A seasoned pro with a magic touch, Alix has played and toured with some amazing names in the rock and funk world, and brought his own blend and style to the proceedings with amazing renditions from Hendrix through to funk.Alix and his band pitched the set list perfectly as the dance floor filled up with many dozens of people abandoning themselves to the groove. It's a delight to experience this sort of stage presence and talent, and I wasn't alone in thinking this'His vocal range continues to wow audiences with the authentic sounds of the original artist in his own unique style.
