Northern Ireland’s premier Led Zeppelin tribute band return to the Errigle Inn on Saturday 18th February.
Founded originally in the late ‘90s, The Rubber Plants’ music and personnel gradually changed to encompass more and more Led Zeppelin material until, by 1999, the had evolved into the beginnings of what they are today: A tight, professional Zeppelin tribute band, whose dynamic two-hours set has been distilled into an exciting mixture of power and innovation which genuinely captures the spirit of the original masters.
The band consists of Gerry Wilkinson on drums, Paul Tracey on bass and Gavin Correy on lead vocals and guitar. It is a mammoth task to take on the vocal range of Robert Plant and the masterful guitar licks of Jimmy Page but Correy deals with them admirably.
The band never attempts to clone Zeppelin’s tunes but to play them with heart and power, gaining respect and admiration from knowledgeable musical fans everywhere.
