Carl Baldassarre’s Led Zeppelin Revival

Apart from being a world class expert on the art of Jimmy Page, Carl Baldassarre is a composer, musician and world-traveling musicologist. Known as a gifted guitarist and band leader, Carl has spent more than 40 years as a professional musician. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio his first band (Abraxas) received a recording contract when he was 19 years old and became a regional success. His progressive rock band, Syzygy, attained international acclaim by charting in Germany and building a solid base in the U.S. Syzygy has received critical acclaim and professional praise for 30 years.

Carl’s new band, eponymously named BALDASSARRE, can be heard on his upcoming release, Collinwood Yards. The album is an amalgam of Carl’s classical music and rock music. The 14-track musical journey was recorded at both Abbey Road Studios and Sweetwater Studios in the United States. Baldassarre will be touring North America in January/February of 2022.

Considered a polystylist, Carl is a composer-songwriter comfortable in any genre or medium. He has received recognition for many of his works including Flamenco, Celtic ballads, progressive rock and classical music

Most recently, his YouTube series on Led Zeppelin II highlights Carl’s mastery and interpretation of Led Zeppelin’s repertoire and especially Jimmy Page’s techniques. Carl has been playing and studying Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin for more than 40 years. His note and tone perfect interpretations are immensely respected.

As a musicologist, Carl is a well-studied, well-traveled historian and aesthete which enables him to bring great meaning and context to not only his work, but also to his analysis and interpretations of other great works of art, music and life in general. His immersive approach has few limits, whether it’s jumping a velvet rope to play Beethoven or Mahler’s piano or standing on the conductor’s podium of the great music halls of Europe or even sneaking a quick repose on the birth bed of someone he’s studying, Carl leaves no stone unturned when it comes to research.

Buoyed by his unrelenting youthful enthusiasm and armed with decades of incredible experience and repertoire, Carl is bringing his Led Zeppelin II revival to the stage where his band will be playing all the tracks from Led Zeppelin’s iconic 2nd album as well as other Zeppelin tracks. You can discover Carl by visiting and YouTube.

UPDATE: Peace, love and gratitude to all the fans that have sold out every show we played! This has been a word-of-mouth phenomenon that just keeps growing. We’re not wearing wigs or curating a traveling museum piece. We simply revive the spirit behind the music and provide insight into the making of Led Zeppelin’s music. Even though our initial run of shows ended last September, we’re going to do a few more shows before Carl Baldassarre has to break off for his European and US tours this spring with his band Baldassarre. So, if you’ve missed the Baldassarre Led Zeppelin Revival, you’ll have a couple more chances to see it (and if you’re a venue that wants to host us…give us a ring!).
