Originally formed in the May 1999 Sundance™,  pay Tribute to the Musical Legacy of Jimi Hendrix.


You will not see any gimmicks at their shows - just well seasoned musicians playing pure, wild, authentic psychedelic sounds, delivering the classics you all know and love and then embelleshing them across new sonic frontiers - making every Sundance performance unique.


Take a pinch of pulsating Groove, wrap it up in a generous dollop of Feel, add a healthy splash Cosmic Guitar and you have Sundance ~ capturing the raw energy of Jimi’s live shows and bringing together one of the most authentic Hendrix guitar sounds you will hear live today from Simon Cassidy, soaring above one of the grooviest rhythm sections you are likely to come across generated by Martyn Bennett on Drums and Terry Sharp on Bass.


There was, and will only ever be, one Jimi Hendrix - so, as you will see, Sundance don't even try and to look like him. In any case there are other "Tribute" acts out there who do a far better job at looking like Jimi Hendrix.


Sundance recreate the sound and energy of Jimi's live performances, aiming to take his music, play it with total authenticity and then push it the limits of imagination and ability. Effortlessly slipping in and out of hypnotic extended improvisations,  Sundance will transport you directly back to the Psychedelic 60’s. You might not see "Jimi" at a Sundance performance, but you will certainly hear his music and feel his spirit.


Sundance are based in the North East of England and play throughout the UK and into Europe, and look forward to sharing their interpretation of this wonderful music with you.


Sundance 50th Anniversary Tribute, Joe's Bar Darlington 2nd Feb 2017

Oct 27, 2016 Written by 

On Thursday 2nd February 1967 The Jimi Hendrix Experience played at the Imperial Hotel Darlington.

Whilst very few people knew who Jimi Hendrix was at the time, Hey Joe was rising in the charts and the world of guitar music was about to be changed - forever!

Thursday 2nd February 2017 Darlington based band Sundance will pay their Tribute to the Master on the 50th Anniversary of the Darlington gig and in the basement of the old Imperial Hotel - now appropriately called Joe's Bar.

Those who have witnessed a live Sundance performance know how close Sundance are to the original live sound of Jimi Hendrix. No wigs, fancy costumes or gimmicks just wild and authentic psychedelic sounds.

This is going to be a very special night and who knows - maybe the mystery missing guitar might even turn up......
