How to honor the legacy of a band deemed sacred? To tread on holy ground is perilous, and must be done with the intent and spirit of a disciple—Pay attention to the intricacies of the magic, explore the far ends of the innovation, strive for ever-growing ability, and let the purity of the love for the music drive it all.

The musicians of Zepparella came together through a common passion for the music of Led Zeppelin. Armed with the desire to incorporate the vocabulary of their heroes into their own, they decided to dive into the music.

Nearly five years have passed, and Zepparella continues to develop. The musicianship grows as they dig deeper into the wealth of challenges, and the stage show gets ever more transcendent as the relationships between the players tighten. Anna Kristina (vocals), Gretchen Menn (guitar), Nila Minnerok (bass) and Clementine (drums) bond in a way that is palpable to the audience, and this connection gives them reign to explore their own improvised magic within the framework of Zeppelin's mighty songs.

Everywhere they go, the Zeppelin love washes in waves out of the doors of the venues. Followers recount the number of shows they've seen, and the regulars notch 40, 50, over 100 shows on their belts, traveling between states to see the shows.

The band has released two live albums. The debut, Live at 19 Broadway, was released on Bonny Boy Records in the Bay Area in 2005. A Pleasing Pounding was released on the great indie rock label What Are Records? in 2008. The next one is on the horizon.

Daniele Gottardo
Daniele Gottardo was born on 26 August 1983 in Rovigo, Italy and he is a young Italian talented guitarist and composer. He starts playing guitar for pure change when he was 14, inspired by his father’s red Fender Stratocaster which is still his favourite guitar. In the long run, painting – his first form of expression – turnes into music.

At the age of 19 he realized for “ Playgame Music “ an instructional DVD, based on his own personal 8 fingers tapping technique, entitled TAPPING.

He then graduated at an Italian Music Academy and continues today his study as self-touch man. His main guitar influences are Charlie Christian and Yngwie Malmsteen.

In 2004 Daniele starts his experience as lead guitarist of the international pop singer Alexia and up to 2008 he takes part to intensive gigs among conventions, television shows, touring in Italy and abroad ( Malaysia, Canada, Croazia, Slovenia and Switzerland).

From the age of 21 he teaches electric guitar in several Italian Music Academies and schools. Currently he is an electric guitar teacher for MMI-Modern Music Institute and teaches in different Italian regions, where he also helds specialization courses, approved by Frank Gambale. He is engaged with different workshops and clinics around Italy, too. His video on YouTube “Come sei veramente” was inspiring the contest “Reinterpretazione di Giovanni Allevi” at the MEET Show in Milan.

Daniele is collaborating since 2005 with Italian Guitar Magazines, dealing with issues on instrumental technique, chromatic harmony and transcriptions works. These are published in his own educational column.
