Ramble on: All-female Zeppelin tribute to rock North Tahoe

How to honor the legacy of a band deemed sacred? To tread on holy ground is perilous, and must be done with the intent and spirit of a disciple.

Pay attention to the intricacies of the magic, explore the far ends of the innovation, strive for ever-growing ability and let the purity of the love for the music drive it all.

Drummer Clementine is the founding member of Zepparella. From the beginning of her musical career, her goal has been to be onstage every night.

And that includes Friday night at the Crystal Bay Casino, when the all-female Led Zeppelin tribute returns to the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.

The pursuit of that goal has led Clementine to constantly tour the U.S. and Europe in projects as diverse as Bottom, AC/DShe, The House Of More, the Solid, Francis Bakin and Stars Turn Me On.

She tackles the best rock drumming ever written with her own emotionally powerful style, bringing the Motown influence of the John Bonham groove to the forefront.

The profound musical connection established with Gretchen Menn (guitar), Angeline Saris (bass), and Noelle Doughty (vocals) creates the bond required to do this great music justice.
