Wayne Sorbelli’s Key West Led Zeppelin Tribute Band “Whole lotta love” @ Florida Keys Country Club

https://youtu.be/exIENUP0GOo

Greetings my Led Zep loving friends!!! Here is a video one version of my Key West Led Zeppelin Tribute Band consisting of me, Wayne Sorbelli on guitars & effects, David Bryce Warren smashing the drum kit & sharing lead vocals with Karri Daley. Francois Gehin of MadDog Productions is covering our bass guitar duties as well as using his 9 string bass to add keyboards, flute, and other textures to our show.

Hers a little “ Whole Lotta Love”. I hope you enjoy the middle improve section (I don’t own a theremin but think using three delay peddles, violin bow, wah, pick and finger nail scrapes was a fair substitution). Pleas let me know what you think in the comments below pls. Suggestions or constructive criticism are as welcome as any positive feedback. I am always trying to grow better. Thank you.

I apologize for the sound quality being poor but It was recorded on my wife’s cell phone from the room we were recording the audio to the board for the filming or the movie our friend Cliff Rydel is making – documenting the making of a tribute band in the Florida Keys, starring Mike Allman Greg’s Son with of course an Allman

brothers Tribute band as well as a few other treats like Pink Floyd, Iron

butterfly, Eric Clapton & my Led Zep band.

Thanks for watching my little cover band work it’s way up towards a real tribute band over the next few months as I prepare for a Zep tribute show at the Key West theater on July 31st 2021 (the theater will be back to full capacity by then!! Hooray!!!)

I’ll be taking audition vid clips for lead vocal position – male or female or “whatever” is cool – email me your background info & a quick demo video.

I’m am teaching private in person, or online Skype, FaceTime & Zoom students but using my other time to record some songs and make some lessons and lifestyle videos. If you enjoy the content, please subscribe and share – many thanks in advance !

I took a walk to a secluded beach while writing a song i’ve been calling “The Lemon Family Tree” and then played it while sitting in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s about making the best with what you’ve got – you know the classic lemons into lemonade – or my metaphor of bagging cow pellets & selling as fertilizer lol

Lyrics :

  • We all know, the story of Family Lemon
  • Made their fortune, with drinks, stands and sellin’
  • they Didn’t sit around cryin, bout what Santa didn’t bring

jammin

  • If life Hands you, a pile of cow pellets
  • bag it up man, bag it up and sell it
  • somewhere right now, someone’s got a garden to grow

jammin

repeat

I say my Led Zep act has “grownup” & is a teenager now. I started out with the idea to do a legit zep tribute band while playing in the Key West Rock Band called DWC STRAIN (the house band for the restaurant/music venue) themed after it’s multi-season famous HOTROD muscle car TV show. David Warren was drumming AND lead singing for that band – and we played an increasingly high majority of Led Zep sets upon the sheer amount of bulk requests.

Now I say “It” (my KEY WEST Led Zep tribute band idea) had grown into the Florida Keys Led Zeppelin Tribute Band (thanks to Cliff Rydell for imagining, executing & producing this movie about the Making of a real tribute band in the keys) This helped with my band’s transition into adolescence. Meaning it’s grown from simply the Key West Led Zeppelin Tribute Band to a full scale FLORIDA KEYS Led Zeppelin tribune band.

Like the Vikings we sing about in our opening song – “The Immigrant Song“. I plan on “claiming” the Keys territory with my Zeppelin Act by working hard enough to become the best at doing it!!

I can’t wait to meet you all again when it’s all grown up and playing somewhere like Key West Arena shows in the near & continuing future.

Sneak peek of raw film footage of “The Making of a Florida Keys Tribute Band” Pt 1 of ? Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin, Iron Butterfly, Eric Clapton & Pink Floyd starring Michael Allman, Wayne Sorbelli of Island Guitar,,,

Michael Allman (Greg Allman’s son raised by Greg & Cher) & Wayne Sorbelli at the Marathon County Club on April 11, 2021 during the filming of the movie “The Making Of A Tribute Band in The Florida Keys”

It was a typical day in paradise – sunny, low 80’s, cool Spring April breeze coming off the Atlantic Ocean, birds singing, sea gulls abundant and in the distance, as my beautiful wife & life partner Jamie drives us up the Marathon Country Club driveway mmmmmm we could hear the crew setting up the stage and sound system – I’m not going to lie – at that point I felt that little butterfly in my tummy – the good one not the other bad one lol – and I took it as a sign of anxious strength (like waiting at the staring line for the staring gun to go off) – and I knew it was going to be an excellent day.

The day was April 11, 2021. It was the filming date of the performances being used in the movie, “The Making of a Tribute Band in the Florida Keys” starring Michael Allman, Greg Allman‘s son of the Allman Brothers band, costarring yours truly Wayne Sorbelli of Island Guitar AKA Bone Island Music in Key West and a host of other great Florida keys musicians like Ray West (who was charged with finding the “right” local musicians with adequate skill levels for the highly demanding musical & technical tasks on hand, & with the willingness & time to do it) and he did a fantastic job!!! Thanks bother Ray!!!

Ukulele Slide Ukulele by online Uke teacher Wayne Sorbelli in Key West

Greetings Wayne here! I sure hope everyone is staying inside, brushing the dust off their ukuleles and guitars and getting busy on them while doing your part to say inside and stay safe and help stop the spread of COVID19 virus. Unfortunately all UKEOUT jam sessions, ukulele open mic nights, and the Monthly Green Parrott Ukulele Orchestra Meeting Night is canceled APRIL 2020 and until notice. Pleased check back.

In order to pass the quarantine “state-of-settle-in” time easier and maybe even with some benefits and true life satisfaction and overall happiness increase, i’m pulling out the old guitars and musical instruments and taking advantage of the time instead of sitting around crying about being locked in.

I’ve got live 1-on-1 SKYPE ZOOM and FACETIME lesson spots open 30 minute or 1 hour. Now is abetter time than ever to give it a try or pick up where you left off – weather it was right before quarantine or not since you where in college – time to get back to it – its the perfect time .

I teach any size Ukulele, banjolele, Uke Bass, acoustic electric or nylon string guitar, Bass guitar, or Cigar Box Guitar or any other stringed home made guitar type instrument. I specialize in slide guitar in regular standard tuning listen to and love everything from Abba to BBKing, Hank Williams to ZZTop, Metallica to SRV and all between.
