The same hair, same poses and same costumes...The more than 400 in the chamber had an experience and clearly expressed their enthusiasm. A worthy mark of the 50 years.” Jorgen Angel, rock photographer who took the very first live pictures of Led Zeppelin. “A sincere and moving tribute by a group of excellent, nay brilliant musicians who captured the spirit of the legendary group perfectly.” Chris Welch, music journalist and author of several books on Led Zeppelin. "CODA represent the music of Led Zeppelin with passion and dedication – catch them when you can’’ Dave Lewis, The UK's number one authority on Led Zeppelin and prolific author of books about the band. “I have seen many Led Zeppelin tribute bands and CODA are the best. An excellent show!” Andy Adams, Led Zeppelin super fan and co-author of several books on Led Zeppelin. Fan quotes: "Not really a cover band, more a reincarnation. I was utterly dumbstruck when I saw them. If I hadn't already got tickets I'd get them just to see this band again. Incredible band, they really have to be seen to be believed." "The sound, the look,and most importantly the 'feel' is true Zeppelin. Pure class." "Definitively the best cover band I have ever seen. Clearly a lot of time and devotion has been given to the great, original Led Zeppelin members, and their music, epitomising them in every way. I'm blown away and will be travelling far and wide to follow this band! Rock on!"
