The Press Release:
No Quarter — the tribute band that proudly presents the live Led Zeppelin experience – will kick off 2019 with the “Good Times In 2019” Northeast Tour.

For over 15 years, No Quarter has captivated fans nationally and internationally with their authentic representation of the classic Led Zeppelin live set. Honoring the music and the men who made it, No Quarter set the time machine squarely to the 1970s, bringing the magic of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham to a new generation.

In fact, when John Paul Jones met his “counterpart” bassist Chad McMurray and was shown a photo of No Quarter, he was so struck by the likeness, he exclaimed “that’s scary….As long as you’re doing it, means we don’t have to.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I’ve only seen some YouTube.com videos of ZS and those show that the act is a tight effort all around. I expected as much since Zakk played with Ozzy for so long and is well versed in the legendary material. I’m glad that a show at our own regional Gramercy Theatre will be happening since I’d like to catch this for sure. What do you readers think of this brief outing? Are you big fans of Zakk and his Sabbath renditions or will you forever pine that the legendary band has moved into a well-deserved retirement. Let me know in the comments section below. Oh yeah and fans of the Fast Food Metal variety might want to catch “Mac Sabbath” who will be playing the region in March if memory serves me correctly.

*** end of transmission ***

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Well, that’s not really a lot of gigs to get to see the band is it? Hopefully they’ll mark out some additional stops and depending on when or if they do, I’ll either append this post or make a new one. Only time will tell. The band now features Phil Soussan on the bass in place of the late great Jimmy Bain who left us in 2016. So what do you readers think about this former members of Dio united and touring with Dio’s classic repertoire along with new material? Let me know in the comments section below. I’ll poke around for the new album “Heavy Crown” that they’ve recorded and released and try to get a review up here soon enough. After seeing and hearing singer Andrew Freeman on some YouTube clips, I can say that the spirit of Ronnie is with his pipes for sure. Stay tuned for that and until next time I bid you farewell.
