Go on Boot Led! The nearest thing i have heard to the lords of rock.
They got me so close to my true fantasy of hearing Led Zep live. You seriously won't get any closer than this!
Fearne Cotton, TV and Radio Presenter
You sound so much like the real thing!

Boot Led Zeppelin successfully revived the spirit of Led Zeppelin’s Earls Court 1975 shows with a marathon performance at the Shepherds Bush Empire last Saturday.
Radio One DJ Fearne Cotton introduced the band on stage to a very enthusiastic crowd. For the next three hours, Boot Led Zep looked the part, sounded the part and even spoke the part –singer Luke Ward adapting Robert Plant’s between song intros and patter from the original Earls Court shows. This added yet more authenticity to a performance that celebrated the 35th anniversary of those epic Zep shows in true style.
The TBL crew was in attendance for this celebration – and it provided the opportunity for the Bedford four of myself, Dec, Tom and Phil, to get back together 35 years on from witnessing Zep at Earls Court for another memorable evening of Led Zep mayhem.
Many thanks to Graeme Hutchinson and Pam Matthews for their assistance on the night and Raff, Luke and co for kicking off the Zep at Earls Court 35th anniversary celebrations with such authenticity and style.

The sound is perfect, the look uncannily detailed, and they dominate the stage with red hot performances that demonstrate their love and respect for the original music.

Just as the recent BBC series, 'Life on Mars' threw its protagonist back to a nostalgic vision of 1973, so the aptly-named Boot-Led-Zeppelin recreate the same bygone era with meticulous attention to detail. Not only do they sound uncannily like the Zep, they even look like they have been cloned from that most Spinal Tappish of films, 'The Song remains the Same'. The same hairstyles and colours, the same big girls' blouses ..
What blows you away most is the full conviction with which this five-piece band deliver their set. They look, sound and even emanate the ambience of the stalwart seventies rockers but retain their own independence as fabulous musicians in their own right.
The Boot-Led-Zeppers have a stage presence to challenge any contemporary band. Their carefully designed costumes, effects and own sheer enjoyment of the music fuels their powerful performance, no doubt honed by their dedication to their idols.
I have seen many bands the late great Queen among them But this is without question the best tributer band I have ever seen. I just went to the Hexagon tonight and was simply blown away I shut my eyes and thought - ****me it's the real thing! That good. Dazed and Confused was exceptional and Jimmy would be proud of that absoulutely Awesome. I cant wait to see you again it was fantastic and I know you would have gone on for longer had the trumpet head in the corner not told you to stop.
All the best from Dave Tim Mark and Sarah we just simply loved it

You lovely lot! You were amazing & so, so accurate, what a gig, it lifted my spirit off the ground as well as all of Cambridge! Really enjoyed it, didn't want it to finish, really want to go again which I can't say for a lot of tribute bands I have seen. Robert Luke Plant has got one of the sexiest voices I have ever heard in my life whether speaking or singing. I was the woman yelling for When The Levee Breaks. Amazing. I still cannot believe how good it was. cheers

Wow what can I say about Saturday's performance at Rock City. You were fantastic, truly the best Zeppelin band I have ever seen ( believe me I have seen many!). We were still talking about you guys until late last night.
Right from the start when you opened up with the Immigrant Song - like being at Earls Court all over again! Truly amazing. Just wish you did more East Midlands gigs. I was right at the front all night and was blown away by your true professionalism, talent and crowd pleasing set. Many people in the crowd had never seen a Zep band before, and for those who had, we all agreed you have to be the best!! Please come back again soon.
Thanks a million for a truly wonderful and memorable night.
