Greta Van Fleet
@ Echo Beach
World Tour 2019
Are they bringing something back? Are they proposing something new? Are they just filtering the classics with some unique young and fresh point of view? Who cares?
Of course, we can see the resemblance but isn’t this what we have been expecting for years already? It’s been a while since the last time I felt a new band was coming out of the box without feeling rough on the edges. Greta Van Fleet gives music fans exactly what we wanted. Sexy rock and roll to fly, to yell, to explore and to let our body scream one more time.
Two nights completely sold out, 30 thousand fans at Echo Beach, Best Rock Album Grammy Award 2019, a promising future career and a just confirmed South American tour with Metallica. Who are these kids?
Greta Van Fleet, formed in Frankenmuth (Little Bavaria), Michigan in 2012 by vocalist Josh Kiszka, guitarist Jake Kiszka, bassist Sam Kiszka; and drummer Danny Wagner had a normal childhood away from big cities and very close to the classic vinyl of their parents.
Often compared with Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant himself cited them, linking similarities with the album Led Zeppelin 1 and referring to Josh as a beautiful small singer. The band, on their side, have always accepted that they studied LZ and their great admiration for the legendary group, nevertheless, this was never their intention, “…. that is just how we sound”.
My recommendation is to listen to this impressive band who are destroying every stage around the world. These guys are slowly becoming a massive light of hope to be the ones in charge to start bringing the blues and classic rock n roll back to the front lines of our generation and the near future.
By the way, they are between the ages of 22 and 19.
