Cactus with Kashmir
Coming off a very successful US tour and the release of its first studio album in 10 years, Black Dawn, the time has come for founding member and world renown drummer Carmine Appice to re-energize and rebuild Cactus. The band was once heralded by critics as America’s answer to Led Zeppelin.
“Nearly five decades after I formed this band, the time has come to re-invent Cactus once again,” says Appice, who also still drums for Vanilla Fudge, The Appice Brothers, and The Platinum Rock All Stars. Adds Appice: “The music remains the same and Cactus is still a ‘hot and sweaty’ band. The level, quality and consistence of the band’s musicianship is as strong as ever.”
Opening for Cactus will be Kashmir. Kashmir is a very entertaining show bringing only the best of Led Zeppelin to their fans. Kashmir seeks to re-create the experience of a 70’s Zeppelin show utilizing authentic, vintage stage gear, costumes, and special effects, with great attention to detail in a non-pretentious way.
