Jimi Bell's Birthday Bash!

Crystal Bees in Southington CT was the place to be on Saturday Night… Jimi Bell of House of Lords and Autograph celebrated his 65th birthday with his fans and fellow musicians.  It was standing room only with people actually standing outside, as the venue was at full capacity.  The people in attendance were treated to an incredible show by Jimi and his bandmates in Beyond Purple, Mike Gill, BJ Zampa (Dokken), Brian Camilleri and Mark Zito.  Beyond Purple never disappoints and had the crowd on their feet the entire time!  Toward the end of the Beyond Purple set, Jimi was joined on stage by special guest Chris McCarvill of Dokken. Chris performed 3 songs with Jimi, his Dokken Bandmate BJ Zampa and Mark Zito.  It was a mini Maxx Explosion reunion.  Jimi was also joined on stage and serenaded by the beautiful Tracy James.  Jimi’s bride Mandy made sure that everyone had cake too!  


The overwhelming turnout was a true testament to how much Jimi is loved by his fellow musicians and fans.  He has given us all a lifetime of music and he shows no signs of slowing down. Happy 65th birthday Jimi, from all of us at Tru Rock Revival Magazine!
