    ABOUT KASHMIR

    KASHMIR: The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Tribute was created by acclaimed vocalist Jean Violet back in 2000. Since then, the production has grown from the streets of New York City into one of the world’s top Led Zeppelin tribute bands. KASHMIR captures all the raw energy and rock genius of a genuine Led Zeppelin concert. It’s all here: Plant’s powerhouse vocals, Page’s celebrated double-neck guitar, Bonham’s distinctive drum solos, plus a flashy presentation and a long list of Zeppelin’s greatest hits.

    KASHMIR is the most authentic representation of Led Zeppelin on the touring scene, sure to take fans back to the days when the mighty Zeppelin ruled the musical landscape. “This is not your typical tribute band,” says nj.com. “This is a four-piece ensemble of artists who not only play Zeppelin tunes, but assume the roles of the original members. KASHMIR stands out from other acts that mimic the iconic group – they bring fans back to the glory days of Led Zeppelin, and they look and sound fierce while doing it …”

    ABOUT GILMOUR’S BREAKFAST

    Gilmour’s Breakfast brings alive the music of Pink Floyd by performing an authentic and diverse catalogue of the band’s music all the way from their earliest material in 1967 to their final album in 2014. Featuring an international lineup of multi-instrumentalists from Scotland, Ireland and the United States, the band emulates the experience of a live Pink Floyd concert with lighting and visuals weaving through the sonic tapestry of the Floyd soundscape. While being able to perform note perfect renditions of the band’s studio recording, Gilmour’s Breakfast also takes pride in re-creating classic live versions of the band’s tracks and will often create compelling hybrid editions of their own. Any die-hard fan will be happy to hear a number of deep tracks while the casual listener will recognize their favorite FM hits.

    Gilmour’s Breakfast doesn’t just aim to please every fan in the audience but instead to lure them into a suspension of disbelief where they are experiencing a true Pink Floyd concert.
