ADVANCE TIX NO LONGER AVAIL ON EVENTBITE - TIX STILL AVAIL ON TICKETMASTER OR BB KINGS BOX OFFICE NIGHT OF SHOW - A Tribute To THE ROLLING STONES, LED ZEPPELIN & JIMI HENDRIX Featuring ROLLING STONES KARAOKE, LED BLIMPIE & VOODOO CHILD
Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 8:00 PM - Sunday, May 25, 2014 at 1:00 AM (EDT)
Audiences who see this band aren't sure which they can't believe more - their eyes or their ears. Not only does the band nail every classic Rolling Stones riff, howl, and thump, but the members could be stunt doubles for Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ron Wood. The band features a revolving cast of rough-and-ready players led by twin guitar crossfire that is reminiscent of Richards and Wood, plus a galloping rhythm section to match Watts and Bill Wyman. The band also sports a shimmying lead vocalist who helps to guide the guest singers through each song. Rolling Stones Karaoke is great at performing straight-up Stones tribute shows too, but the band is best known for its high-energy karaoke sets that let audience members take center stage.
Led Blimpie is a New York City based American band known for its note-for-note live recreations of the entire Led Zeppelin catalog combined with the energy and excitement of playing Zeppelin Live! With a singer that also plays guitar and harmonica and a regular cast of guest performers, the members of this band are much more than mere impersonators. Led Blimpie truly captures the sound of Zeppelin's cherished recordings to the delight of their ever-growing fan-base. Not posers or impersonators, these die-hard rockers bring their own style and humor to their shows which can last up to four hours!
Straight out of New York City & fronted by Jimy Bleu (who has been carrying on the Hendrix tradition through direct musical lineage), the 3-piece band presents an unbeatable high-energy stage show, augmenting much of Hendrix' material with today's Rock, Funk, Caribbean, Jazz, Worldbeat & Hip-Hop rhythms. In the words of Bleu....."If you want to know Hendrix's discography, his various guitars, his clothes, his girlfriends, his toothpaste, then you can read the bios, view the docs or talk to those who played with him & were close to him.........but if you really want to understand the deep mysticism of his music & his early stage show, then all roads lead to me~!" - See more at: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=3870#sthash.F7G3p52y.dpuf
