Zoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Tribute

Zoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Tribute

Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating
Led Zeppelin live show since the real thing. For Zoso, it’s much more than just being a tribute. It’s about
touching a golden era in music. Zoso embodies Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones in their spirit, tightlywound talent and authenticity.
Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their
Led Zeppelin counterparts. In eighteen successful years of touring, they have perfected their art. As one of
the longest tenured Zeppelin tributes, Zoso’s 2400 live shows around the world, including a slot at
Bonnaroo in 2003, have established them as the most traveled and successful band in the market.
Zoso’s live shows are not about simply playing the right notes, they are about aura and feeling, harkening
back to the unique atmosphere Led Zeppelin created. It’s in the way they play: Each band member’s
mastery of authentic vintage instruments coupled with spot­on vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards,
their compelling stage persona and distinct Led Zeppelin sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates
the music, magic, and mystery of a Zeppelin concert. The impact is so powerful that band members
constantly hear from young rockers that they were the catalyst behind turning them into new, die­hard
Zeppelin fans.
Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim,
name recognition and a loyal national following. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being "head
and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes," and the Chicago Sun­Times declared Zoso is "the
closest to the original of any tribute."
If you missed Led Zeppelin live in the 70's or are looking to relive the "Hammer of the Gods" phenomenon,
you must experience what the St. Petersburg Times calls "the most exacting of the Zeppelin tribute bands
in existence."

Even it Up (Ultimate Heart Tribute)

Kristy Johnson (Ann Wilson)
Kristy was born and raised in the Dallas area and has studied music since childhood. She studied vocal music through elementary, middle and high school, and then went on to study vocal performance at Stephen F. Austin State University on a vocal scholarship. Being classically trained in vocal music has helped her develop a three octave range that lends to being able to cover the powerful scope of Ann Wilson's vocals. She's ready to wail, and the walls are gonna burn down when she steps up to the mic.

Kristy has performed with a number of bands and projects in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and is also the lead vocalist for the Dallas-area cover band, Burning Sky, as well as Hella Good - A World Class Tribute to No Doubt / Gwen Stefani. She has a true passion for music and loves performing. For Kristy, pulling this amazing group of musicians together to form this tribute project is a "bucket list" dream come true.


Casey Nicole (Nancy Wilson)
Casey is a singer/songwriter based in Dallas, TX. From a musical family, she studied piano starting at age 9. In high school, she took up guitar and started writing songs shortly after. Casey graduated from UT Dallas with a degree in business in 2008. Her influences span the musical spectrum but listeners have compared her sound to Sarah McLachlan, Jewel and Fleetwood Mac - among others.

Casey gigs in the Dallas area and supports the local musician’s community by hosting a monthly, songwriter showcase at the Absinthe Lounge. Her second EP is currently being recorded with her long time collaborator and producer, Bryan Sing, and has an expected release date in 2016. Her debut EP, Waterfall of Feelings, was released in 2013 with excellent reviews.


Dave Powell (Lead Guitar)

His experience has taken him abroad for Carnival Cruise Lines, Sony BMG in Nashville, CMA in Nashville, the FOX reality show "Nashville", performances at SXSW and many live radio performances. Dave's talent has landed him as a featured guitarist, opening for artists such as Pat Green, Randy Rogers, Kevin Fowler, Deryl Dodd, Cory Morrow and more.

Like the rest of us, Dave is a true Heart fan and is passionate about this music. Expect to hear all of your favorite, smoldering Heart leads from this hot shot!


Glenn Johnson (Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals)
Glenn is a powerful part of Even It Up. A multi-talented musician and vocalist, Glenn handles electric and acoustic guitar as well as keyboards.
His smooth vocal timber and natural flair for harmonies add amazing dimension and texture to Even It Up.

Glenn has a long history with music and has covered everything from classical music with the Ft. Worth Youth Orchestra to extensive experience with a number of local rock bands since the 80s including Holland, Script, QSL and Rockit Science. He also plays guitar, keyboards and vocals for the Dallas-area cover band, Burning Sky.


Eric Sykes (Bass Guitar)
We are very proud to welcome Eric Sykes as our bass player. Eric has an impressive background that includes over 20 years of music instruction, performing as a studio musician as well as a history of performing as a live musician with some of north Texas' most impressive, prestigious bands. With a Bachelor's Degree in Music Theory from the University of North Texas, Eric's incredible skill level and performance flair makes him someone we're beyond proud to have on board.

Pat Calabrese (Drums)
Pat Calabrese is originally from just outside New York City. Growing up, he had access to study with some of the best teachers in the NYC area, and was able to gain considerable experience playing in a wide variety of musical situations including jazz, musical theater, R&B and soul, progressive rock, and just about everything in between. In fact, Pat was playing in New York and New Jersey clubs before he was even old enough to be in them!

Pat brings all these experiences to the stage with every performance behind the drums, but in his heart, he just wants to rock. Pat has played with a number of great projects (most recently, he was the drummer for "3 Drunk Monkeys") but now he is thrilled to be a member of both Even It Up as well as the local classic to current cover band, Burning Sky.
