Jimi Hendrix tribute rocks Concerts on the Green on July 22
July 15, 2014
Randy Hansen brings his ongoing tribute to Jimi Hendrix to the Concerts on the Green stage July 22 at the Issaquah Community Center.
Picnicking kicks off at 6 p.m.; bring a blanket. Music is from 7-8:30 p.m. As many as 500 revelers attend, come early to stake out your spot.
Hansen has been touring the globe as one of the foremost Hendrix tribute bands since the 1970s. In fact, he’s one of the few performers officially recognized by the Hendrix family. Hansen has played alongside some of the industry’s greats, from Stevie Ray Vaughn and Steve Miller to Paul Rodgers and Herbie Hancock.
The concerts, at 301 Rainier Blvd., are presented by Issaquah’s Parks & Recreation Department and the Issaquah Arts Commission, in collaboration with the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah. Kiwanis sells refreshments during the show, including hotdogs and hamburgers.
The next concert features big band favorites brought to you by Portage Bay Big Band on July 29.
The concerts are free, but donations are accepted. The money is put toward the next season.
