Relight My Fire: The Doors' Robby Krieger debuting new band at intimate LA-area show this Thursday
Doors guitarist Robby Krieger has formed a new band called The New Experience that will play its debut show this Thursday, June 27, at the Viva Rancho Cantina in the Los Angeles suburb of Burbank, California.
The group also features keyboardist Ed Roth, who's collaborated with Ronnie Montrose and Annie Lennox; bassist Kevin Brandon, who played with Aretha Franklin for more than 20 years and also worked with dozens of other well-known musicians; and drummer Dale Alexander, whose resume includes working with Prince and George Benson. The band is being billed as "a new experience in jazz, rhythm and blues."
Tickets for the intimate concert are available at BrownPaperTickets.com and cost just $12, not including fees.
Krieger only has a few other confirmed shows on his 2019 schedule. They include a pair of joint East Coast concerts this fall with Mountain frontman Leslie West September 14 in Englewood, New Jersey, and September 20 in Westbury, New York. Robby also will play a gig September 28 at The Doors' old stomping grounds, the famous Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, California.
In other news, Krieger released a new instrumental song titled "Slide Home" back in December from a long-in-the-works solo album that's reportedly is due out this year, although Robby hasn't announced any more details about the project yet.
