Now in its ninth year, the Tribute to Benefit annual concert to raise money for Levine Children’s Hospital paid homage to Led Zeppelin on Thanksgiving Eve at the Neighborhood Theatre. Organized by Justin Fedor, the four-hour concert featured some of Charlotte’s talented musicians from a variety of genres. Being that the last two years were virtual, it was great to get back into a live setting this time around.

From “Whole Lotta Love” and “Going to California,” to “Dazed and Confused” and “In My Time of Dying,” the night was packed with hit after hit thanks to solid performances from Ancient Cities, The Doughboys, Falllift, Crystal Fountains, Charlotte Bluegrass Allstars, Matt Minchew, Revelwood Mission and a set-closing superjam highlighted by Taking Back Sunday’s Adam Lazzara on vocals. You can also find a great video of Fedor’s band Ancient Cities performing “Communication Breakdown” on YouTube.

It was a solid blend of rock, folk and bluegrass that worked seamlessly thanks to the timeless music of Led Zeppelin and an impressive lineup of Charlotte talent.  
 
One can only imagine what Fedor might have in store for the 10th annual event next year.
