Experience HendrixMarch 29, 2014
Presented by BandFuse: Rock Legends, the eighth edition of the celebrated Experience Hendrix Tour brings together a diverse group of musical greats paying homage to the abiding genius, music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix.
This year’s line-up ranges from blues icon Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, the innovative Dweezil Zappa, left-handed blues rocker Eric Gales, Texas guitar gods Doyle Bramhall II and Eric Johnson, funk legend Bootsy Collins, Mato Nanji [Indigenous], and, from Serbia by way of Memphis, Ana Popovic. The rhythm section, as always, includes bassist Billy Cox, the only player, apart from Jimi Hendrix himself, who was part of both the Band of Gypsys and the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Chris Layton, the drummer who, along with the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, was a founder of Double Trouble.
The tour offers multiple opportunities for performers and audiences to witness unique collaborations among the participating artists who will perform their favorite Hendrix signature songs including “Little Wing,” “Fire,” “Purple Haze,” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return).”
