Rock fans are being asked to put their hats on for Jersey Opera House’s forthcoming show, Hats Off to Led Zeppelin, to help raise money Headway Jersey.
The UK tribute act, which is performing in the island on Saturday 20th October, wants audience members to attend the gig in their best boaters and bowlers, Stetsons and sombreros, trilbies and top hats in support of the local head injury charity. The band, which is widely acclaimed to be one of the finest tributes to the legendary Led Zeppelin, hopes that the atmosphere will be even more electric in the auditorium on the night with fans raising the roof, throwing their hats off and digging deep for Headway.
Headway fundraiser Bethany Gallichan said: “This is set to be a fantastic evening of live entertainment, we are grateful to both Jersey Opera House and Hats off to Led Zeppelin for choosing to support Headway in such a fun way. Those who attend or wear a hat to the show will be helping raise awareness and improve life locally for survivors of brain injury”
Jersey Opera House Marketing & Sales Manager Abi Nance said: “It’s great to be able to work with another local charity in this capacity to add a different dynamic to our shows. We hope that the night will not only be a rocking event for all attending but also a beneficial fundraiser for a very worthwhile cause.”
A relatively young group, Hats off to Led Zeppelin have been going for about two years but three of the four members have worked together for more than two decades. The musicians seamlessly recreate all the original Led Zeppelin hits from Hypnotic Kashmir to the infamous Stairway to Heaven. Peter Elderidge takes on the challenge of frontman Robert Plant’s vocals, multi-instrumentalist Kevin Oliver Jones pays homage to bassist, mandolinist and keyboardist John Paul Jones, Simon Wicker is drummer John ‘Bonzo’ Bonham incarnate, and Jack Tanner does Jimmy Page proud on guitar.
The band is co-managed by Warren Grant, son of legendary Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant, who said that Hats Off really did Led Zeppelin justice. Stunningly accurate with all the right instruments and all the right notes, this band will take you back to the 1960s and 70s, so dust off your flares and don your best hat for Hats Off to Led Zeppelin live.
Headway volunteers will hold a collection after the performance.
Hats Off to Led Zeppelin is performing at Jersey Opera House on Saturday 20th October at 8pm. Tickets are £20 and are available from Box Office (01534) 511 109 or online at www.jerseyoperahouse.co.uk.
