Kashmir: The USA Premier Led Zeppelin Tribute Band doesn’t simply cover songs in its portrayal of the British rock gods––it completely immerses itself in the role of each band member. As Robert Plant’s doppelganger, singer Jean Violet rocks the notorious frontman’s signature curly locks and confident, bare-chested stage persona as he flashes full-frontal bellybutton. Guitarist Andy Urban causes double takes with his impression of Jimmy Page, wielding a hefty double-neck guitar and extracting solos from thin air with his Theremin. Rounding out the band’s lineup, Felix Hanemann pulls off the punctuating bass lines of John Paul Jones, and Paul Cooper punishes drumheads as John Bonham.
Like a diabolical understudy, the band nails the look and sound of Led Zeppelin with pinpoint accuracy as it plays through a checklist of greatest hits, including “Stairway to Heaven,” “The Immigrant Song,” and “Whole Lotta Love.” They also partake in their heroes’ showy theatrics, such as playing guitar solos with a violin bow, flirtatiously dancing with microphone stands, and following hobbits into Mordor.
“A Paramount All-Talking Picture” starring Maurice Chevalier and Claudette Colbert drew great public fanfare when the Paramount Theater debuted in 1930. Then known as the Peekskill Paramount Theater, and owned by a subsidiary of mega-studio Paramount Pictures, the Westchester County Landmark stifled Great Depression and World War II woes as a grand movie house for decades. After shopping malls and TV thwarted its status as a movie house in the ’70s, the palace recently reemerged as the Paramount Theater and now attracts top-name live performers. Lovingly renovated to its original 1930’s sheen, the theater sports new carpet, refurbished vintage theater seats, hand painted ceiling canvas, and opera boxes.
