If there was ever a better time to showcase the timeless works of Led Zeppelin, that time is now. Anyone who grew up listening to Led Zeppelin is going to thrill at the opportunity to hear their music live yet again. Enter Custard Live, a New Jersey-based tribute that is recreating the works of Led Zeppelin to the delight and excitement of fans everywhere.
What sets Custard Live apart is their attention to detail. The group focuses their effort on the music itself as opposed to donning outfits, hair, and stage antics. Drawing upon both live and studio recordings Custard Live dissects transcriptions and recordings looking for the best representation of the original scores while drawing iconic motifs and rhythms into live arrangements producing seemingly flawless reproductions of the original recordings.
The group consists of top-notch players with a passion for the music of Led Zeppelin with varied backgrounds and musical experiences:
Vocalist Rob Hubertz draws upon a myriad of influences including Led Zeppelin. An international touring artist, Rob also performs with Iron Maiden tribute MaidenNY, C.O.D. and BarFly hailing from the Staten Island club scene. Fans of Led Zeppelin expect no less than perfection and there are not many that successfully recreate the sonorous crooning of Robert Plant as Rob seems to do almost effortlessly. Rob’s passion for music is effectively projected on audiences who seek to thrill from the melodious roller coaster ride of Plant’s melodies and expressive wailings.
The band’s rhythm section consists of Kevin Nay on guitars, John Daggett on drums and Tom Santo on bass. Together the three navigate the driving rhythmical underpinnings that set Led Zeppelin apart from other bands to come out of the 60s. Working in tandem the three weave together the quintessential grooves that everyone grew up on, building their live performances into a frenzied state and at times offering a surreal experience of the timeless sounds. With over twenty years of playing experience they each bring something special to the table and an ability to scrutinize and build upon their understanding of the nuances woven into the fabric of the works of Led Zeppelin.
The timing of the group’s rise in popularity coincides with the resurgence of the Zeppelin generation’s desire to relive those classic moments of the 60s, 70s and 80s. As the cycle completes itself it is a welcome return to something great that is lost in a lot of today’s music. The music of Led Zeppelin has never failed to reach people of all ages. Ranging from blues, rock, folk, country, jazz, rockabilly and reggae styles there is scarcely anything that Zeppelin did not seek to explore on some level which is perhaps one of the key reasons they are able to touch the lives of so many people.
“Hi guys, I'm from England and have seen many Zep tribute bands over the years as well as Zep 3 times, Plant twice, Page twice, and Page and Plant once, as well as having all the albums so I am well placed to tell you that you are without doubt the best proper Zep tribute band I have ever heard, what a shame you don’t do gigs in the UK, keep it up guys and stay 'tight but loose'.”
