Originating from Broms- grove inWorcestershire, Led Hendrix are the UK’s only band to pay tribute to the music of two of rock music’s greatest artists, the mighty Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. Always respectful to the “classics”, Led Hendrix captures the sounds and style of the original artist with a modern twist, using period instruments to further en- hance the sound and visual experience. The band, who have been working musicians for many years, formed in 2015, and have built up a strong following around theWest Midlands. 2019 will see the band touring venues around the UK. In September 2018, Led Hendrix per- formed in front of an international audience at the John Bonham A Celebration event in Redditch town centre, and went down a storm. The initiative is being backed by a group of local music fans, lead by JeffWatson. “The town centre is lacking a live music venue, and Into TheValley aims to plug that gap” says Jeff.“We want to become the place in Redditch to see local, regional and touring bands of all music genres.” Free admission to over 18s only.
