AN EVENING OF ORCHESTRAL LED ZEPPELIN & THE WHO

PERFORMED BY MICHAEL WHITE & THE WHITE

FEATURING THE SYMPHONY OF ROCK STRINGS


On Saturday, August 17, 2019 Michael White & The White featuring The Symphony of Rock Strings will perform an evening of Orchestral Led Zeppelin & The Who at The Rockpile in Toronto.

This musical 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 this legendary music re-imagined.

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.

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.

This isn’t the first time Michael and his band have performed Orchestral Led Zeppelin and The Who. Toronto radio station Q107 has presented Orchestral Zeppelin at the Danforth Music Hall, the CNE Bandshell and with the Richmond Hill Philharmonic Orchestra. All of these shows were sold out! They even played across canada with the Vancouver Metropolitan Symphony in 2012.

“Performing songs like Kashmir, Stairway To Heaven, Won’t Get Fooled Again and Behind Blue Eyes with a rock orchestra is inspirational”, White declared.

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 where he 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 would 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. Don’t miss this show!
