In The Led features Chas West (The Jason Bonham Band/Lynch Mob) on lead vocals, Sean Colligan (Bonfire, Led Zepagain) on guitar, Mark Ludmer - AKA Mark Ledmor (Bleeding Deacons, Deepest Purple) on bass, keys, bass pedals, and background vocs, and Mike Nieland (The Police Experience) on drums. Premium veteran musicianship & track records, attention to detail, and magical improvisational performance traits are just a few of the elements that In The Led draw upon to deliver a solid and entertaining Led Zeppelin concert experience. The band puts their heart and soul into every performance. Chas West is undoubtedly one of the closest rock singers to the actual original Led Zeppelin family, having toured with the Jason Bonham Band in their heyday from 1995 thru 1997, performing Led Zeppelin favorites to die hard fans all over the world. Sean Colligan has put a great deal of time into emulating Jimmy Page, as a former member of Led Zepagain. He delivers the look, and sound, with the sparks of energy that satisfy even the most hard core Led Zeppelin and classic rock fans. Mark Ludmer and Mike Nieland bring the solid backbone and glue necessary to pull off the tight grooves comfortably, while remaining loose enough to project the spontaneous nature of a truly jam filled show. Both have early roots in marching bands as teenagers, while experimenting with improv rock and blues bands during the late 70's and 80's.
