WHOLE LOTTA LOVE announces 2015 Sydney and Central Coast shows!Wednesday, 03 June 2015 16:19
WHOLE LOTTA LOVE 2015 will once again recreate the magic and mystique of Led Zeppelin with another sensational group of guest vocalists including:
Jeff Martin (The Tea Party)
Sarah McLeod (The Superjesus)
Simon Meli (The Widowbirds)
Frank Lakoudis (The Voice)
Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the release of Led Zeppelin’s seminal Physical Graffiti double album this year, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE is an unrivalled concert experience that has toured all over Australia and built a peerless reputation for exceptional interpretations, stunning musicianship and spine-tingling moments throughout it’s eleven year history and 2015’s vocalist line-up will be sure to have audiences needing coolin’, way down inside.
Joined by a 9 piece band featuring some of the country’s best rock musicians under the creative direction of Joseph Calderazzo (guitars), string section and big screen visuals, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE will deftly traverse the back catalogue of the biggest band in rock history.
Universally recognised as one of the world’s most influential bands since forming in 1968, Led Zeppelin produced nine studio albums, three live albums, and have sold a staggering 300+ million albums worldwide featuring guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bass player John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham.
Passionate interpretations of Stairway To Heaven, Rock And Roll, Kashmir, The Rain Song, Moby Dick, Black Dog, Ramble On, No Quarter, Battle Of Evermore, Immigrant Song take the audience on a three hour journey through a collection of hits and rarities from the band’s infamous career.
CCEntertainment was established in 2003 by Martin Contemprée and Joseph Calderazzo with the stated aim of producing concerts of the highest quality that celebrate and re-interpret the words and music of iconic bands and recording artists from the 60‘s and 70‘s.
The WHOLE LOTTA LOVE celebration was the first ever concert produced by CCE performed at the legendary Basement in Sydney in 2003. Joseph Calderazzo had previously produced two successful acoustic Zeppelin shows at the Iguana Bar prior to this, so it was most appropriate that the mighty opening riff of ‘Rock and Roll’, which began the Basement show, also heralded the arrival of CCE. In September 2009 the 7th annual WHOLE LOTTA LOVE took CCE to a new and bigger stage, The Enmore Theatre, where a capacity crowd saw an extraordinary concert that finished with a standing ovation, summed up by Rod Quinn from ABC Radio: “a stunning night of rock and roll, I felt I was in the presence of Led Zeppelin”.
Fast forward to 2015 and WHOLE LOTTA LOVE is now in it’s 12th year and is playing to capacity crowds around the country. “The show is about raw passion, without any fluff - it’s honest and organic and comes from a place that connects with Zeppelin fans and lovers of great music” said Joseph Calderazzo, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE’s Artistic Director.
