Stratocaster Masters (tribute show)

Witness the incredible music of 2 Stratocaster Masters: Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix recreated in this double bill tribute show.

New Zealand's only Jimi Hendrix Tribute band: The Hendrix Project leads you through Hendrix's legendary back catalogue. Performing electrifying versions of songs from: Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold As Love, Electric Ladyland and Band of Gypsys plus some other great tracks thrown in for a jam as Jimi was so fond of doing.

You'll love The Hendrix Project's renditions of Hey Joe, Purple Haze, Foxy Lady, Voodoo Chile and all the other Hendrix songs you know - and some you don't! From Monterey to Woodstock and beyond.

Just like the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Hendrix Project is a 3 piece line-up. It features UK musicians Phil Roberts (vocals, guitar) and Glen Child (drums), plus kiwi Steve Sussex (bass).

Next, Tony Painting and The Power will blaze through their epic Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute, playing the best of SRV from Texas Flood, Couldn’t Stand the Weather, In Step and more with stunning swagger and twang.

Tony Painting and The Power have become firm favorites with the music loving public and musicians alike. Fronted by UK born guitarist and vocalist Tony Painting, their special brand of blistering guitar based boogie blues/rock is a real show stopper.

Painting's UK roots are well known having spent the better part of the 70s, 80s and 90s as a working musician touring the many pubs and clubs in the UK. Later he was invited to either support or play with some of the UK’s best known artists including: UB40, Jools Holland Big Band, Ozzy Osborne, Ruby Turner and Robert Plant.
