Get ready for this treat. Wild T knows the songs of Jimi Hendrix inside and out having played these songs for well over 25 years professionally. What else can you really say about this but......amazing! This is one phenomenal artist that should NOT be missed. About Wild T As an original artist Wild T and the Spirit have released 7 albums and their renditions of some Hendrix classics have left their fans aw-struck! Over the years the band has performed thousands of club and festival shows throughout Europe & North America and have shared the stage with such great acts as Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, Grand Funk Railroad, and with world renown guitarists Joe Bonmassa, Walter Trout, Rick Derringer, Kim Mitchell, Eric Sardinas, Uli Jon Roth, and Pat Travers…to name just a few! Guitarist/lead vocalist Wild T(Tony Springer) is joined on stage by bassist/vocalist Guenther Kapelle and drummer Dave Langguth (Nelly Furtado, Gilby Clark, Kim Mitchell). Amazing Quotes about Wild T "An absolute delight to work with- A lyrical, lilting take on Hendrix." David Bowie "I followed him around like he was a Messiah....Tony's been my Messiah for years." Jeff Healey "If this were 1966, we would be witnessing the discovery of the Wild T Experience." Riffs,UK "Don't try and compare Wild T & the Spirit with anyone else out there, especially in Canada, as he is truly in a special league of his own, as he gets down and dirty as he gets down and dirty with his guitar and leaves all other pretenders in the dust." John Vermilyea, Blues Underground Network 2008 "He does the most convincing Hendrix tribute, anywhere, anytime. He's also just a phenomenal guitarist in his own right - and a great showman. I've seen him live several times, and I've always come away in awe, with the spirit refreshed. Definitely worth seeing, when he comes to town." Ian King The Celebration Army: The Celebration Army's music strongly harkens to the golden ages of classic rock and R n B (and even to a raw, dirty sort of funk that people tend to keep a naughty secret). Listen to songs like "Black Blue Jeans" and you'll experience a stylistic breadth that takes listeners all the way from frenetic rock to ingenious hooks to driving funk and back again. The Celebration Army grooves in a way that justifies excessive sweating, oddly moist lips, and ugly grimaces of musical hypnosis. Better yet, they give reviewers a chance to write things that would normally be too vague for publication: Troy Larabie lays it down with insanely tight drum work that is also delicious and crispy; Leandro Motta's bass playing is a massive, slippery eel of funk that somehow sounds right at home in a band that is not really a funk band. But it's always better to be specific: Oliver Pigott's powerful and technically stunning voice comes as a great sonic relief in a rock epoch typified by indie singers whose style is best described as vocal ennui; Nelson Sobral's guitar work is a masterclass not only in playing with artful restraint but also in tone craft, he is never pretentious but pulls out every sweet, warm overdrive tone that has ever existed.
