John Campbell, of Are You Experienced?
MUSIC ALMOST 43 years have passed since Jimi Hendrix became the symbol of the fabled 1970 IW Festival and there is to be a tribute to the guitarist in Ryde.
Tribute band Are You Experienced? is being brought to Coburgs, in Union Street, by Nigel Smith, who used to manage Ryde Theatre.
The band, led by talented guitarist John Campbell, has performed on the Island on five previous occasions.
Campbell, who has gained a reputation for faithfully following the rock icon’s guitar riffs and solos, will play renditions of classics, such as Purple Haze, Wild Thing and Voodoo Chile.
Are You Experienced? will be supported by the Island’s Reg Against the Machine, who will play songs that were performed at the 1970 IW Festival.
The show is next Friday, March 22.
