The Best of Janis Joplin & Jimi Hendrix
The Best of Janis Joplin & Jimi Hendrix
Two of music’s immortals are honored in this show from Newmyer Flyer paying tribute to Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. Janis Joplin hailed from Port Arthur Texas where she fell in love with the deep blues and soul she heard on the radio. Arriving in San Francisco in the mid 60’s she joined forces with the psychedelic blues band Big Brother and the Holding Company who released “Cheap Thrills” which contained her mesmerizing performances of Piece of My Heart, Ball & Chain and Summertime. She formed other bands to better serve the music that she felt, which yielded more hits like ‘Move Over’, ‘Try’ and ‘Me & Bobby McGee’. Her legendary live performances and wildly charismatic personae cemented her legacy. Audiences were spellbound by the passion she brought to every song. She was essentially the first rock-mama and brought the blues to millions. There really hasn’t been one like her since.

Jimi Hendrix burst just like a supernova on the world stage in 1967 when he released “Are You Experienced” a mind-blowing display of guitar virtuosity and songwriting genius. It was an instant sensation and coincided with the advent of FM radio. Soon, ‘Purple Haze’, ‘The Wind Cries Mary’, and ‘Manic Depression were blasting through the airwaves and stereos everywhere. Hendrix’s electrifying live performances were second to none and even in an era full of legends, like Joplin, he was somehow peerless. Hendrix followed his debut with the even better ‘Axis Bold As Love’ and then ‘Electric Ladyland’, an epic double album that fully explored his musical palette. This show will tribute the best of each of these iconic artists recorded work, featuring smash hits, career bests, and deep cuts all performed by 20 of D.C.’s finest musicians.
