The Deal

Experience Hendrix

  • The Experience: This all-star concert pays tribute to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix.
  • Billy Cox: The bassist met Hendrix in 1961, when they were both serving in the Army, and the two played together in three storied bands—King Kasuals, Band of Gypsys, and Cry of Love.
  • Buddy Guy: The legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy-winning blues artist has influenced countless musicians, including Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and yes, Jimi Hendrix.
  • Zakk Wylde: Wylde was only 19 years old when Ozzy Osbourne recruited him as his band’s lead guitarist. He went on to form Black Label Society, a heavy metal act known for its no-frills, shredded sound.
  • Jonny Lang: The blues guitarist’s trademark is his unique, gravelly voice, a talent that has earned him a Grammy award and tours with the likes of Buddy Guy, the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, and B.B. King.
  • Also Performing: Kenny Wayne Shepherd; Eric Johnson; Rich Robinson; Doyle Bramhall II; Chris Layton; Mato Nanji; Henri Brown; Noah Hunt; Tony Franklin; Scott Nelson; Tim Austin

Riverside Theater

As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO’s Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium’s drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.
