KISS THE SKY
JIMI HENDRIX :
A musical icon, electrifying performer, hit song-writer and prolific artist. He is largely considered the greatest guitarist of all-time! Jimi Hendrix carved an immortal memory into modern music. He surely deserves a truly authentic tribute to his legacy.
THIS IS IT... KISS THE SKY! - The Definitive Jimi Hendrix Tribute! Through meticulous detailed re-productions in every aspect of look and sound in re-creating Jimi Hendrix’s most classic concerts & landmark stage show performances, KISS THE SKY is boldly presenting the world’s most historically accurate Jimi Hendrix tribute show EVER!
KTS is fronted by virtuoso guitarist and former Columbia recording artist, Jimy Bleu, and backed by a cast of world-class touring musicians from the NYC metro area whose combined resumes are astonishing; recording and performing with major music stars such as: Pearl Jam, Aretha Franklin, LL Cool J, Teddy Pendergrass, James Cotton, John Mayall, Billy Joel, Lady Gaga and more. KTS musicians are so 'EXPERIENCED' that all 3 of Jimi's remaining former bandmates and living legends (Billy Cox, Juma Sultan and Jerry Velez) have each played on stage along side KTS performers. Most especially, Jimy Bleu, is the longest running Jimi tribute specialist in the world and even tours with former Hendrix Bassist, Billy Cox and his Band of Gypsys Experience.
