Jimmy Page is the primary keeper of the Led Zeppelin flame. He oversees the Zepp catalogue and handles the remixing and remastering when it gets reissued and even better when new stuff gets released (How the West Was Won, Celebration Day on November 19); he is the watcher and holder of their musical legacy. But thankfully, he's not the only one keeping the Zeppelin flame alive, and tonight that flame will be burning at the Rapids Theatre in Niagara Falls when Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience rolls through town. The son of legendary Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, Jason has played with a ton of bands including Led Zeppelin when Mssrs. Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones want to (infrequently) jam, and his Led Zeppelin experience is a potent and enjoyable tour of the band's vast musical legacy. Doors open at 6:30, the show starts at 7:30, tickets are $45 at the door, and it's an all ages show (kids under 16 do need an adult to get in).
I would also be remiss if I didn't mention that the Regal on Transit will be showing an encore presentation of Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day tomorrow night at 7:30. If the sound is cranked up to proper levels it is a face melting experience watching Zeppelin be Zeppelin, creating that Zeppelin sound live in front of 18,000 blessed souls in December 2007, and a lot of that is due in no small part to Jason Bonham on drums. It's a Zeppelin two-fer, Jason Bonham tonight and Celebration Day tomorrow night. You can't go wrong.
