Formed in 2005 and hailing from Hell's Kitchen, NYC, Led Blimpie's tribute to the music of Led Zeppelin is performed with painstaking accuracy and reverence.
An homage to the brilliance of their recordings; performed with all the passion and exuberance evident of true fans.
Not posers or impersonators,these die-hard rockers bring their own style and humor to the stage: exhilarating fans, instigating sing-a-longs and rockin' the requests!
The humorous aspect of the sandwich alludes to the sense of humor and humility with-which the band executes the herculean task of recreating the most powerful rock and roll music ever created.
The food aspect is two-fold in that like the music, the sandwich can be described as full, rich, hearty, fat, complicated and satisfying.
It also points to the appetite of its founding member, Thor Fields, who sports his girth with pride. And has an insatiable passion for food and music.
Also known for the artwork that promotes their shows, Led Blimpie parodies the classic Zeppelin artwork, substituting an enormous sandwich for the doomed dirigible.
Instantly recognizable and hilarious to most Zeppelin fans, the parodies allude to a number of things: epicurean, phallic and avian.
