Hendrix at Home

Discovering Hendrix at Handel & Hendrix in London

Post 109: Rock on!

Jimi Hendrix tribute band Jimi Hendrix tribute 2 Jimi Hendrix tribute 3As an organisation we have started building relationships with a whole raft of different communities and people that previously we wouldn’t have come across which is making life really entertaining and giving all of our learning curves a good boost. One such instant happened the other week when our new friends from Britain Rocks! invited us to a Hendrix tribute gig. It was on the anniversary of Hendrix’s death and I can’t believe I am only getting around to blogging about it now, because it was really was a great night. 

The gig was at the Troubador Club on the Brompton Road and it is a annual occasion to help raise funds for “Action for Brazil’s Children.” The crowd were brilliantly eclectic which meant that we seemed to fit into the mellay perfectly. We were entertained by the Jimi Hendrix Tribute; Are you Experienced band. The first set, had a London feeling, was great, foot tapping and warmly appreciated but clearly some drinks were had and by the time the second set started, with a more Woodstock vibe, things really heated up. The crowd went wild and people were singing along and dancing on tables and chairs yet still, I think, really appreciating the music. Fun was had and my cool factor increased significantly.

Enthusiasm: High
Progress: Feeling the vibe
Quote: “Sorry I only had a banana for lunch.”





About Sarah Bardwell

Handel & Hendrix in London Trustee and leading the team that is reinstating, in the adjoining building, Jimi Hendrix's London flat to open to the public. Quirky twist of chance meant that baroque legend Handel lived at 25 Brook Street in the 18th century and that rock legend Hendrix lived next door in the 1960s.
