The Band

The band started in 2004 in Sonoma County, California. Now we play from San Francisco to Reno, Nevada.

LEAD VOCALS

CRAIG BLACK AKA MEPPS WAYHEAD

"Craig's voice brings the sounds of Paul Rogers, Robert Plant, Getty Lee and Phil Moog to life in a way few vocalists can."

Craig Black AKA Mepps Wayhead started singing at age 12 in a school production of HAIR.

He founded Black Zeppelin in 2005. It was his dream to gather the best local rock musicians he could find, to create a band that specialized in the 70's and 80's hard rock genre.
