Oh what a great day today turned out to be. I found Zepparella.
What or who is Zepparella? I hear some of you say.
Just about the most amazing band I've heard in a long while.
An all female Led Zeppelin cover band. Wow!
Along the way I found a few more Led Zeppelin cover bands, including a couple more all female bands.
But for my taste Zepparella are unbeatable.
I'm not biased because they come out of San Francisco, they are just the best.
So I cherry picked some of my favorite songs, and let's face it these ladies are tremendous.
Guitars, awesome. Drums totally stoked. Bass really? Really!!!! Vocals, fucking amazing.

Welcome to Zepparella, four women intent on bringing the passion, the beauty, the aggression, the musicality of Led Zeppelin alive.
Zepparella explores their own improvised magic within the framework of Zeppelin’s mighty songs. For five years, the Zeppelin love has washed in waves out of the doors of the venues.
Initial skeptics have been quickly converted. Followers recount the number of shows they’ve seen, and the regulars notch 40, 50, over 100 shows on their belts, traveling between states to see the shows.
