Robert Plant was looking and sounding great borrowing from a wide repertoire of songs from his solo material, Band of Joy and what is arguably the best rock and roll band ever, Led Zeppelin. Robert Plant's band, the Band of Joy, came out with a self titled album last September on Rounder Records. The band features Robert Plant on vocals and harmonica, Patty Griffin on vocals and guitar, Buddy Miller on electric guitar, Darrell Scott on mandolin and acoustic and pedal steel guitar, Byron House on bass and Marco Giovino on percussion.
Robert Plant sang Led Zeppelin hits Tangerine and Ramble On, Rock & Roll and Houses of the Holy, Led Zeppelin hits.

While on the mellow side compared to a Led Zeppelin show, the mood was upbeat and rocking nonetheless with hints of folk, the Band of Joy covered Ella Fitzgerald's Satisfied Mind. Besides the 2011 Robert Plant and the Band of Joy tour dates below, they just been confirmed to perform at the Wanee Music Festival this April in Live Oak, Florida.
