About Led Zepagain
A born and bred Irishman from Drogheda, Ireland, lead singer Swan Montgomery’s uncanny portrayal of Robert Plant has placed him consistently among LA’s most popular performers since the early 90’s. Swan has toured in Ireland, UK and Europe. He is also one of the lead singers in Superstars of Rock, and has a solo cd out called Newgrange, which is available at cdbaby.com. Multi-instrumentalist Jim Wooten fills the demanding role of John Paul Jones masterfully; covering Bass, Keyboards, Mandolin, Acoustic 6 & 12 string guitars, and backing vocals. Talent apparently runs in the family, as Jim’s uncle is none other than legendary guitarist, Les Paul! Jim’s other bands include CSN Tribute, 4 Way Street.
Steve Zukowsky first picked up the guitar at age 11, inspired by the great rock guitarists of the 70’s, such as Jimmy Page, Brian May, Peter Frampton, Pat Travers and Michael Schenker. In 1977, he got to see Led Zeppelin in concert in Oakland, CA, at what would be their second to last show ever in the US. Steve rushed home after that show, picked up the guitar and learned ‘Over the Hills and Far Away’ right then! From that moment on, Led Zeppelin and the guitar style of Jimmy Page would be a huge influence on Steve’s playing.
In 1993, Steve formed his first tribute band, a tribute to Queen called ‘Sheer Heart Attack,’ which got rave reviews from both fans and the LA music press. Since then, Steve has lent his guitar talents to no less than 8 of LA’s top tribute bands, as a member or a substitute player, and still plays acoustic & rhythm guitar with the highly regarded Pink Floyd tribute, ‘Which One’s Pink’. In 2001, Steve jumped at the chance to join Swan in Led Zepagain, and has been winning over even the most die-hard Led Zeppelin fans with his uncanny portrayal of Jimmy Page.
With his amazing feel for the late, great, John “Bonzo” Bonham, drummer Jim Kersey leaves audiences shouting for more, especially after every performance of Zeppelin’s classic drum solo epic, “Moby Dick!” A highly accomplished drummer, Jim’s other bands currently include Peace Frog (Doors) and the Superstars of Rock.
Jim has recorded and/or performed with Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, James Cotton, Coco Montoya, the Mamas and the Papas, and The James Montgomery Band, and studied drums and percussion with Carmine Appice, and at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Jim is a proud endorser of Ludwig Drums and Avedis Zildjian cymbals, gongs & sticks.
In January 2004, Led Zepagain was paid the highest compliment ever when Jimmy Page caught their show at the House of Blues in Hollywood. After watching the show, he requested to meet the band in the dressing room, and praised them on their accuracy!
Led Zepagain takes their audience to a place that not only replicates a Led Zeppelin concert, but captures the heart and soul of the world’s greatest band. A Led Zepagain show features all of the Zeppelin highlights, from the high energy electric classics, to the beautiful acoustic works; from the soaring leads on the double-neck guitar, to the brilliant keyboard passages, and from the high, Robert Plant screams, to the trademark pounding rhythms. From the moment Led Zepagain hits the stage, you’ll believe, this is definitely the “Real Deal!”
