Wham Bam Bowie Band · 8:30pm
David Bowie and his legendary music need no introduction..... Wham Bam Bowie Band presents LIVE, the music of David Bowie.
Since 2013 the band has been on a mission to faithfully present Bowie’s classics onstage, music that still influences generations of fans. Their mission has taken on a more solemn tone since the sad loss of Bowie at age 69 in January 2016.
Bandleader Mark Casson became a Bowie fan with countless other young Brits when Bowie and Spiders From Mars appeared on Top Of The Pops. The legendary performance inspired him. “We all knew this was something very, very different” he says, recalling the live TV broadcast in his native England.
Thirty years later, Mark did a one-off Bowie tribute show in Nashville club; it was not only great fun but a massive success, with fans immediately requesting a repeat performance.
After moving to Asheville, Mark assembled a band to continue the idea. Singer Aaron Price is on keys/bass. Andre Cholmondeley of Project/Object, the Zappa tribute, on guitar. On Drums is Jim Neu, drummer in Who tribute "Wholigans"
The Wham Bam live show features the expected blockbuster 80s hits, as well as classics and fan faves from Space Oddity on thru the Hunky Dory, Alladin Sane, and Heroes periods.
The highlight of the evening for many fans is a COMPLETE PERFORMANCE of Bowie’s breakthrough The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars.
Wham Bam Bowie Band brings Bowie’s iconic music to life. David Bowie was of course still a very active and creative force, right up to the end. His critically acclaimed #1 album The Next Day surprised fans new and old in 2013, released on his birthday. In 2016 his 69th birthday saw the release of Blackstar, continuing his prolific run. As everyone knows, two days later, sadly David Bowie was to leave our planet, leaving over 50 years of brilliant music for generations to discover and enjoy.
Wham Bam Bowie Band is committed to keeping Bowie’s music live onstage, where it belongs !!
