Fred Zeppelin return to The Flowerpot in Derby on Friday, November 6, to perform their tribute to Led Zeppelin.

During their time together the Fredz have had the honour of Led Zeppelin’s frontman Robert Plant attending three of their gigs and John Bonham’s son Jason even jammed with them on stage.

According to one of Kerrang! magazine’s readers polls, Fred Zeppelin are among the top ten best live bands to see. Quite an achievement, as they were the only tribute band listed in any category.

Saturday sees veteran rock and blues aces Eddie And The Hot Rods put in an appearance

Eddie and the Hot Rods began life in 1976, when four teenagers from Southend on Sea got together, and playing their own style of fast energetic rock’n’roll/r’n’b, were soon a big hit on the London pub scene.

Catching the eyes and ears of the music press and the major record companies, they were soon signed up by the legendary Island Records and went on to have three hit albums and three Top 40 UK singles including the Top 10 hit Do Anything You Wanna Do.

Support comes from one of the hottest rhythm ‘n’ blues combos in the Midlands, The People’s Republic Of Mercia.

Finally, on Thursday, November 12, there will be a gig from Samantha Fish and Laurence Jones.

The talented blues rock performers are currently touring in a show called Double Trouble.

Doors open at 8pm and admission is £13 for Samantha Fish and Laurence Jones, £8 for Fred Zeppelin and £12 for Eddie And The Hot Rods.

Advance tickets are available from The Flowerpot and RAW Promotions, as well as online at
