After 12 years with the same line up (and having just beaten the length of time Led Zeppelin were together), Whole Lotta Led have undergone a change in line-up.

Sixteen years on from their formation, the band have recently changed their singer and drummer ad have increased to a five piece with the addition of a keyboard player.

New vocalist is Lee Pryor who has an impressive four octave vocal range which enables him to hit all the high notes, with great ease and accuracy, that Robert Plant was so famous for.

Filling the drum stool is Charlie Hart, a lifelong Zep fan, who is relishing playing the amazing drum parts of his hero John Bonham.

Last but by no means least is David Wykeham-Geroge who as well as playing keyboards will also be doubling up on guitar.

Founder members Nick Ferris (guitar) and Geoff Hunt (bass) are delighted to be working with members of equal quality and musicianship thus maintaining the exceptionally high standard of the band.

The band have always eschewed the use of wigs and costumes, instead they concentrate on the music and endeavour to perform the songs as near as possible to the original album versions.

Catch them at Frome's Cheese and Grain on February 8.
