101.5 KGB Presents Jim Morrison Celebration Featuring Wild Child

If you love a trip down memory lane and the sounds of yesteryear, this is one you won’t want to miss. A Wild Child performance is the closest thing to a real 60’s Doors concert and Live Doors Experience. This is not a typical tribute band; Wild Child relies on recapturing the original sound, feel, mood, dynamics and delivery of the Doors’ music. In true Doors fashion there are no wigs, props, costumes, or phony banter between songs.
