Imagine Elvis Presley playing "Moby Dick". Did your heart just skip a beat? Are you feeling all shook up? Maybe your left eyebrow shot upwards toward the ceiling. Think of the quintessential sounds of our time. Can you picture them combined into one mega-act? Imagine listening to Led Zeppelin, Elvis and Bob Marley at the same time. Is that even possible? OH, IT IS! And you won't need to pull out any old records or get mixmaster-y with your turntable.
Believe you me, the boys of local cover band Dread Zeppelin have created something so unique that you'll have to see it for yourselves. Dread Zeppelin has been putting a new spin on these classic sounds for the past 20 years. They have even earned the favor of Robert Plant himself. Check out The Gazette's interview with Elvis impersonator and frontman Greg Tortell, also known as Tortelvis. You will learn about their favorite local venue, where to get the best Elvis stuff, and why the ladies still can't resist a man singing "My Way" in a custom-made jumpsuit.
But wait, THERE'S MORE! Get your Elvis sighting on. This week is your LAST CHANCE (well almost) to WIN TICKETS to see Dread Zeppelin at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Friday, November 27th (the day after your food coma). All you have to do is email your name and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday, November 20th. Here's a little teaser of what's in store for the lucky winners...
And while I'm speaking of mash-ups, for all of you winos and foodies out there, be sure to try Chef Albert's Crush Wine Bar & Restaurant in Lake Forest. If you need a venue to romance your honey (house vocalist Paco will do the serenading) or a place to kick off your shoes and indulge yourself after a long work week, Crush is the perfect local spot. Chef Albert Constandine has created a menu that combines American cusine with European flair, and he also offers 200 wine selections. Read all about it in our November cover story! Bon appetit!
Live music. Entertainment. Food. Wine. Table for two please! What could be more golden?
