The event creator says
In May 1970, the Who released the LP Live At Leeds. Recorded just a few months prior on Valentines Day at Leeds University, it perfectly captured an astonishing band at the very apex of their powers. The album was instantly hailed as “The Greatest Live Rock Album Ever Made.” Forty-five years later, a group of devoted musicians who grew up considering Live At Leeds as beyond-essential listening - as one of the main reasons why they wanted to make music in the first place! – now will pay loving homage to The Who and their brutal/ beautiful onslaught/ symphony. Not as an imitation act, not as a “Who Cover Band,” just as a celebration of the passion, the sense of commitment and devotion, and the pure elation of listening to and playing the music on Live At Leeds.

The Players:
Darren Loucas (The Jelly Rollers) – guitar, vocals
Zach Davidson (Vendetta Red) – lead vocals
Keith Lowe (Fiona Apple, Crack Sabbath, The Jukehouse Hounds) – bass, vocals
Kelly Van Camp (The Jukehouse Hounds, The Dusty 45s) – drums, vocals

Be forewarned: The Who’s amazing catalog featured songs of all styles and moods, but one constant about their live act was… IT WAS LOUD. Darren, Zach, Keith and Kelly may not try to match the HiWatts stack for stack, but they also don’t plan on holding back. Live At Leeds is a completely honest, in-your-face representation of rock & roll at its very finest, and needs to be treated as such.

As it said on the original LP label: “Crackling Noises OK – Do Not Correct!”
