The act formed in Los Angeles in 1995 and started touring nationally in 1999. They portray both the appearance and playing styles of the musicians in Led Zeppelin. Their set list includes tunes like "Stairway to Heaven," "What Is and What Should Never Be" and "Whole Lotta Love."

"Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim, name recognition and a large loyal following," according to the band's website.
