Jimi Hendrix Tribute Act
BOLD AS LOVE was formed in 1995 by TJ "baabaa" JOHNSON with the intention of playing the music of one of his favourite musicians of all time, no other than the great Jimi Hendrix. The name was taken from one of Hendrix' songs of the same name.
The idea was to play the music in a very true and authentic way, being very mindful of not using gimmicks to perform the songs as the songs are good enough to stand up on their own merit.
Many people make the mistake of playing Hendrix from a rock angle, which is why it never works, because Hendrix was not a rock-thinking musician, although he played great rock music he always approached his music from a rhythm and blues and soul angle, that's why the songs have so much feeling which is what we try to convey with this project, and we think we do them justice.
BOLD AS LOVE perform the great songs of Jimi Hendrix in a very loose and yet very tight manner, they have a lot of fun with the songs. Although they stick pretty close to the original arrangements it's not so close as to be a carbon copy.
BOLD AS LOVE play gigs all over the United Kingdom at the moment and are looking forward to doing their first tour of the continent of Europe and beyond very soon, so watch this space.
