KISS THE SKY
Kiss the Sky is a tribute band that does everything they can to not only replicate the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but also replicate their looks in performance. The power trio features Jimy Bleu on guitar, AJ Hager as Noel Redding on bass and Ted Edwards as Mitch Mitchell on drums. Of Hendrix, Bleu says, “"Jimi Hendrix was possibly the most electrifying performer of all time. It is obviously an honor and a challenge to play his part. I connect most strongly with his all out approach at the Monterey Pop concert when the Experience exploded onto the international music scene. I try to bring that same energy to every KTS show. His memory deserves it." (www.kisstheskytribute.com)

Cline has received many accolades including Rolling Stone anointing him as both one of 20 "new guitar gods" and one of the top 100 guitarists of all time.
Cline's most recent release, Lovers, out now on Blue Note Records, is a collection of "mood music" over 20 years in the making.
Beyond Wilco, he performs in a duo project with jazz guitar prodigy Julian Lage in addition to a quartet, The Nels Cline 4 (that includes Lage plus bassist Scott Colley and drummer Tom Rainey), plays with CUP, a duo with wife and musical collaborator Yuka Honda (Cibo Matto), leads The Nels Cline Singers (featuring Scott Amendola, bassist Trevor Dunn and Cyro Baptista), and plays with Stained Radiance (an improvisational live project with performance painter Norton Wisdom).
A few of the other musicians with whom he has performed and/or recorded include: Black Walnuts Yonder (Mike Watt, Nick Reinhart, and Greg Saunier), Yoko Ono, Jeff Gauthier, Thurston Moore, Mike Watt, Carla Bozulich, Vinny Golia, Marc Ribot, Tinariwen, Julius Hemphill, Charlie Haden, Wadada Leo Smith, Lydia Lunch and Lee Ranaldo.

New Jimi Hendrix Album 'Both Sides Of The Sky' Out March 9
On March 9, Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, proudly release Both Sides of the Sky, a dynamic new Jimi Hendrix album featuring 13 studio recordings made between 1968 and 1970'10 of which have never before been released. The album will be released on multiple formats including CD, digital, and as a numbered 180 gram audiophile vinyl 2LP.
Both Sides of the Sky is the third volume in a trilogy of albums intended to present the best and most significant unissued studio recordings remaining in the music legend's archive. Beginning with Valleys of Neptune (2010), which earned top ten sales rankings in fifteen countries (including a top position of #4 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart), followed by People, Hell and Angels (2013) which peaked on Billboard's Top 100 album chart at #2. Billboard's coveted number one singles ranking went to 'Somewhere,' the album's lead track and the legendary guitarist's highest ever US singles chart achievement. This third release is anticipated to complete the spectacular recording event in epic fashion. 'Since Experience Hendrix began its restoration of the Jimi Hendrix music catalog in 1997, our goal has been to present these important recordings to Jimi's fans in the best possible quality. We are excited about achieving that. We've also been intent on generating album releases which present this amazing music in its proper context,' explains John McDermott, one of the album's co-producers, together with Janie Hendrix and Eddie Kramer.
