Also I’m very excited to get to play with old friends & students like the legendary Ray “Stingray” Delprior, Johny Van Plant who’s coming down from Buffalo New York just to sing some Led Zeppelin with me -(thank you JVP), Spud’s Sammy, DJ Cunningham and many many more. Get there early and grab a good spot – space is limited! July 9, 2021 show starts 8pm. Get there early for meet & greet with all the players & old friends!

Please HELP spread word of our Led Zeppelin Tribute & ParrotHead Masquer benefit show at The Key West Theater July 31, 2021.

Thank you everyone. It’s time to help some little Key West children/angels & their families that need some relief/resources. I love ALL of you. Thank you for any & all help spreading the word of the cause & this benefit show to support the cause. Having lost NICKY our 10yr old son after fighting blood cancer so bravely for a year that seemed like 10, this is top shelf priority for me & my family. I like to kick cancer in the teeth every chance I get.

Wayne Sorbelli KW Led Zeppelin Tribute Band

It’s all so painful for Jamie & I & my dear daughter Leela – but at the end of the day – we’ve either helped, or we didn’t – but no matter the pain, the mental low LOW points, the tears, envy, jealousy, survivor guilt, guilt of the NEVER ending urge to block my bad memories in ways that are very destructive & debilitating to my mind body & soul & destructive to my family unit – I AM In this for life – I’ll help fight cancer & those fighting as long as I can in life & til death and perhaps even beyond if I can figure out how.
I’m on the front line for GOOD!!!!!!

Wayne “Led” Sorbelli’s Key west Led Zeppelin Tribute charity fundraiser opening for Parrot Head massacre at Key West Theater to help local children fight CANCER!!

Greetings family, friends, peers, brethren, brothers, sisters, students, & anyone who loves to ROCK OUT for a good cause— or anyone who hates cancer as much as I do!!!!! !!!

My Led Zeppelin Tribute band is opening a show at the Key West theater on July 31st, 2021 called (Bustin’ out of Quarantine) & the band we are opening for is called the (Parrothead Massacre) & they do some heavier music mixed with some comedy & tongue-in-cheek stuff with their professional quality covers of everything from MotorHead to Metallica all mixed with a spectacular sense of humor.

I’ll be using different musician friends to play different songs of my set. So far I’ve got Mark UVA Gambuzza of Parrot Head Massacre singing one, Rebecca Morse Whitten, Johnny Van Plant & David Bryce Warren singing a couple songs each, David Bryce Warren & Jannik Khaer doing some drums & percussion, Francois Gehin & Carter Moore playing some bass guitar, Island Guitar’s piano teacher James KingIII on keys, Key West artist/musician Zach Jones on harmonica – and more songs and artists are coming together everyday.

The show is a benefit for my Wife Jamie & I’s non-profit 501c in memory of our son NICKY Wayne Sorbelli, who lost his battle with blood cancer at age 10 after a hard & very long year’s battle.

My family now is forever part of the war on cancer, it’s cure, its prevention & working towards early detection abilities (which would increase treatment success rate exponentially)

— but most importantly we help those families still fighting the battle right here, right now!

We are warriors now. We never had the chance to say “no I’m not signing up for this”. Jamie & I didn’t get to choose any of this – but here we are in a battle of the flesh, mind, & soul!!!! Helping families & their children with their battle.

I promise to forever fight this disgusting evil cancer until death!! Please Help Us?

Thank you for Caring & sharing.

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

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.
