Rock legend and Grammy nominated Lenny Holmes (formally of Parliament Funkadelic, Prince and Mutiny etc.) has created the ultimate Jimi Hendrix tribute. Formed in 2012, Hendrix Lives perform's the most accurate and captivating live show's since the Jimi Hendrix Experience toured the world during the golden age of rock and roll. . It's much more than just being a tribute. It's about touching a golden era in music. Hendrix Lives embodies Jimi, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell in their spirit, tightly-wound talent and authenticity.
Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their Experience counterparts. They have spent countless hours, days and month's perfecting the art and mannerisms of each original member.
Hendrix Lives live shows are not about simply playing the right notes, they are about aura and feeling, traveling back to the unique atmosphere the Jimi Hendrix Experience created. Each band member's mastery of authentic vintage instruments, dressed in correct Experience clothing, their compelling stage persona and distinct sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates the music, magic, and mystery of a Jimi Hendrix concert. The impact is so powerful that band members constantly hear from people who actually attended Jimi Hendrix concerts over 40 years ago say that seeing Hendrix Lives makes them feel as if they were back seeing Jimi during their younger days! Commented when joined on stage by original Jimi Hendrix Gypsy Sun & Rainbows percussionist Juma Sultan... "just like playing with Jimi"....no compliment gets better than that!
