Roosevelt Collier Trio + Guests pay homage to Jimi Hendrix in DC

The Roosevelt Collier Trio performed "Jimi Meets Funk", a tribute to Jimi Hendrix, on December 14 at Pearl Street Warehouse in Washington, DC. Local guitarist Sol Roots opened the bill on a night that featured a bevy of special guests throughout the night, including Carly Harvey (vocals), Mike McHenry (guitar) and DC legend Ron Holloway (tenor saxophone).

Roosevelt "The Dr." Collier, hailing from southern Florida, put his pedal steel mastery on display to the delight of the crowd . The trio ripped through a set of fantastic Hendrix tunes including Power of Soul, Spanish Castle Magic and Them Changes. 

The funk outfit closed out the evening with a serious take on Funkadelic's "Good to Your Earhole", featuring Sol Roots, Mike McHenry and Ron Holloway. Check out full audio of another powerful night of music in the District below!
