Lez Zeppelin an all-woman band gained worldwide critical acclaim for the musicianship, passion and gender-audacity they bring to the music of Led Zeppelin, makes its Parker Playhouse debut on Saturday August 26, 2017 at 8 p.m. Dubbed by Spin Magazine as “the most powerful all-female band in rock history," Lez Zeppelin has toured throughout the United States, Europe and Japan. A recent set list by the band included Led Zeppelin hits “Whole Lotta Love,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “The Song Remains the Same,” and “Rock and Role.”
In June 2005, Spin Magazine featured Lez Zeppelin as a leading trend of all-female hard rock “tribute” bands. The group was referred to as a “kind of multilayered cultural phenomenon.” The Times of London called the band “the best new band seen all year, and CNN ran a front page feature that called the group so “electrifying they are driving audiences to a frenzy.
Throughout 2008, the group continued to tour to promote the release of their debut record, and in 2010, the band returned to the studio to record a second album. In late 2007, the band consisted of Steph Paynes, Sarah McLellan on vocals, Helen Destroy on drums, and Lisa Brigantino on bass and keyboards. To date, the group now consists of Steph Paynes, Shannon Conley, Morgan Thomas and Leesa Harrington-Squyres.
