Robert Plant & The Band of Joy

Opening Act: Bahamas

Band of Joy was the name of one of Robert Plant's very first bands, accompanied by a certain tub-thumper of note named John Bonham. The name is a nod to an era when this particular British singer cut his chops singing songs by previous legends, and above all expressed the freedom of a 17-year-old with his own legendary future ahead of him. Because Band of Joy is an expression of freedom, the singer's own songs, and his versions of songs by others (Los Lobos, Low, trad songs...). However, can we truly speak of "other people's" songs when the unique voice and incredible interpretive skills of this former Led Zeppelin singer give them such wonderfully renewed life? And while we're speaking of legendary groups, we can be fairly certain that Mr. Plant will indulge us with new versions of some of those songs... An extraordinary pre-opening concert by an absolute legend who plays Montreal far too seldom. Co-presented by Evenko.

André Ménard (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
Having attended the showcase performance for the incredible new disc “Band of Joy”, it’s clear to me that this evening with Robert Plant will go down in history. Along with magnificent producer-arranger Buddy Miller on guitar, this consummate artist goes right to the heart of Americana, tossing into the mix a little of his “Zeppelinian” past and a few other magic ingredients.
