ABOUT

JUST LIKE JANIS

With stunning historical accuracy in both look and sound, the DEFINITIVE tribute to the Lengendary Pearl, JANIS JOPLIN, has been assembled ...JUST LIKE JANIS out of PHILADELPHIA.  JLJ is the hottest new act from RE-CREATION CONCERTS whose reputation for producing the best tributes to the greatest artists of all-time is growing fast for finding artists that literally re-create these famous performers down to the guitar strap! 

JUST LIKE JANIS is no different!  Featuring not one but two rising star sensations in the stunning vocals of  CAT MANNING as JANIS JOPLIN and the blistering guitar talents of BILLY THE KID THODEN playing the parts of Joplin guitarists, SAM ANDREW and JOHN TILL.  

Cat and Billy's other national touring projects have taken them across the USA from Philly to Hawaii and back. And played as openers for luminaries like the Robert Randolph band and Pat Travers.  Cat has performed with multiple cover and original bands at top venues like the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, Lincoln Financial Field, the Bitter End in NYC and more. Billy was discovered by Jimi Hendrix bassist, Billy Cox at age 10, has performed with and been tutored by guitar legends like, Eric Gales, Dicky Betts & Billy Gibbons and has played a National blues festival tour schedule ever since. Billy and Cat joined forces for their original band, Zenyth who's debut CD comes out in 2020 and of course.. JUST LIKE JANIS.
