Quotes & Highlights
- "The Soft Parade is excellent. Yeah, Joe Russo - terrific. I think they do an excellent job of re-creating 'the Doors experience'. It's great, man...the Soft Parade is real cool." --Ray Manzarek
The Soft Parade is revered worldwide as the premier Doors tribute show. They recreate, with stunning accuracy, the primal, poetic atmosphere of a vintage Doors concert. The Soft Parade has toured 20 countries, been joined onstage by original Doors guitarist Robby Krieger and has performed hundreds of concerts worldwide. Their impeccable reputation and loyal international following has enabled them to play shows around the globe since 1990.
The Soft Parade was formed in 1990 by lead vocalist Joe Russo. His goal was to re-create - for today's audiences - the theatrical, poetic, primal atmosphere of a live Doors concert.
He has succeeded. The Soft Parade stands as the most fascinating, convincing example of a tribute performance there could ever be.
Seeing The Soft Parade is like reliving the legendary concerts Jim Morrison and The Doors performed over 30 years ago. The Soft Parade is internationally recognized as one of the most authentic, realistic tribute bands working today. From the vintage musical instruments and sound equipment right down to stage clothing and hairstyles - watching The Soft Parade is as close to seeing the Doors as anyone can possibly get.
The show is so hauntingly authentic that critics and fans continually use words like "eerie" and "chilling" to define the experience. The New York Times summed their impressions by saying, "The Soft Parade's show is so eerily convincing, often causing the audience to temporarily suspend it's disbelief".
But the excitement of The Soft Parade must be seen.
