Hendrix Tribute “Kiss the Sky” closes Troy’s Rockin’ on the River Season August 7th
Fronted by virtuoso guitarist and former Columbia recording artist, Jimy Bleu, and backed by world-class touring musicians, Kiss The Sky is a Hendrix tribute with the look & sound of Jimi’s bands, The Experience & The Band of Gypsys. The show uses authentic replica costumes and the same musical gear Hendrix used. Three of Hendrix’s most historic concerts are reproduced: 1967’s Monterey Pop, the 1970’s Fillmore’s Band of Gypsies & 1969’s Woodstock. It should be noted that all three of Jimi’s remaining former bandmates and living legends (Billy Cox, Juma Sultan, and Jerry Velez) have each played on stage alongside Kiss the Sky’s musicians.
Opening Act Soul Sky is a dynamic, bluesy, jammy, rock band with excellent guitars and an awesome rhythm section. Music that will move your body and soul. Featuring the talents of Jeremy Walz, Tom Dolan, Josh Bloomfield, Joe Mele and Mark Emanatian.
