Kiss The Sky Tribute - The Jimi Hendrix RE-Experience
Kiss The Sky Tribute - The Jimi Hendrix RE-Experience
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.

KISS THE SKY IS
Visual

* The ONLY Hendrix tribute with a full cast of spot-on look-a-like & sound-a-like performing musicians not just for JIMI but also representing ALL of his band members in both the EXPERIENCE, the BAND OF GYPSYS and throughout his entire career.
* The ONLY Hendrix tribute wearing custom made 60’s wardrobes that Jimi and his bandmates actually really wore at his most historic concerts.

* The ONLY Hendrix tribute with stage sets of replica gear and backline rigs accurate to Jimi's most classic concerts.

Sound

* The ONLY Hendrix tribute gaining the spot-on classic HENDRIX sound LIVE through replica 1960's era instruments and gear that Jimi himself made famous:
MARSHALL AMP WALLED STACKS
LUDWIG DRUMS
FENDER STRATOCASTER GUITARS
FX: VOX, WAH-WAH, UNIVIBE, OCTAVIO, FUZZ FACE & more!
Authentic

* The ONLY Hendrix Tribute that can faithfully re-produce 4 of Hendrix’s most historic concert sets:

the BAND OF GYPSYS @ the Fillmore 1970
the famous WOODSTOCK of 1969
& his last tour, the Cry of Love @ ISLE of WIGHT 1970



Adding to the visual authenticity of KTS is that just like Jimi Hendrix, so to Jimy Bleu is a left-hander! One of the few in the business and as Hendrix was famous for playing with passion and power; with the guitar over his head, behind his back, between his legs and with his teeth… Jimy Bleu also has all the moves and a reputation for electrifying performances!!! Hendrix made Rock - n- Roll history with iconic stage show performances that literally lit the guitar and the musical world itself on fire. KTS carries that torch of legacy & strives to re-make & re-create Hendrix history every show!

Playing such hits as: FIRE, HEY JOE, FOXY LADY, VOODOO CHILD, PURPLE HAZE, MACHINE GUN, LITTLE WING, WATCHTOWER and more...

KISS THE SKY gives audiences of today the closest 'RE-EXPERIENCE' possible of what it was like to have seen Jimi Hendrix at the peaks of his incredible career. KISS THE SKY is the musical and visual event that is hands down the most historically accurate and authentic Hendrix tribute EVER!
Strange Brew (Cream Tribute)
Strange Brew (Cream Tribute)
Strange Brew, the CREAM Tribute is the World's Definitive tribute show dedicated to the Ultimate 60's Pchydellic Rock Band... CREAM!

60's Era Replica wardrobe, Era Exact Replica Instruments and note for note superior musical renditions...by look-alike musician performers to Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker..allow CREAM TRIBUTE to RE-CREATE the essence of CREAM!

STRANGE BREW is quickly becoming the definitive tribute to CREAM, rock music's original SUPER GROUP!
Cream was formed with the best talent that Britain had to offer in 60's musical virtuosity, with legendary Ginger Baker on drums, the incredible Jack Bruce on bass and lead vocals, and the man they called 'God' on guitar...Eric Clapton. Their rise was meteoric...bright, fast, and powerful, but short-lived. While the group burned out before the 60's were over, their music has stood the test of time. White Room, Sunshine of Your Love, Crossroads, Badge and many more monster 60s hits in addition to a supreme live show performing reputation have left a lasting legacy of the first Power Trio that blended rock, jazz, blues, and psychedelia into the standard that all other classic rock bands would be measured against.

For the first time, with stunning historical accuracy in both look and sound, a tribute to Cream has been assembled. Boasting legendary 'Fool' artwork guitars of Clapton and Bruce and Ginger's reknown double Ludwig drum kit, the signature stack of British Marshall Amps, plus authentic wardrobe that Cream actually used at their most memorable 60's shows, this band has all the requisite parts to re-play those classic concerts for today's audiences. And they have the talent...picked for their uncanny abilities to mimic Cream in both look and sound, three of Philadelphia's best musicians have set out to re-create history.

Peter Scott Ruben as Eric Clapton:
Musical Director and bandleader of the top-rated PSR Orchestras and Dance Bands for decades in the Philadelphia tri-state area, Peter is possibly better known nowadays even more for his successful singing career fronting his "Sinatra & Friends" tribute and Bobby Darin shows. However, it was in the 70's as a teen-age phenom rock guitarist that he first garnered musical fame in Philadelphia and beyond, performing with bands and musicians in top venues throughout the east coast, such as Trump Taj Mahal, Harrah's, and Caesars in Atlantic City, the Plaza and the Hilton in NYC, and the Academy of Music, Society Hill Playhouse, and World Cafe Live in Philly. He has also performed at our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. in the White House for the President. Peter, now a master guitarist, returns in this project to his roots and deep love of classic rock, combining his unique talents of pristine vocals and precisionary guitar skills to channel his inner Eric Clapton. With Peter's physical similarities to Clapton also on board, it is an amazing re-creation of 'Slowhand' in his prime with Cream. In addition, the music gene runs deep in the Ruben family, as Peter's father Harold was also a bandleader for years, and his son Jesse Ruben, a Berklee grad, is garnering rave reviews as an indie singer-songwriter.

Dion Paci as Jack Bruce:
One of the most highly sought after session musicians in the Philly market, Dion Paci is a master multi-instrumentalist on guitar, bass and drums who performs non-stop both in studio and for live shows with a seemingly never ending succession of projects. A Berklee College of Music alum, he was a founding member of the award winning music series 'Mad Cow' with G. Calvin Weston, member and producer in the progressive rock/jazz-fusion all-star group 'As Human' and a performing member of Michael Schrieve's(Santana) Spellbinder. Dion currently performs and periodically tours with Seattle based band Willow and the 'Chase the Magic Dog' project while still teaching master musician clinics throughout the country. Dion also hosts popular weekly jam sessions in the Philadelphia area and maintains a working list of highly notable musicians in the rock, hip-hop, R&B and jazz worlds such as: Bernie Worrell (P-Funk, Talking Heads) John Medeski and Billy Martin (MMW), Jamaaladeen Tacuma (Ornnette Coleman, James Blood Ulmer), Mark Guiliana (David Bowie, Brad Mehldau), DJ Logic, Mutlu (Amos Lee), Marco Benevento (the Duo, Mike Gordon), Owen Biddle (the Roots), Skerik (Critters Buggin, Les Claypool), Gerald Veasley and many more ...

Steve Iannettoni as Ginger Baker:
The youngest member of this 'Philly Power Trio' Cream creation, Steve Iannettoni is another super multi-instrumentalist talent who currently performs in not one, but two of Philadephia's most popular young bands - as a drummer, backing the classic rock jammer, CRISBIE, while also the bassist and a vocalist in the indie rock group, SONNDER. A 2011 choice award winner in the Berklee School of Music HS Jazz competition, Steve's star is on the rise and his red hair flare makes him a perfect fit for Ginger!
