THE GREATEST ROCK SHOW THAT NEVER WAS…

AN EVENING OF ORCHESTRAL LED ZEPPELIN & THE WHO

PERFORMED BY MICHAEL WHITE & THE WHITE

ACCOMPANIED BY THE SYMPHONY OF ROCK STRINGS


ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 08, 2019 THE MUSIC OF LED ZEPPELIN & THE WHO WILL ECHO THROUGH THE HIGH CEILINGS OF THE ORANGEVILLE TOWN HALL OPERA HOUSE, WHEN MICHAEL WHITE & THE WHITE ACCOMPANIED BY THE SYMPHONY OF ROCK STRINGS WILL PERFORM ‘THE GREATEST ROCK SHOW THAT NEVER WAS…AN EVENING OF ORCHESTRAL LED ZEPPELIN & THE WHO.


IN 2005 MICHAEL BEGAN WRITING ORCHESTRAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR SOME OF LED ZEPPELIN’S MOST POPULAR SONGS AND BEFORE LONG HE AND HIS ROCK BAND WERE PERFORMING THE MUSIC OF LED ZEPPELIN RE-IMAGINED WITH PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRAS IN THEATRES ACROSS CANADA. THE SHOW WAS SO WELL RECEIVED IN FACT, THAT MICHAEL DECIDED TO EXPAND ON HIS ORCHESTRAL SHOW BY ARRANGING SOME OF THE WHO’S MUSIC IN THE SAME MANNER INCLUDING HITS FROM THEIR ALBUMS ’TOMMY’ AND ‘QUADROPHENIA’.


THE EIGHT PIECE ENSEMBLE CONSISTS OF THE ROCK BAND, MICHAEL WHITE & THE WHITE, ALONG WITH THE SYMPHONY OF ROCK STRINGS. TOGETHER ONSTAGE THEY CREATE A MAGICAL SPACE TO SHARE WITH AUDIENCES AS THEY PERFORM NEW AND EXCITING ARRANGEMENTS OF THE GREATEST HITS OF LED ZEPPELIN AND THE WHO.


THESE ORCHESTRAL ARRANGEMENTS REMAIN TRUE TO THE ROCKIN' SPIRIT OF THE MUSIC WHILE INCORPORATING A UNIQUE SYMPHONIC SENSIBILITY THAT CREATES A CLASSIC NEW VIBE, THAT COMES ALIVE IN IT'S OWN RIGHT.


THIS MUSICAL PRODUCTION IS AN INCREDIBLE SOUND EXPERIENCE AND VISUAL EXTRAVAGANZA COMPLETE WITH A PSYCHEDELIC LIQUID LIGHT SHOW PROJECTED IN HIGH DEFINITION WITH A RETRO KALIEDESCOPE OF COLOUR BURST IMAGES DESIGNED TO TRANSPORT YOUR MIND TO AN ALTERNATE SPACE AND TIME.


THIS IS THE FIRST TIME MICHAEL AND HIS BAND HAVE PERFORMED AT THE ORANGEVILLE OPERA HOUSE AND THEY WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY THE ODSS MUSIC DEPARTMENT. “PERFORMING STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN AND BEHIND BLUE EYES WITH A YOUTH ORCHESTRA AND CHOIR IS INSPIRATIONAL”, WHITE DECLARED, “THE ORANGEVILLE TOWN HALL OPERA HOUSE HAS GREAT ACOUSTICS. IT’S A PERFECT VENUE FOR AN OLD SCHOOL ROCK SHOW!”.


AFTER BEATLEMANIA, THE WHITE WAS THE FIRST MUSICAL GROUP TO BE KNOWN AS A TRIBUTE BAND. MR. WHITE FORMED THE THE WHITE IN 1977. SINCE THEN, THE GROUP HAS PLAYED OVER 8,000 SHOWS TO OVER A MILLION FANS AROUND THE WORLD. ALTHOUGH HE HAS BEEN PERFORMING LED ZEPPELIN'S MUSIC FOR SO MANY YEARS, MR. WHITE DOESN’T GET TIRED OF IT. “I LOVE IT,” HE SAID. “THE MUSIC IS AS VITAL TODAY AS IT EVER WAS.” AT ONE RECENT SHOW IN PARTICULAR, MR. WHITE SAID THREE GENERATIONS ATTENDED TOGETHER.


WHITE'S MUSICAL CAREER HAS RANGED BEYOND LED ZEPPELIN. IN ADDITION TO RECORDING BOTH SOLO AND GROUP RELEASES FOR ATLANTIC RECORDS HE HAS ALSO RECORDED AND PERFORMED WITH ARTISTS SUCH AS NIKKI SIXX, ALICE COOPER, KEITH EMERSON, STEVE MORSE, DWEEZIL ZAPPA, STEVE LUKATHER, RICK WAKEMAN, RIK EMMETT, AND JEFF HEALEY.


ORIGINALLY FROM LOS ANGELES, MICHAEL PERFORMED FREQUENTLY IN HOLLYWOOD DURING THE MID 1970’S AND ACTUALLY MET THE WHO’S LEGENDARY DRUMMER KEITH MOON. “HE WAS A GREAT GUY, ALWAYS VERY NICE AND FRIENDLY”, MICHAEL RECALLS, “HE LIKED TO JUST HANG OUT IN THE CLUBS WITH ALL OF US YOUNG MUSICIANS. YOU READ ABOUT ALL THESE CRAZY THINGS HE WOULD DO, BUT AROUND US HE WAS DOWN TO EARTH“.


BUT ZEPPELIN HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH HIM. THE LED ZEPPELIN MUSIC HE AND HIS BAND THE WHITE PLAY IS SO TRUE TO THE SPIRIT OF THEIR IDOLS THAT THEY HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN ENDORSED BY JIMMY PAGE AND ROBERT PLANT.
