From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get the Led out (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album, GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants – a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.

Get the Led Out’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless.”

GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and PAC venues across the country, such venerable club venues include Penn’s Peak, Electric Factory, Best But Theater, HOB Boston, Fillmore Charlotte and Ram’s Head Live, Baltimore. PACs including the Sovereign Performing Arts center, Count Basie Theater, Filene Center at Wolf Trap, Kravis Center, Durham Performing Arts Center, Lynn Memorial Theater, the Palace in Greensburg and many more. The band makes their third consecutive appearance at Red Rocks in Denver in the fall of 2016!

Dubbed by the media as “The American Led Zeppelin,” Get the Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band. Whether it’s the passion and fury wit which they deliver the blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems, it’s their attention to detail and nuance that makes a Get the Led Out performance a truly awe-inspiring event.

Weddings, quite simply, are a blast!

From the desk of Erica Krystek, Event Coordinator at the Bayfront Convention Center:

I’ve been working in the hospitality industry for more than thirteen years. While I never set out to be an event planner, it was the best career choice I could have made because I love what I do! I’ve been at the Bayfront Convention Center for more than two years now, and in that time I’ve planned hundreds of events such as weddings, holiday parties, corporate meetings, galas and showers.

I’m lucky enough to work with capable and talented staff at the BCC. We all come together as a team to fulfill our client’s expectations. By the time an event takes place, we’ve already reviewed the details as a team, ensuring everything is in order and the staff is ready at a moment’s notice.

My favorite aspect of planning a wedding is definitely the food! I believe the food at a wedding is an unexpected way to tell the story of the bride and groom. Our culinary team loves to tailor and customize menus, so I always encourage my couples to incorporate personal stories, family recipes and cultural dishes or ingredients into their food offerings.

The best piece of advice I can give to a bride and groom is to be sure to take one moment, at some point in the evening, to step back and observe what’s happening. Take that one moment to soak it all in and really witness all of your friends and family having an incredible time celebrating your marriage. Believe everyone when they tell you your wedding day flies by, because it certainly does!
