Tributes to the Greats

NO QUARTER – TRIBUTE TO THE LED ZEPPELIN LEGACY

Last year, No Quarter rocked the Sanctuary hard with killer Led Zeppelin classics meant to be heard live and loud. We look forward to another packed house for this dead-on Zeppelin experience.

For over 15 years No Quarter (a tribute to the Led Zeppelin legacy) has been pounding the Hammer of the Gods to Led Zeppelin Fans both nationally and internationally. This authentic Live Concert reproduction goes far beyond any group of musicians covering the same tunes you’ve heard on the radio for over 4 decades. Any musician can learn a song note for note. However, to do a full tribute with all of the subtle nuances and authentic look and sound and mannerisms is comparable to an actor preparing for a character in a film. In this case the characters are members of the Legendary British Supergroup.No Quarter captures the characters of John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant and brings each individual member to the stage in their absolute Prime. Die Hard Zeppelin Fans and Rockstars they’ve shared the stage with have sworn they were watching the real group live. Hence the word being spread that No Quarter is “The Real Deal” when it comes to Led Zeppelin tributes.

BLUES BEATLES

Taking the Beatles for a new spin, this Brazilian blues band remixes these classics with a whole new vibe.

Blues Beatles started during the breaks of the rehearsals of Today – an original band that Marcos Viana, Flavio Naves, Bruno Falcão and Fred Barley started in 2012. Marcos, the singer, would invariably pick up his acoustic guitar and start playing Beatles songs. The other members of the band were amazed at how natural the songs sounded, as if he had written them himself. Being blues players the rest of the band started adding their blues twist to these “break songs”.

The first version of the Beatles songs that caught people’s attention was A Hard Days Night. The video now has more than two million views on Facebook. The band has worked and reworked many different songs since it was formed, but only the ones that sound natural to their ears stay in the repertoire. The arrangements combine blues and soul grooves that suit the vocals of the songs while adding a different feel to them. Instrumental solos and improvisation, typical elements of the blues, are an integral part of the Blues Beatles style. Their fiery live performances showcase their individual and collective skills as soloists.
