THE WORLDS NO.1 TRIBUTE TO JIMI HENDRIX
ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? are now in their 21st year (2017), and during that
time they have become widely regarded as one of the best tribute shows
on the circuit.
Guitarist John Campbell bears more than just a passing resemblance to
Jimi, and has drawn upon many years of playing in different bands and
exploring various styles to perfect his ‘Hendrix’ persona. When he plays
his Strat behind his head and with his teeth, it brings a smile to the
face of even the most finicky Hendrix fan.
As with any three piece rock band the rhythm section provides the all
important foundation which allows John to improvise freely.
After playing together for over 20 years, Mark Arnold on bass guitar and
Kevin O’Grady on drums are two of the best musicians around for this
job. Kevin with his busy drumming style and Mark with his solid bass
lines make up the Are You Experienced? sound.
Audience participation is always welcomed at gigs, and John inviting the
ladies on stage to join the band for “Foxy Lady” has become an almost
legendary part of their stage show.
The band like to throw in some of Jimi’s lesser known album tracks as
well as the favourites to help keep the “die hard” fans happy, but if
you’re a Jimi Hendrix fan, there’s something for everyone.
