Windborne’s Music of Led Zeppelin

The Music of Led Zeppelin was Windborne’s first Classic Rock Symphony venture in late 1995. The concept was originated with this show and Mr. Havens began transcribing and scoring the show in August of that year. Hiring top notch studio musicians and searching for a singer that could handle the difficult range of singer Robert Plant was no easy task. Finding Randy Jackson to handle the part was fortuitous and he was a perfect fit for the show. After a couple of shows in Virginia, The Music of Led Zeppelin was brought to Atlanta’s Chastain Amphitheater in 1996 and met with great success. From there the show began its North American tour across the country and into Canada.

The music features a massive array of songs from the Zeppelin catalog, many of which already had some orchestration. It was a perfect fit for orchestras. Whether the orchestra is playing the lush harmonies afforded the songs or playing the lick-based lines that were created by Plant, Page and John Paul Jones, the driving tunes allow the musicians to dig into their instruments and rock with the band or play counterpoint melodies to the guitar solos or singer.

The concept was to keep the band as close to the original recordings as possible and to wrap the orchestra around the band as one big entity. Rather than the orchestra being a separate part of the music it becomes another instrument within the band. The show even features an Electric Violinist. Some of the songs that you may hear on the show are Kashmir, Black Dog, Good Times, Bad Times, All of My Love and of course Stairway to Heaven. And just so you know, it’s a rock show with rock lighting… and even a mirrorball. Come to the concert ready to be amazed!


The Musicians for this show are:
Brent Havens – Conductor, Arranger
Randy Jackson – Vocals
Dan Clemens – Bass
Powell Randolph – Drums
George Cintron – Guitar
Allegra– Electric Violin
