 years since the release of the groundbreaking Led Zeppelin II album.

Not only that but the gig will also raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, the charity which was to benefit from the John Bonham Celebration.

“The first set of our show will consist of the whole album, including such classics as Whole Lotta Love and Ramble On, as well some great but lesser-played tracks such as Living Loving Maid and Lemon Song, and of course not forgetting Moby Dick,” said Simon Whicker of Coda.

“The second half of the show will feature a fantastic selection of showstoppers and rockers from across Led Zeppelin’s albums, with the band performing many live versions of tracks such as Kashmir, the Rain Song, Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog and much more.”

The band not only look and sound the part but play amazing replica instruments so they can faithfully showcase the sounds and sights of Led Zeppelin at their peak.

Tickets are £10 plus booking fee in advance, or £12 on the door, and can be bought from here

Doors open at 8pm, show starts at 9pm.
