The Strange Doors are the UK’s most authentic tribute to the legendary American band The Doors.
They’ve been thrilling audiences since 2010 with their note for note recreations of The Doors’ unique rock music and seeing them perform is as close as you can get to a concert by the real Doors. They have played all over the UK, including a headline slot at Festwich (the UK’s biggest free music festival), toured France as part of Doors’ late lead singer Jim Morrison’s seventieth birthday celebration, and even had the honour of performing with musician Jerry Scheff who played bass on the Doors’ classic album L.A. Woman.
At a Strange Doors performance audiences will experience ad-libbed poetry, a singer that jumps into the air and writhes on the floor (whilst conjuring the Lizard King with his rich baritone voice), those crisp organ sounds of Ray Manzarek cutting through the air with beautiful precision, bluesy slide guitar and powerful, yet subtle drumming that punctuates the music and vocals.
The music of The Doors continues to have the beguiling power to reach into souls in a way no other music can, whether it be the moving intrigue of Riders On The Storm, the expansive energy of L.A. Woman or the sheer exuberance of the out-and-out rock classic, Light My Fire.
The Strange Doors invite audiences to immerse themselves in the vibe, to move to the hypnotic beat and to break on through to the other side. Their two hour show also includes psychedelic projection that visually enhances the atmosphere. Is everybody in? The Ceremony is about to begin...
