A Tribute to the late and legendary Jimi Hendrix famous for such tracks as Foxy Lady and All along the Watchtower.
I have been to see this Tribute Band 3 x before and they are fantastic. Without doubt the best Tribute I have seen and I would say the ultimate level a tribute act can ever aspire toward. The band obviously revolves around Jimi who excels in the part. They are a really fun act with lots of audience involvement and the frontman is a wonderful entertainer who builds up his act to a dramatic finale. The Band featured a few years back in a BBC documentary about Tributes, this is what the Editor of that documentary said about them -
"when John Campbell ( Jimi ) was up on stage, we glanced at each other in disbelief as he went so deftly and with such brio from The Star Spangled Banner into Purple Haze. We were buzzing for hours afterwards...never had such a good time working on anything!"
My plan is to get an early bus to Derby ( the Red Arrow take 35mins - leaves the Victoria Centre at 6.00pm ) and costs around £4. Once in Derby I will run a mini pub tour, a couple of places in the City centre, before making it over to the Flower Pot to get there at 8.00pm. The gig itself will kick of at about 9.00. The FP is a great venue and worth just going to Derby for on it's own. You may make your own way if it pleases you. The last fast bus is 10.50 so you will miss a bit of the act if you want to catch it. There are late night buses back but they do take a lot longer sadly, around an hour, I will likely stay for one of these though. I will bring a time table so that people can see what suits them best.
I would encourage car sharing so if your happy to give somebody a lift then offer in the comments. Car Parking is available very near the venue.
Generally you can get tickets on the night but it would be best to book to avoid disappointment. Tickets are £9 from - http://www.rawpromo.co.uk/
if you want to sample some of the act before hand you can get a taster on their website http://www.areyou-experienced.co.uk/main.htm
You don't have to be a big fan but if this kind of music at all appeals that I guarantee you will enjoy it. Anybody with an interest in the Guitar will be blown away by the quality of playing which is second to none.
