Songs from the greatest rock band of all time done by the greatest trombone band of all time!
“From the first notes of this record, which will also be available on vinyl, you know you’re in for something special.” – Jay Mazza, The Vinyl District
“20 years of making music together has brought forth a worthy take on the Led Zeppelin songbook. A worthy listen.” – All About Vocals
“The world is overcrowded with reverent tributes to tired classic-rock material, but Bonerama’s all–Led Zeppelin album isn’t one of those. It’s full of audacious arrangements that turn the classic tunes every which way, yet remain entirely true to the Zeppelin spirit.” – Brett Milano, OffBeat Magazine
“Bonerama is viewed by some as one of the most genuine, unique and interesting bands to come from the Crescent City, incorporating brass, funk, soul, rock, blues and alternative into their one-of-a-kind sound. Three trombones, plus sousaphone, guitar and drums all deliver powerful sounds that you have to hear to believe.” – Relix Magazine
Included in “New Orleans Jazz Fest 2018: The 7 Best Things We Saw” – Rolling Stone
Anybody who’s been to a Bonerama live show is no stranger to the band laying down some funked-up, brassy renditions of classic rock songs. Fans of those moments are in for a treat, because the band is gifting the world an album of nothing but Led Zeppelin covers. Bonerama Plays Zeppelin is exactly what you think it is, a collection of your favorite songs from the greatest rock band of all time covered by the greatest trombone band of all time. If you have any doubt that a Trombone-centric band can really rock, pick a tune at random from this release, and be defied. Whether it be the lava-hot vocals on “Black Dog”, the distorted wah-wah trombone replacing the traditional guitar on “In My Time of Dying”, or even a surreal lightning-fast sousaphone solo on the funkified version of “Heartbreaker,” Bonerama proves they can rock with the best of them.
Known the world over for its incendiary live performances, Bonerama has been bringing its specialized brand of New Orleans music to the masses for over 20 years. Bonerama is currently comprised of Mark Mullins (trombone, electric trombone and lead vocals), Craig Klein (trombone and lead vocals), Greg Hicks (trombone and vocals), Bert Cotton (guitar), Matt Perrine (sousaphone and electric bass) and Walt Lundy (drums and vocals).

This is such a cool concept and Bonerama have executed it perfectly. Who else could pull off Led Zepp covers with trombones? Some are close to the originals, others stray far with an unmistakeable New Orleans style flair. All the band members play their asses off as usual; then the crazy high raspy Robert Plant-esque vocals of drummer AJ Hall just kick it up a notch. Also, check out Mark Mullins’ son Michael on Good Times/Bad Times. You need this CD, download or vinyl in your world. If not, your Dad does for Father’s Day, right?
