GET ZEP! is thrilled to return to the legendary Cohoes Music Hall after a rafter-shaking sellout in April. This time around, the group will be conquering Led Zeppelin IV in its entirety, plus a second set of Zep classics. GET ZEP! is a NY supergroup consisting of the members of world-renown power trio SUPER 400, along with acclaimed vocalist Sean Matthew Whiteford. The group performs the songs of Led Zeppelin, widely regarded as some of the most powerful music in Rock n Roll history. Since their frst show in the summer of 2022, GET ZEP! has performed to feverish crowds in New York’s Hudson Valley and Capital Region.
SUPER 400 has toured the US and Europe many times on the strength of their original music. Their stage shows have been cited as ‘brain-splitting’ and ‘mind-blowing’ by the press. Mayor Harry Tutunjian declared February 25 as ‘Super 400 Day’ in Troy NY. In 2022, the band was inducted into the Capital Region Music Hall of Fame, and in 2022 and 2023, Super 400 was given the award for ‘Best Rock/Pop Band’ at the Thomas Edison Music Awards.
Sean Matthew Whiteford has been a professional performer, producer, composer, and international vocal coach for over 15 years. He is vocalist for SMW & The House Party Band, along with powerhouse rock bands, Jessie’s Girl & Party Rock, and with Virtual Journey Band on YouTube, where his performances have been praised by several members of JOURNEY. He is known for his title role performances in Jesus Christ Superstar, Hedwig & The Angry Inch, as well as Rock of Ages and Rocky Horror. At 17 years old, he had founded his rock and roll theatre company, Castaway Productions (est. 2005). He is also the creator of Girlfriend From Hell: The Musical, which DC Metro Theatre Arts praised “has the makings of a rock-musical cult classic.”
Here is journalist Mark Hudson’s take on the Get Zep! Experience: “They inhabit the music of Led Zeppelin with an astounding and bewildering ease, as only true devotees can. Kenny Hohman on guitar doesn’t just mimic Jimmy Page. He plays those iconic riffs and solos perfectly while throwing in some extra licks of his own like sly curveballs from a knowing pitcher. Bassist Lori Friday keeps everything rooted with a lush carpet of funk, always rock steady while she executes those tricky runs. And Joe Daley has his drums set on stun, channeling the late John Bonham’s blast furnace yet intricate approach. Special mention to Sean Matthew Whiteford, who actually has to sing this stuff. Robert Plant is/was one of the most distinctive and original frontmen in rock, and Whiteford wisely does not try to imitate him, rather interpreting the songs with his own bravura spin, showcasing his impressive range and sometimes hitting notes even higher than the original!”
