Introducing Piece of my Heart Janis Joplin tribute

Let us share our musical passion!

About Us

Our Story

"Piece of my Heart" a tribute to Janis Joplin hails from the San Francisco Bay Area. This band of hippies felt the need to keep this brand of psychedelic blues alive, and so the band was formed.

The band consists of Brad Torres on drums, Mike Holland on bass, and Fred Mabunga on guitar.

Julie Medeiros was selected for vocals to fill the role of Janis Joplin, which is not an easy task to do. Julie has that gravely soulful kind of voice that Janis had. If you close your eyes the resemblance in her voice is eerie close.




What Inspires Us

We are really inspired by whole vibe that was going on in the 60"s "Summer of Love"

We try to stay authentic and true to form. From the clothes and vintage gear, to the reverb drenched guitar, the hypnotizing and somtimes funky drum beats, down to the groovy R&B basslines you heard on those old Stax recordings.  Check out one of their shows and be transported back to the 60's.

Our Influences

Psychedelic rock, Mowtowm, R&B, Tina Turner, Etta James , Aretha Franklin, Grace Slick.
