Playing guitar while wearing an eye patch is harder than it looks
What an amazing night! The David Bowie tribute show did not disappoint, if we do say so ourselves. It was a packed house, and all the bands looked and sounded great.
Having a chance to dress the part worked out really well. By coincidence we had discussed doing a "Many Looks of David Bowie" band costume when we played Rock 'n' Roll Hotel last October.
We couldn't get our act together to have band costumes ready in time for that show, unfortunately. But this tribute concert gave us a second chance at greatness!
Many thanks to the fine folks who came out to enjoy a night of David Bowie music as well as to Mason Inn for hosting us.
Best of all, costumes are encouraged
The news of David Bowie's passing earlier this month shocked the entire band and the music community at large. When we got together for rehearsal and talked about it, we realized we each had a different favorite song and our own unique stories of how his music impacted our own musical development.
While we mourn his loss, we were also so thrilled to be asked to participate in an upcoming tribute show where several District bands will play many of the Thin White Duke's classics and some lesser known numbers.
We will be joined by Moral Hangover, Multi-Pass and Goblin Kings, and the show will take place next month at Mason Inn. It's a free event.
We've got our work cut out for us, no doubt. For our part, we're playing "Ashes to Ashes," "Starman," "The Man Who Sold the World" and "Space Oddity."
What an awesome weekend! Thanks for having us, Phase Fest!
This is a fabulous event put on every year by the good people at Phase 1 for the last several years, and Nikki has performed at every single one.
The band was thrilled to share the stage on this night with G.U.T.S., Company Calls, Glitterlust, The CooLots and The Shondes. And what an electric night it was!
