Jim Wootten, Bass, Keyboards , Mandolin, Guitar, Vocals
Led Zepagain multi-instrumentalist Jim Wootten comes from a very musical family that bred many professional musicians, most notably, his father Red Wootten who played bass with Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman and Woody Herman to name a few, and his uncle and aunt, world renown recording artists Les Paul and Mary Ford who had 16 top ten hits in the 1950’s. “I feel extremely blessed to have grown up in a family that was so musically inclined. It instilled in me a love for music and inspired me to pursue my own dream of becoming a professional musician. Jim’s hallmark is his attention to detail and has played in a variety of original and cover bands over the years, mainly concentrating on tribute bands over the last 13 years.“ I particularly enjoy playing in tribute bands because of the challenge of trying to replicate an artist’s music with note for note accuracy.? Jim fills the demanding role of John Paul Jones masterfully; covering bass, keyboards, mandolin, bass pedals, acoustic 6 & 12 string guitars and backing vocals. Jim’s other tribute projects include the popular southern California tributes The Long Run “Experience the Eagles? and 4 Way Street “Celebrating the Music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young?.
Derek Smith Drums and Percussion.
After receiving his degree in Illustration and Fine Art from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Derek Smith moved back to Los Angeles in 2009 to pursue a career in the arts and music. Having played the drums since he was 12 years old and worshiping music since discovering his parent`s record collection at an early age, he figured it was a good omen when his first band`s recording sessions had him working next door to KISS and No Doubt. As he says, "It was definitely quite an honor to be sharing the same bathroom with Gene Simons and Paul Stanley." Despite a lifelong devotion to a number of bands like The Doors, The Who, and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, no other band`s music quite influenced him like Led Zeppelin`s, and in particular, the drumming of John Bonham. The dichotomy in Bonham`s playing, from the ferocity with which he could attack his drums to the level of finesse, sensitivity, and discretion he could exercise, were traits that resonated greatly with Derek and connected with him in a way that no other drummer has been able to. Derek Smith has performed with Doors guitarist Robby Krieger, The Doobie Brothers, Billy Idol`s Steve Stevens, legendary bass player Phil Chen, Chas West of Foreigner and the Jason Bonham Band, Chris Wyse of The Cult, Francesco DiCosmo of Thin Lizzy and Evanesence, and many more. He maintains a website ( and YouTube channel dedicated to the work of John Bonham and other influential drummers in his life. Derek is a full-time musician and artist who lives in Los Angeles, CA.
Jimmy Sakurai
Jimmy Sakurai, Guitar, Mandolin, Theremin, Vocals We are honored and privileged to have Jimmy Sakurai on lead guitar in the role of Jimmy Page. Jimmy Sakurai is highly revered as being the closest thing to Jimmy Page even by the master himself. In October of 2012, Jimmy Sakurai was given the ultimate compliment when Jimmy Page himself attended a Mr. Jimmy show in Tokyo, Japan to see what all the buzz was about. He left that night absolutely spell bound by what he saw, giving Jimmy a standing ovation after his 29 minute version of Dazed and Confused directly from the 1973 performance in the movie “The Song Remains the Same”. Over the course of the last 35 years, Jimmy Sakurai has dedicated himself to emulating Led Zeppelin guitar god Jimmy Page right down to the minute details. He has mastered the playing style, the tone, the movements, the mannerisms and has learned every Led Zeppelin song with amazing note for note accuracy. Led Zepagain benefits from Jimmy’s presence in many ways.  His most sincere desire is to represent Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin’s music as accurately and respectfully as humanly possible. His passion is to capture the very essence of a live Led Zeppelin concert to give you the most faithful reproduction that a tribute band could possibly produce.
