The songs remain the same... just a different approach
Zeppelin USA (ZUSA for short) is all about the music and spirit of Led Zeppelin. When the members of ZUSA formed, a clear decision had to be made. We could have easily donned the blonde "Robert Plant" wig, the dragon suit a la Jimmy Page, the 3 rings on the kick drum, etc. as so many other Zep tributes have done. But we knew that in order to set ourselves apart from the pack we had to choose a different path. To stand on the music only, we know we're going to be judged hard in that respect. And so, we focus on getting the right tones, vocal inflections, our mix out front, borrowing a little from the studio versions here, the live versions there...much attention is spent on delivering a true sonic Zep experience.
But we also believe in entertainment. The members of ZUSA are veteran musicians who've performed for tens of thousands of people. This is, after all, show business, and we go out of our way to engage and entertain our audience, no matter the size. Our larger venue shows are complete productions with huge video screens, low fog, lasers, state of the art lighting, and theatrics.
A Zeppelin USA show captures the sound and spirit of the greatest rock band of all time, and promises to either introduce or remind fans of just how great the mighty Zep will always be.
A new band, comprised of veteran musicians from Las Vegas and Southern California, has formed and is preparing to bring a new energy to the Tribute band scene, and to Led Zeppelin fans from all walks of life.
Brody Dolyniuk, former lead singer and founder of the popular Las Vegas Classic Rock band, Yellow Brick Road, has long had a passion for singing Led Zeppelin music. After meeting up with former Led Zepagain guitarist Steve Zukowsky (2001-2012), a new kinship was born, and the idea of putting together a Led Zeppelin project was brought off the back burner. Joining up with former YBR bandmate Jonathan Gilcrest and So Cal drummer Pat Leon, the group met up at a rehearsal facility for the first time, and it quickly became clear that there was something worth pursuing.
Forgoing the costumes, the members of ZUSA are focused only on the music and the presentation, delivering everything that was great about the mighty Zep in their heyday...the sonic details of the studio masterpieces with the raw energy of their live performances....literally the best of both worlds.
In 2004, Jimmy Page watched Steve play a full set of Led Zeppelin music and praised him on his performance and attention to detail, signing an autograph for him: "Steve - Thanks for sounding so GOOD!!"
If, like many others, you have been waiting to see someone capture this magic and bring it to the stage with real passion and precision, your wait is over.
Enter ZUSA....the American Led Zeppelin tribute.
Glass Radio is one of those bands you can’t quite put your finger on. They have a unique sound which is infectiously likable- all the while maintaining the soul of golden- era Rock and Roll. In a world ravaged by musical conformity, they refuse to settle with today’s era of cookie-cutter pop singers and electronic beats. What do they sound like? How to put it... If Jack White stepped into a DeLorean, fired it up to 88mph, went back in time and picked up the likes of Led Zeppelin and Social Distortion, and then threw them in a boxing ring... That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
No strangers to the stage, big or small, they've opened for a multitude of legendary acts such as; Dick Dale, Josh Todd (of Buckcherry) and the Conflict, Eric Sardinas, Big Sandy, and Gamblers Mark, among others. Over the past year, they have begun to carve out their place in the Orange County music scene- letting people know, they are here to stay. And people are taking notice.
Glass Radio consists of its three founding members; Guitarist/vocalist Nate Curiel, Bassist/vocalist Kyle Korby, and Drummer/vocalist Nick Bishop. They met in the spring of 2013, while working at a local coffee shop in San Juan Capistrano. The trio bonded over their mutual love for Rock and Roll, and sought to create something fresh. Their debut EP, “Matinee” was released in December of 2016. Following the release, the band have played shows all over Orange County including; the legendary Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, The Wayfarer in Costa Mesa, and even residencies at Perq's in Huntington Beach and Sunsets in Capo Beach, among others.
The band just released their sophomore release, "Time's Up" in January. Building on the momentum of their debut release, “Time’s Up” showcase the diverse and unique sound of the band, and leaves you wanting more!
