The “Experience Hendrix” tour is always a treat. It’s been here before, but they always make it better each time. These special concert performances present legendary artists who join together to pay homage to Jimi Hendrix. Now in its second decade, the tour celebrates the musical genius of Jimi Hendrix by bringing together a diverse array of extraordinary musicians. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s debut album Are You Experienced (released on May 12, 1967). Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. was formed by the late guitarist’s father, James “Al” Hendrix to oversee his legendary son’s legacy.
This year’s lineup includes Billy Cox (original bass guitarist for Jimi Hendrix’s “Band of Gypsys”) living legend Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde (of Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society) guitar virtuoso Kenny Wayne Shepherd, blues guitarist Johnny Lang, the one and only Dweezil Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Double Trouble” drummer Chris Layton, Mato Nanji from Indigenous, Henri Brown, Noah Hunt and the Slide Brothers.
Silver Legacy put on the bash in the swank Reno Ballroom. In attendance were most of the local guitar legends and the masses of music fans. Ken Allen took these pictures I’m sharing here. Thank you all for supporting live music!
