“The show is throw back to the seventies when outdoor music was the norm. We all remember the unbelievable wall of sound and the big stage and light shows.  Well, that’s what we do at the local level and the fans love it. For the Palmetto show we are giving fans the Zeppelin Experience and we brought in the ultimate Led Zeppelin tribute band, Led Hed.”
