Photos by Samantha Paige
We are very lucky to have been photographed regularly by these two fantastic photographers. The first set, taken by Dave Smith Taylor, were snapped at the Mick Jagger Centre in Dartford on Saturday 27th January 2018, whilst the second load of pics were taken by Samantha Paige at the fantastic MK11 Venue in Milton Keynes the day before!
As you can see from the photos, we take a lot of pride in the look of the band, aiming to mimic a Led Zeppelin show in all its glory. From the authentic instruments to the superb hand-made costumes, we can take you to a place where no other Led Zeppelin tribute band in history will, right back to the glory days of the late 60's and the 70's!
And not only does CODA - a Tribute to Led Zeppelin LOOK authentic, it sounds authentic too. Ludwig Vistalite drum kit, replete with Ludwig 402 snare drum and Paiste 2002 cymbals, reminiscent of Bonzo's set up in the mid 70's? Check! Replica Gibson Les Paul hand-made by our guitarist Adam Rose-Alison, who also builds the most exquisite furniture by the way (www.lignae.co.uk), with many authentic and reproduction parts so good that you would almost believe it came from 1959? Check! Iconic Gibson EDS 1275 copy, also hand-made by Adam, as used on live versions of Stairway to Heaven, the Rain Song and many more? Check!
And what about those costumes? Many were hand-made or sourced by our very own Robert Plant, Peter Byrne, talented singer and seamstress. Check out the jacket that our very own Jonesy, Rob Deery, is wearing! The John Bonham replica t-shirt, complete with hand-sewn sequins, was created by the lovely Fiona Goble for her boyfriend and drummer of the band, Simon Wicker.
This is why the CODA - a Tribute to Led Zeppelin experience is truly THE Led Zeppelin experience for all Led Zeppelin fans, and fans of great music, all over the world. All four members of CODA - a Tribute to Led Zeppelin are all huge fans of Led Zeppelin and have formed this band with the intention of producing the foremost tribute to the greatest rock band ever. No wigs, no egos, no theatricals and no backing tracks, just the pure magic, power and excitement of the best music ever, peformed with love, for you!
