I can’t wait to see NEPA’s newest rising jam/rock band SPUD in person. 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!
Don’t miss out! Jamie & I are raising money to help local families fighting pediatric cancer with our non-profit 501C Nicky’s Celebration, Inc (named after & in honor of my late son NICKY Wayne Sorbelli, who lost his battle with blood cancer at 10yrs old).

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 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
- 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
- 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
If you like this song/video please check out my other content. I do lessons and videos on guitar, ukulele, bass guitar, and cigar-box-guitar fretted or slide.

What have I been doing for fun during the Covid-19 pandemic? I’ve been polishing up my USA Gibson, Dean, Fender, & Martin guitars, Dunlop Johnny Winter pinky slide, cry baby & delay effect pedals, violin bow & bow rosin – & some of Led Zeppelin’s greatest hits & most requested songs – all in preparation for starring as the guitarist of a Led Zeppelin tribute band born in Key West & the Florida Keys in a movie about “The Making of a Tribute Band in the Florida Keys.”
Seeing this picture of me at a show before the covid-19 pandemic & it’s causing the shutting down of the Florida Keys’ music venues, & having not done a show in public in what seems like forever, I am very anxious to be back in that element – with a drum kit behind me, smoke machine at my side & guitar in hand!! Marathon Country Club, Marathon Florida, here we come!!! – as the Key West Led Zeppelin Tribute Band
