Playing the Palace

THIS IS IT… KISS THE SKY! – THE WORLD’S GREATEST JIMI HENDRIX TRIBUTE.  KISS THE SKY boldly presents the world’s most historically accurate Jimi Hendrix tribute show ever! Featuring meticulous detailed re-productions in every aspect of look and sound, this show re-creates Jimi Hendrix’s most classic concerts & stage performances.

Kiss The Sky features virtuoso guitarist and former Columbia recording artist, Jimy Bleu. Bleu is the longest running Hendrix tribute artist in the world. He boasts Jimi’s landmark left handed, behind his back playing virtuoso guitar skills, and tours with former Hendrix Bassist, Billy Cox and his Band of Gypsys Experience.

Lullaby Requiem

In the history of classical music, there has never been a major orchestral and choral requiem written as a memorial for the children we have lost to violence! It was with this thought that Eric Lewis began composing the Lullaby Requiem.

The Lullaby Requiem is conceived as an eleven movement symphony. Six movements are currently completed, the other 5 awaiting funding that will allow the project to continue and move forward into production.
