Kashmir : Led Zeppelin Legacy

KASHMIR is a very entertaining show bringing only the best of LED ZEPPELIN to their fans.  KASHMIR seeks to re-create the experience of a 70’s Zeppelin show utilizing authentic vintage stage gear, costumes, and special effects, with great attention to detail in a non pretentious way. Most importantly, KASHMIR does not take liberties on improving the music. Led Zeppelin should be played as it was using only the equipment of the era and should be reproduced dead on with great respect and admiration. “It’s not about us, it’s about Led Zeppelin”. KASHMIR performs Led Zeppelin’s entire catalog including Led’s Zeppelin’s classic movie, The Song Remains The Same.
