CAMBRIDGE — The MidShore’s only noncommercial community FM Station, WHCP, is bringing world-renowned Lez Zeppelin to Cambridge for WHCP’s 6th Annual “Whole Lotta Love” Spring Gala on March 13.

“It’s only fitting that in the Year of the Woman WHCP will bring the best female musical virtuosos performing the most venerable hard rock for the ages,” said Mike Starling, WHCP founder and general manager.

The band has gained unanimous critical acclaim as one of the most exciting live acts around, becoming the first female rock act to pay homage to Led Zeppelin and garnering rave reviews across the board. They stay true to the musically audacious spirit of the original, delivering the legendary rock band’s blistering arrangements and monstrous sound note-for-note at sold-out frenzied shows around the world.

Lez Zeppelin has been featured on the BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, MTV, VH-1, FOX and radio shows worldwide, such as Sirius XM and NPR. The group’s first studio album, “Lez Zeppelin,” was produced by legendary producer/engineer, Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix).

Led Zeppelin founder Jimmy Page said, “They played the Led Zeppelin music with an extraordinary sensuality and an energy and passion that highlighted their superb musicianship.” Spin magazine dubbed them “the most powerful female rock band in history.”

Mat Snow of RocksBackPages said “. . .right now, they are the most exciting rock band in the world.”

Lez Zeppelin was founded by lead guitarist Steph Paynes and features Marlain Angelides as lead vocalist, Joan Chew on bass and keyboards, and Lessa HarringtonSquyres on drums. Their latest album, “The Island of Skyros,” was released in 2019 and features a string section.

Doors at 447 Race Street will open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at whcp.org – $60 admission includes catered dinner by Ava’s Pizzeria and Wine Bar, cash bar, and a silent auction. Proceeds benefit nonprofit Cambridge Community Radio, 101.5 FM.
