Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., the family owned company devoted to preserving the legacy of the late guitar-great Jimi Hendrix, announced the line-up for its all-star musical tribute to be held on Saturday, September 7 as part of San Diego's popular Street Scene festival.
Celebrating its 19th Anniversary, Street Scene is widely recognized as "the best musical event in California." The three-day event, held September 6-8 features over 100 bands on 12 stages, including the sounds of rock, R&B, rap, electronica, funk, reggae, ska, hip-hop, blues, jazz, salsa, mambo, and Zydeco. With an expected audience in excess of 100,000 and the addition of the Jimi Hendrix All-Star Tribute, this year's event is sure to be a memorable affair.
