We know from recent experience that the group of musicians who call themselves Bustle In Your Hedgerow can play Grateful Dead music to perfection, and that they also excel at the music of The Band. But it was as an annual Led Zeppelin cover band that Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, Scott Metzger and Dave Dreiwitz first mastered the art of melding classic rock with their own jazz/fusion/rock/jam style. And now, Bustle has existed as a project for more than ten years. On Friday night at Brooklyn Bowl, it was the second night of this year’s two-show Bustle run and the band’s energy was clear from the outset. The material speaks for itself, but its the ability of the Bustle quartet to bring their own special interpretation that creates the magic that these musicians can impart to well-worn songs. In the first set, it was the stretched out “Heartbreaker” that stood out primarily because of Metzger’s extended guitar solo and the set final “Over The Hills” was a classic example of primo ensemble work. In the second set, we were impressed with the spot-on versions of “Kashmir” and “Song Remains The Same”, both of which are streaming below. Also remarkable was the extended jam segment and seamless segue between “In The Evening” and “Four Sticks”, two entirely unrelated tracks from different segments of the Zep’s career which Bustle interplayed perfectly. We expect that this outstanding quartet will continue to play the Zep for the foreseeable future, but we’re also on the edge of our seat to see whatever classic band they reinterpret next.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser Cards mounted on the right side midway on the floor and mixed with an excellent board feed. The mix of the two sources really came out well, and we’re pleased to report that the sound quality of this set is superb. Enjoy!
