Last Friday night the jam supergroup quartet comprised of Marco Benevento (Garage A Trois, Marco Benevento Trio, The Duo), Joe Russo (Furthur, The Duo), Scott Metzger (WOLF!, Gene Ween) & Dave Dreiwitz (Ween) gathered at the Brooklyn Bowl under the moniker pulled from a classic Led Zeppelin lyric in “Stairway to Heaven”

 

Doing exactly what they do, both night’s in Brooklyn were perfect examples of the aptitudes of these fine young men on their respected weapon — or instrument — of choice.  Proficiently playing through loose covers of largely obscure tunes from Led Zep’s large catalog, complete with both heavy improvisation and adherence to the song structure and maintenance of its integrity, the quartet pulled off what few could.

 

It was, at it always is, a great night of music when these four get together under the moniker, which unfortunately has become an all too rare of an occurrence.
