AfroZep, a Chicago-based band that blends African rhythms in paying tribute to Led Zeppelin, will perform at 9 p.m. today at Stickyz Rock ’n’ Roll Chicken Shack.

Admission is $7.

Founded in 2009, AfroZep does some tunes the band characterizes as “straight mash-ups of Fela Kuti and Zeppelin, others are Zep tunes but set to original grooves based off the music of artists such as Tinariwen, Thomas Mapfumo and Franco, and others are stripped down Zeppelin arrangements injected with the pulse of African drumming.”

The group is led by Wilson (guitar and vocals), Marshall Greenhouse (drums) and Ryan Behling (bass and lead vocals), plus a rotating cast of percussionists, and rock and jazz horn players.

On Friday, the club will host a local favorite, Benjamin Del Shreve, at an 8:30 p.m. show. Del Shreve is based in Fayetteville and describes himself as “a rocker, poet, bohemian and musician.”

Cover charge is $7.
