Hi folks... and Happy Good Friday to you all!
Well, it's been a great week, we had an amazing gig at The Castle Theatre in Wellingborough. Definitely in my top 5 of 'best gigs ever', The Bowie Starman shows just get better and better. Great bunch of musicians headed up with the talented Michael King... spoiler alert.... their knowledge of Skin Bracer is second to none.
The show is chock-full of David Bowie's fantastical hits spanning his many incarnations, a great tribute to a great artist. I can't tell you how much fun I am having putting my own slant on solos by Mick Ronson and SRV and, I get the chance to explore Bowie's eclectic music styles. As I say to my students, open your mind to artist that aren't on your playlist, even... ahem...a 'mature' student like myself is learning something new from Bowie's sound and vision in musical terms. (See what I did there, yeah, you get me).
So, where next? Pack the car, set the playlist and off to the East Coast, UK style, to the beautiful Princess Theatre in Hunstanton. Give us a 'shout out' me and the boys can't wait to see ya'll!
