About the Concert
Saturday, Nov 26 at 7 PM
The Apollo presents a special concert celebrating rock legend Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix‘s star was born on the Apollo stage when he became an Amateur Night winner in 1964. He followed his Amateur Night win with additional appearances at the Apollo as the lead guitarist for The Isley Brothers, and as a sideman for Little Richard, King Curtis and Wilson Pickett in 1964 and 1965. After The Animals ("We Gotta Get Out Of This Place") played the Apollo, their bassist Chas Chandler met with Hendrix, and in September, 1966 they headed to England—with Chas as Jimi‘s new manager and formed The Jimi Hendrix Experience that same year. The Jimi Hendrix Experience released the iconic debut album Are You Experienced in 1967.
