Hot off their second sold-out concert at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Get the Led Out, best known as “The American Led Zeppelin,” will perform 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Miners Foundry.
From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, GTLO has captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage for audiences of all generations to experience and enjoy.
Longtime friends vocalist Paul Sinclair and guitarist Paul Hammond lead the Philadelphia-based group made up of veteran musicians.
Hammond is a producer, engineer, songwriter and an electronics technician. He has worked with such greats as Phil and Joe Nicolo and has sat in on watching these put together tracks for the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith. Sinclair also is an engineer and producer, and has shared the bill with Foghat, Savoy Brown, Kevin Dubrow of Quiet Riot and David Ruffin of The Temptations and many more.
“We were lucky to have grown up in Philly and been in successful bands before we started GLTO,” explains Hammond. “We started GTLO because we wanted to perform the recorded music of Led Zeppelin live as accurately as possible. It immediately resonated with people and has gone on to be wildly successful across the US.”
What sets GTLO apart from other tribute bands are their musical chops and their approach to the groups live show.
Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed.
The layering of guitars, vocals and other instruments that made the recordings of Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham so unique and powerful is something even Led Zeppelin didn’t try to recreate live.
When you hear three guitars on the album, GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants, a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.
GTLO performs 80-90 shows around the U.S. and Canada every year.
They are known to take audience requests and make sure that every night’s set is different. They focus on the early years performing such classics as “Black Dog,” “Rock and Roll,” “The Immigrant Song,” “Whole Lotta Love,” “Kashmir,” “Ramble On” and, of course, the inevitable “Stairway to Heaven.”
They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever, heard in concert.
GTLO also includes a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band.
“From eight to 80, it’s not uncommon to have three generations at our shows,” says Hammond.
