Description: Jimi Hendrix documentary filmmaker and promoter David Kramer returns to B.B. King Blues Club & Grill to present his seventh annual Jimi Hendrix Birthday Tribute Concert. It's hard to believe Jimi Hendrix would have been 70 years old this year! This year's lineup of performers includes:
Randy Hansen - Without a doubt one of the premiere Hendrix afficionados on the planet, Randy Hansen has been paying homage to Jimi Hendrix for over 30 years.
Leon Hendrix - Brings the VooDoo to the table! "I never stood in Jimi's shadow, Jimi kept me in the shade," says Jimi's brother Leon.
Gil Parris - Grammy Nominated Guitar Virtuoso has backed people like Joe Cocker, Dr. John, Bobby Caldwell, and Diane Schur just to name a few.
Ducks Can Groove - Direct from Sweden, this band always does justice to the Hendrix catalogue. Lead guitarist Stefan Edfeldt's Hendrix drenched solos lean toward the direction Hendrix was headed in 1970 with a funky jazz fusion as exemplified in their last two CD's of original material.
Andre Lassalle - The musical Director for the evening has recorded with Miles Davis, performed with members of P-Funk, Vernon Reid, Bobby Womack, Don Covay, the Ghetto Fighters, Buddy Miles, Frank Marino, etc. He presently tours with Burnt Sugar.
Patrick Stanfield Jones - From Teaneck, NJ, growing up neighbors with the Isley Brothers, Patrick has played guitar with the Isley Bros. and Buddy Miles, as did Hendrix himself.
