Bustle In Your Hedgerow At The Abbey Pub 1/17

-A.S. Last week we reported the sad news that after months of hope and speculation, there would be no Led Zeppelin reunion and no new album. How does one recover from such devastating news? Bustle In Your Hedgerow.Last time we caught the Duo, Marco Benevento returned to the stage during the headlining act and was pouring champagne down their throats. At least he’s got the rock act down to go with the rock chops.

The Led Zeppelin tribute band, is comprised of the Benevento Russo Duo, Dave Dreiwitz of Ween and Scott Metzger of Rana. Anyone that has ever seen the Duo knows just how hard Marco Benevento and Joe Russo rock out together. Add the thumping bass stylings of Dreiwitz and the wailing guitar of Metzger, and you’ve got a Zeppelin tribute band that is a force to be reckoned with.

During the first set, which included a good mix of major hits and some rarities, the group showed they had chops. Metzger showed why he could play Jimmy Page and the control he has over his instrument as he ripped through “The Ocean.” Benevento channeled Robert Plant through his keys to play the vocal lines of “Out on the Tiles.”The headbanging of the Zeppelin afficionados in the crowded Abbey Pub agreed that Metzger could hold his playing the controlled chaos that is Jimmy Page.

After a short set break, Bustle In Your Hedgerow returned to the stage. Perhaps all too appropriately, “Dazed and Confused” began the second set. Russo showed why he’s the drummer and not the lead singer while attempting at the intro of “Over the Hills and Far Away.” He then showed why he was a drummer capable of taking the form of the animal himself, John Bonham, while dropping jaws with “Moby Dick.” Russo had the solo down, including the barehanded part, and then made his sticks reappear as if magic.Anybody that knows me, knows how much I like Umphrey’s McGee. The only argument I could come up with to take Kris Meyers over Joe Russo, is that Meyers can sing.

No, you can’t close your eyes and think you’re seeing Led Zeppelin while seeing Bustle In Your Hedgerow. Unless you’ve got a time machine, you’re never getting Led Zeppelin back. What you can do, is see a band that rocks hard enough to do the hardest rocking band of all time justice.

    That was the first show I’ve had to ask friends for help so we could do “too much rock for six hands.” Good lord they rocked hard.
