FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Zepparella

An all-female, Led Zeppelin tribute band
Saturday, July 11th

The Paradise Theatre welcomes back to the stage, Zepparella, on Saturday, June 11th (8:00). Gus Brett's band, Ka-Tet, will open the show.

They're loud. They're pretty...and they rock! They're a band of four women who play exclusively Led Zeppelin songs in a style that is...smokin'!  The drummer, Clementine, said she and guitarist Gretchen Mann, who had played with her in AC/DShe (an all-female ACDC tribute band), had so much fun learning the Zeppelin songs that they decided to form the group Zeparella. Nila Minnerock, a longtime member of Clementine's first band, Bottom, another all-female group, is the bass player, and singer Anna Kristina rounds out the San Francisco band. "We started out learning the songs as exactly as we could, but when we play live, we go off on tangents," Clementine said. "Musically, it is so much fun, and the songs have so much room to move around in them we can still be us."  And the crowd, no doubt, likes to watch them move around.  "The audience is always so awesome with us," she said. "We've accumulated a group of die-hard fans who travel wherever we play."

Mann doesn't play a double-neck guitar like Jimmy Page, but she does use a bow. Kristina's singing voice sounds like a mix between Robert Plant and Heart's Ann Wilson. They play songs from nearly every Zeppelin album.  Clementine, who formerly went by the name Phyllis Rudd, said her experience with AC/DShe helped prepare her for Zepparella.  "AC/DShe gave me a real precision that goes well with (the drumming of Zeppelin's) John Bohnam," she said. "People talk about the power of him, but the grooves are amazing. I know he was really influenced by Motown. I really hear it in the "Lemon Song".  I try to make it really groovy."
