Electric Lady Big Band

Electric Lady Big Band: 50 years of Hendrix’s masterpiece. A 16-piece, all-star big band featuring guitarist/arranger Denny Ilett recreates Electric Ladyland 1968’s double album. This is the album that established Jimi Hendrix as a visionary. This groundbreaking and iconic work, which was released 50 years ago, will be performed at the same club where Jimi heard his incredible guitar for the last time.
