STAR TRIPPERS: S Sorrensen hosts a cast of scarily authentic ’60s rockers in the Songs of the Haight Ashbury stage show.

Having been invited to play the 2013 East Coast Blues and Roots Festival, The Songs of the Haight Ashbury stage show is on a roll.

This theatrical event is playing on Saturday night, December 8, at Stokers Siding Memorial Hall.

The musical journey through San Francisco's 1967 cultural revolution all began at the hall, according to host S Sorrensen.

It features US expat James T (touring veteran with John Lee Hooker and The Band) as himself, Lil'Fi channelling Janis Joplin, Connor Cleary playing Hendrix and Bill Jacobi evoking Arlo Guthrie and Dylan.

Andrea Soler takes Joni Mitchell's songs to a new dimension and Diana Anaid sings Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane with psychedelic cred.

All the performers are backed by the veteran All-Star-Full-Tilt-Band. Tickets are $25 from Organic Revolution, Murwillumbah, or on 6679 5074.
