This event is all ages
Wild Child has 20 solid years of performance in the competitive L.A. Music Scene. Faithfully re-creating a live Doors Concert on stage. This is not a typical Doors tribute band! The music is painstakingly reproduced and combined with the voice, look and essence of Jim Morrison live on stage (performed by lead singer Dave Brock). Wild Child mirrors the depth, energy and emotion of The Doors concerts as they were live back in the late 1960's. The Band also utilizes the same musical instruments live as The Doors did over 35 years ago. Wild Child performs internationally, playing to packed venues around the globe.
Front man, Dave Brock, started his role as the Lizard King by grabbing the lead in the" Jim Morrison Rock Opera," produced by the late legends sister, Anna Morrison Graham. Anna personally selected Brock for the part. From there, he started the band "Wild Child," whose reputation rapidly spread from Southern California to remote areas of the world. The Doors keyboardist, Ray Manzarek, introduced Wild Child to a packed Los Angeles crowd at the bands first show at The Whisky a-Go-Go on July 3rd, 1986. Wild Child broke into the national act venue circuit before any other tribute act, selling out countless shows from its beginning to the present. In the late 80s, Brock was under consideration to play the lead actor in the Oliver Stone movie "The Doors." Many experts have complimented his stage rendition of Jim Morrison, some of which are listed on the Press page of this site. Concert goers leave Wild Child concerts in amazement and disbelief, many of which are quoted here at Fan Reviews. The band relies on stage craft and musicianship to create an event that people will remember, without corn ball antics and banter that many tribute bands incorporate.
Two years ago the band produced "Wild Child - Live In Concert" a 22 song double disc CD set of songs that The Doors made popular on stage as well as songs from their last album that they were never able to perform live with Jim Morrison, due to his unexpected death. Recorded 100% live, this CD set can be purchased and MP3 clips can be heard on the Wild Child live double CD page of this site. Below is what one expert said about the CD set :
"[Wild Child's live CD] has been in production for over a year as lead singer David Brock has sought perfection on each and every song. I honestly think that this recording could get passed off to even a seasoned collector as being a new unheard Doors live show from the 1960's. It's the most incredible re-creation that I have ever heard"
