Greta Van Fleet play a rescheduled Sold Out Show at Hollywood's Ford

“It’s the best Rock N’ Roll I’ve heard in twenty F*ckn years!”, exclaimed Sir Elton John about Greta Van Fleet’s sound.  Hailed as the next Led Zeppelin, even Robert Plant directed some publicity their way when asked about any new bands that he liked.  Named after an elder in their “Little Bavaria” town of Frankenmuth, Michigan, it’s hard to believe that this quartet barely ranges in ages between twenty-two to twenty-six years old.

Fresh off their performance at this year’s Coachella Music Festival, the band sold out two shows at Hollywood’s John Anson Ford Amphitheater in April of this year. Back to back performances took their toll on Josh Kiszka and he fell ill before the Tuesday April 17th show, which had to be rescheduled to June 24, 2018.

For fans, the wait was well worth it.  The night’s performance was spectacular.  Every member of the band played as if they were veteran rockers.  Even Sam Kiszka wowed with his keyboard playing on a Hammond organ that delivered that Good O’le Rock N’ Roll.  Danny Wagner’s electrifying fury was so intense that he knocked down one of his toms during his drum solo.  Jake Kiszka’s guitar playing sounds like that of a mature Blues pioneer, but his showmanship as he shredded with the guitar behind his back clearly demonstrated his youth and energy. The acoustics at the Ford Amphitheater are very good and carried Josh’s powerful and unique voice brilliantly.
