Musician and artist, Graham Alexander, has rebooted the classic RCA/VICTOR Record Label and created a museum in honor of this birthplace of the music recording industry.
A part of Jimi Hendrix musical legacy that truly get's over-looked is his dedication to the BLUES.
KTS has performed special "BLUES OF HENDRIX" sets for Blues festivals and clubs across the country. Much of the set comes from the Martin Scorsese documentary segment CD on Jimi and the posthumous compilation album of Jimi's blues and covers called Jimi Hendrix: BLUES which went platinum in 1994 on MCA records.
Here are some images from the 2016 USA TOUR stop in Chicago when KTS was honored to play our special blues set and more on the stage of fhe premier blues club of Chicago... BUDDY GUY'S LEGENDS!
