Are You Experienced? are now in their 25th year and widely regarded as one of the best tribute shows on the circuit.

Guitarist John Campbell bears more than just a passing resemblance to Jimi, and has drawn upon many years of playing in different bands and exploring various styles to perfect his ‘Hendrix’ persona. When he plays his Strat behind his head and with his teeth, it brings a smile to the face of even the most finicky Hendrix fan.

As with any three-piece rock band the rhythm section provides the all-important foundation which allows John to improvise freely.

After 23 years together, Kevin O’Grady (drums) decided to retire from playing in late 2019. We’d like to thank Kev for his contribution and laughs, and wish him all the best for the future.

In December 2019, we welcomed Phil Carter into the fold and look forward to the next chapter of Are You Experienced? We’re sure that he will put his stamp on our sound.

Audience participation is always welcomed at gigs, and John inviting the ladies on stage to join the band for “Foxy Lady” has become an almost legendary part of their stage show.

The band like to throw in some of Jimi’s lesser-known album tracks as well as the favourites to help keep the die-hard fans happy; but if you’re a Jimi Hendrix fan, there’s something for everyone.

The band are proud to be playing the timeless music of Jimi Hendrix, providing some nostalgic moments for those lucky people who actually witnessed Jimi in the flesh and recreating some of the magic for a new and eager audience.

Catch ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? when they come to town and relive the excitement and explosive stage show of the JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE. Let the band take you through all the favourites like ‘Hey Joe’, ‘Voodoo Chile’, ‘All Along The Watchtower’, ‘Foxy Lady’ and ‘Little Wing’, culminating in the guitar-burning finale of ‘Wild Thing’.

THE NIGHTINGALES

Birmingham’s original punk group The Prefects had been part of The Clash’s ‘White Riot Tour’, recorded a couple of Peel sessions, released a 45 on Rough Trade and, years after splitting up, had a retrospective CD released by NY label Acute Records to all round glowing reviews – from Rolling Stone to webzines.

The Nightingales was formed by a few members of The Prefects following that band’s demise in 1979. Described in John Robb’s definitive book on post punk (“Death To Trad Rock”) as “The misfits’ misfits” and comprising an ever fluctuating line up, based around lyricist/singer Robert Lloyd, the Nightingales enjoyed cult status in the early ’80’s as darlings of the credible music scene and were championed by John Peel, who said of them – “Their performances will serve to confirm their excellence when we are far enough distanced from the 1980’s to look at the period rationally and other, infinitely better known, bands stand revealed as charlatans”.

After working with various part timers, starry eyed wastrels, precious sorts, and mercenaries the group arrived at it’s current (and now longest standing) line up, which features Lloyd, Andreas Schmid from Faust on bass, ex Violet Violet wonder drummer Fliss Kitson and on guitar James Smith, who Lloyd had spotted playing with Damo Suzuki.
