The band helped spearhead an industry by pioneering 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 performing to massive crowds in theaters, stadiums and festivals in over 20 countries including Germany, Chile, Israel, Italy, France, Spain, Canada, Puerto Rico, Netherlands, Panama, Costa Rica, Luxembourg, Belgium, Holland and many others.
It was the first-ever band to utilize vintage gear, instruments, clothing and look alike members to recreate “The Doors” live. They set the standard and raised the bar for excellence that they have maintained to this day.
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 an come to the real Jim Morrison. His published photo has been mistaken for that of Morrison several times and he has shocked audiences all over the world with this innate ability to channel the power, intensity and charisma of Jim Morrison and harness it on stage in front of live audiences.
They do not impersonate the band, but instead musically and spiritually inhabit it. This is was makes the Soft Parade THE premier Doors tribute show and best tribute rock bands to hire!
