“This is a tribute show, but nobody pretends to be the band (like Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin.) It’s about the music, the feel and the vibe, and they put on a great show with wonderful energy. You can feel the energy when they are at the Fitton Center. They love coming here. They love coming to Hamilton, and they really enjoy the audience here. It’s one of the highlights of their musical year,” he said.
MacKenzie-Thurley said there’s a segment of The Newbees show called “Should-of-Stock,” instead of Woodstock, which features music from some of the bands that didn’t make the Woodstock lineup, who they feel should have been there.
The Newbees, a Cincinnati-based rock band founded by husband and wife duo, Jeff and Misty Perholtz, have been performing across the region and beyond for more than a decade. Comprised of original compositions crafted in harmony and improvisation, the band performs an array of songs that are rooted in vintage pop and rock.
