“The celebratory evening opens with a mini showcase of area based artists whose works have been influenced by Hendrix including compositional works by Marina Vishnyakova and her quartet featuring Marina Vishnyakova (violin), Frank Velardo (guitar), Josh Machiz (bass), and Alex Maio (drums), the Missy Danielle Duo featuring vocalist Missy Danielle (Tye Tribbett, Goapele, Kim Burrell and Evelyn "Champagne" King) and guitarist Kyle Lee and finally Lamont Dixon Trio featuring the spoken words of Lamont Dixon and Sarai backed by guitarist Richard Tucker. Fiuczynski will lead his five-piece ensemble — including Kenwood Dennard (drums), Freedom Bremner (vocals), Utar Dundarartun (microtonal keyboards) and Justin Schornstein (bass) — through the most challenging landscapes of blues, jazz, rock, soul, funk and punk.”
