Jimi Hendrix 50th Tribute Set for October 21

Date: 10/21/2016
From: 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Kiwanis Park in Old Alabama Town

Fifty years ago, the bassist for the rock group The Animals decided to leave the band and try his luck at becoming a talent scout, manager, and record producer. The ambitious young man, named Chas Chandler, ran into an extremely talented guitarist who he took under his wing with the intention of making him a success in Europe. He formed a band around the young guitarist and called it the Jimi Hendrix Experience – and the rest is history.

In recognition of Chandler’s vision, and more so in honor of Hendrix, who became one of the most influential guitarists the world has ever known, the Spike Graham Orchestra will perform a tribute show October 21 at Kiwanis Park in Old Alabama Town.

The Hendrix At 50 show will focus on Hendrix’s music and style, but will also include some different versions of some songs.

The second half of the show, Spike Plays Spike, will feature old and new tunes by SGO.

The music will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free, but donations to ARMS are encouraged. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a night of great music.
