Full Show Audio: Bustle In Your Hedgerow Celebrates 13th Anniversary In New York City
Led Zeppelin tribute act Bustle In Your Hedgerow shows have been few and far between since 2013, when the four members of the band paired with Tom Hamilton to form Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. The Grateful Dead tribute shows have taken precedent over Bustle performances, but thankfully drummer Joe Russo, guitarist Scott Metzger bassist Dave Dreiwitz and keyboardist Marco Benevento still come together for time-to-time to Get The Led Out.
Following a one-set performance at the Peach Music Festival in mid-August, Bustle In Your Hedgerow played their only full two-set show of 2016 to celebrate not only the 13th anniversary of their first gig but also impresario Jake Szufnarowski’s 43rd birthday. Bustle came together on August 30 to play a Rocks Off cruise aboard The Jewel that sailed around the New York City harbor. With JRAD playing so much, Bustle thrived from the tightness that comes with dozens of shows each year as the Led Zeppelin tribute was always a once or twice a year gig.
BIYR opened with a powerful “The Song Remains The Same” and mixed some of Led Zeppelin’s most familiar songs including “Ramble On,” “Kashmir,” “No Quarter” and “What Is And What Should Never Be” with deep cuts such as “We’re Gonna Groove,” “Out On The Tiles” and “For Your Life.” The two-set performance was the longest Bustle show in years and is available for our listening pleasure via a crispy soundboard matrix recording put together by Eric McRoberts:
Set One: The Song Remains The Same, Celebration Day, The Ocean, Ramble On, Nobody’s Fault But Mine, Dazed And Confused, Kashmir, We’re Gonna Groove
Set Two: Karina Rykman Intro, The Lemon Song, No Quarter, Since I’ve Been Loving You, Out On The Tiles, Down By The Seaside, Wanton Song, What Is And What Should Never Be, For Your Life
