Former Quiet Riot drummer honors John Bonham on 29th anniversary of his death

When Frankie Banali, former drummer of Quiet Riot, was booking his gig at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, Calif., he must have had John Bonham on the brain. The promotional material for tonight's gig says:
"I am particularly excited about performing a set of Led Zeppelin music with a group of musicians that know how to deliver this music. Joining me for the set will be Chas West (The Jason Bonham Band) on vocals, Mitch Perry (Edgar Winter Group) on guitar, Sean McNabb (Great White) on bass and Edward Harris Roth (Glenn Hughes) on keyboards.

"September 25, 2009 will be the 29th Anniversary of the passing of Led Zeppelin's mighty John Henry Bonham (31 May 1948 – 25 September 1980) and the Led Zep Set will be performed in his memory and dedicated in his honor."
Another site of mine, "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History," today marks Bonham's passing.

Also tonight is an act that has been touring for some time. I caught a show in South Florida last December. Randy Jackson, who was singer of the rock group Zebra, along with a rock band and arranger-conductor Brent Havens, join the Virginia Symphony at the Harbor Center in Portsmouth, Va., tonight at 8 to perform Windborne's Music of Led Zeppelin.
