Kelly 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

Darren says-
Last year's show was indeed a musical highlight for all of us and we're thrilled to once again, perform "The Greatest Live Rock Album Ever Made."

I remember playing stage left - literally STUNNED by the sensational power and personality emanating from my bandmates.
Keith and Kelly WERE John Entwistle and Keith Moon on any given night in 1970.
Zach WAS Roger Daltrey from soulful to rafter knocking banshee wail - and his swinging microphone almost took my teeth out.
Me...I love Pete Townshend. I was playing along to Live at Leeds when I was 15 so I can say I at least brought the Hiwatt, the white jumpsuit and the love...though my windmills were...quixotic.

Also -
We will be performing much of the extended version so expect the hits, highlights from Tommy and A Quick One (While he's Away).

If you like The Who do not miss this show!
