Purple Haze Band

Purple Haze Jimi Hendrix Tribute: Ralph Woodson certainly knows his Hendrix. He has studied his idol to the point of being able to play the guitar behind his back, and with his teeth. Ralph’s a Hendrix authority, and it’s obvious when you see him perform. Ralph formed the Ralph Woodson Experience in 2001 (which became Purple Haze in 2010), focusing on the Hendrix material that he grew up with and always loved. Purple Haze has gained a steady following in the Bay Area and knock people out wherever they go. Ralph’s showmanship and command of the Hendrix material is second to none. Pete Roberts on bass has been inspired by bassists Chris Squire, John Entwistle, John Paul Jones, and Geddy Lee. He’s been playing professionally with the likes of Dan Matrazzo, Jeff Sipe (aka Apt-Q258), and Yonrico Scott (formerly of the Derek Trucks Band). Leo Vigil is one of California’s premiere drummers. He can pound lightning-fast double bass rhythms or accent with subtle tones and sounds on the drum set. His versatility keeps him busy – whether it is Rock, Jazz, Metal, Latin, Funk, Reggae, Blues, Country, or Soul – he is proficient at all styles. His many skills have allowed him to share the stage with such well-known performers as: Eddie Money, Ronnie Montrose, Rick Derringer, Elvin Bishop, Foghat, Y&T, Night Ranger, Three Dog Night, B.J. Thomas, Boz Skagg
