In a mesmerizing tribute to the eclectic and provocative music and poetry of Jim Morrison and the Doors. Considered one of the most authentic and entertaining Australian tribute shows, Unlocking the Doors continue to reprise the energy, mayhem and psychedelia of the late 60s, amassing a growing legion of fans and much critical acclaim.
"We like to show people how brilliant The Doors were... and how intoxicating Jim Morrison was on stage." - Rich aka 'Jim’. A long-time devotee of The Doors, Rich delivers a heartfelt performance, channelling the mystical command once held by the man at the iconic heart of the band.
The Doors were renowned for performing without a bass player, and Sandy on organ and keyboard bass holds the key to reproducing the authentic live sound of Unlocking the Doors. Sandy has dedicated herself to mastering Ray Manzarek’s ability to split his brain between two keyboards, playing hypnotic bass fills with one hand and stabbing syncopation and signature melody lines with the other.
Mick draws on his classical guitar and rock background to play his Gibson SG standard in finger-picking style to emulate Robbie Krieger's beautiful legato tone. From the beautifully atmospheric tremolo of 'Riders on the Storm' to the grinding attack of '5 to 1', Mick plays homage to that unique Krieger sound that is impossible to pigeonhole.
And completing the line-up on drums is Lee. John Densmore's unique fusion of Jazz, Rock and Latin beats still stands unsurpassed for the eclectic signature it placed on The Doors' sound. Lee unlocks Densmore's original style, providing the backbeat so vital when paying tribute to this stunning catalogue of classics.
Over 50 years since the release of their first album, The Doors are still popular, influential, controversial, and relevant. Unlocking The Doors takes us back to when 'The Lizard King' ruled, while helping a new wave of listeners break on through to the other side.
"If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite."
