About The Band

The band themselves is fronted by a musician Jimy Bleu, who's actually worked with some big names in the industry like Pearl Jam, Aretha Franklin, Teddy Pendergrass, James Cotton, John Mayall, Billy Joel, and more. Kiss The Sky isn't just a cover band, but literally, a tribute act wearing custom-made clothing and the only tribute of look and sound-a-like musicians giving tribute to his music.
They've even re-produced classic Hendrix sets from the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, The Band of Gypsys show at the Fillmore in 1970, Woodstock, and the legendary Isle of Wight show in 1970. You can snag more info on the show here.
