Originally formed by Simon Cassidy in 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.


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.

Jimi's Guitar

Come on Darlington let's have a happy ending to the sad and shameful story of Jimi's guitar being stolen after his gig at the Imperial Hotel, Darlington on 2nd February 1967

A great genius left this World on 18th September 1970 leaving behind him a musical legacy that changed the course of popular music and which influenced all guitarists that have followed him.

Delighted to welcome Terry Sharp on Bass who will be making his first appearance at our 45th Anniversary Tribute to Jimi at Avalon, Darlington on 19th September.

Great gig at the Darlington Arts Centre last Friday. Thanks to everyone who came along to enjoy our Tribute to Jimi.

Sundance have been known to occasionally go out as "Cassidy Play Hendrix" at guitar shows to promote Simon Cassidy's Guitar Company.

The Guitar Show 2015 was the first outing Sundance as "Cassidy Play Hendrix" promoting the Guitar Brand of Simon Cassidy.
