The Best of Janis Joplin & Jimi Hendrix will honor two rock immortals in Annapolis on Friday, November 23, 2018. Produced by the Newmyer Flyer production company, this tribute to Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix will have you on your feet. This performance will feature some of the best singers and musicians in the D.C. area. The group endeavors to deliver performances worthy of the music icons, legendary albums, and eras they honor.
Hailing from Port Arthur Texas, Janis Joplin fell for soul and blues as she listened to Southern radio. In the mid-1960s, she moved to San Francisco and teamed up with the psychedelic blues group Big Brother and the Holding Company. Their Cheap Thrills album showcased her amazing voice on “Piece of My Heart”, “Ball & Chain” and “Summertime”. Joplin later formed bands to deliver the hits, “Move Over”, “Try” and “Me & Bobby McGee”. Her unforgettable live performances and charisma made her a future Rock & Roll Hall of Famer. Mesmerized by her passionate singing, Joplin became the first female singer to popularize the blues to millions.
Jimi Hendrix took the world by storm in 1967 by releasing Are You Experienced, an incredible introduction of his guitar mastery and songwriting excellence. Arriving with the introduction of FM radio, the album quickly grabbed the attention of rock fans. “Purple Haze”, “The Wind Cries Mary”, and “Manic Depression” were hits that made Hendrix a name. The intensity of his live performances was unparalled. Astonishingly, Hendrix’s follow-up albums, Axis Bold As Love and Electric Ladyland, were even better as they allowed him to make a total exploration of his musical vision.
