Gimme Hendrix is an Athens, GA based tribute band to the greatest group of all time, the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The Jimi Hendrix Experience is the best band to come out of the psychedelic 60’s, whose movement not only changed the decade, but redefined the way music would be played forever. The sound was an amazing blend of blues, soul, r&b, jazz, rock and many other genres of music. No one had heard anything like it before Jimi Hendrix’s priceless contribution.
Gimme Hendrix aspires to recreate the Jimi Hendrix Experience. We strive to look and dress the part, and to capture the vibe and mannerisms, but the most important goal is to relive the sound. The experience was a three piece, and Gimme Hendrix is a three piece. We create amazing live performances just like the experience did. We play to our best ability and make sure when people come to the show they leave believing that the spirit of the Jimi Hendrix Experience is still very much alive. This band truly is a tribute to the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Elliot Holden is one of the hottest new talents to emerge on the scene in recent years. His new mixtape “After The Club” Volume One has received critical raves and substantial views on YouTube and DatPiff. Set to a backdrop of current Hip Hop and R&B, Elliot has created a unique formula in the pantheon of guitar shred pioneers. He has built a strong regional following and earned opening slots with such acts as THE DEREK TRUCKS BAND and DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND. He was featured in GUITAR PLAYER Magazine’s Spotlight and his fiery playing has been compared to that of Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck and Jimi Hendrix. However the scope of Holden’s influences reaches far beyond the scope of guitar virtuosos.
