ABOUT The PreZence
The PreZence is an authentic Led Zeppelin tribute experience. Founded by Sal Demeo 14 years ago, The Prezence has since become a national act and is delighted to announce that they have completed taping for a much anticipated new TV series called “The Clash of the Tributes.” Slated to air on multiple cable platforms in the Fall of 2021, this exciting new series promises to bring an international television audience down memory lane and The Prezence is proud to be representing Led Zeppelin as part of it.
The band consists of four members committed wholly to re-creating the sights and sounds of a Led Zeppelin concert experience for the fans who come out to see them.
Sal DeMeo (a.k.a John Bonham) The Brooklyn native, current Hudson Valley resident, authentically re-creates the sound and power of his idol from behind the drum kit. Having been at it for decades, Sal pays tribute to Bonzo with loving attention to detail.
Ted Chmura III (a.k.a. John Paul Jones) Mr. Chmura, hailing from Springfield, MA, deftly handles the task of re-creating the multi-instrumental mastery of the virtuoso musician referred to by Zeppelin fans as “the quiet one.” Ted’s various talents, including vocals, comprise an invaluable contribution.
Chris O’Loughlin (a.k.a.) Robert Plant As a Bronx NY teenager growing up in the ’70s, Chris was exposed to Zeppelin at a young age; and after having seen the very final performance of his favorite band, his young life was forever changed. A guitarist by musical birth, the singer brings a certain passion for the songs of Zeppelin while exuding that Robert ‘Percy’ Plant vibe.
Kevin Slover (a.k.a.) Jimmy Page Mr. Slover brings to bear his four decades of live experience in his portrayal of the revered and mysterious dark mage of the double neck guitar. With a commitment to excellence and authenticity, Kevin re-creates not only the sounds and licks of the founding member of Led Zeppelin, but the Hudson Valley native brings also, the kinetic energy of Page on the stage in performance.
