The Soft Parade – America’s Top Tribute to the Doors
The Soft Parade, America’s top tribute to the Doors pioneered the concept of the tribute band decades ago, and have achieved international success as the very first authentic Doors tribute show. The Soft Parade’s impeccable reputation for stunning audiences by recreating the look, atmosphere and sounds of a real, live Doors concert quickly brought them world class status as an international touring band that has performed in over 20 countries. They utilize vintage gear, instruments, clothing and look-alike members to recreate “The Doors” live. The Soft Parade has been joined on stage by Doors guitarist Robby Krieger and was endorsed by keyboardist Ray Manzarek when he signed a contract to perform a series of concerts as a member of The Soft Parade. At the front of the show is founding member Joe Russo who hands down is the closest thing one can come to the real Jim Morrison. His published photo has been mistaken for that of Morrison hundreds of times and he has shocked audiences all over the world with his innate ability to channel the power, intensity and charisma of Jim Morrison and harness it on stage in front of a live audiences. It is beyond remarkable. Unlike most tributes, they do not impersonate and mimic the band, they musically and spiritually inhabit it. This is the major difference between The Soft Parade and most other tributes, They are “real”.
