David Bowie was one of music history’s most praised and successful artists, with a career that spanned four decades. Bowie continuously sought to reinvent himself, while selling an estimated 140 million albums. His genre-defying journey through a vast array of musical styles, from rock to funk, dance to ballad, always kept fans guessing what he would do next.
A Night Of Bowie is a celebration of Bowie’s extensive list of memorable hits, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on his peak years from the early ’70s to the early ’90s. The show is eerily close to hearing and seeing Bowie himself.
Since the early ‘80s, Victoria-based musician, Syl Thompson (pictured) and his band, Ground Control, have been paying tribute to David Bowie’s music with respect and pride. Thompson embodies Bowie’s musical style and persona; in fact, he has been acclaimed as providing the most credible and realistic Bowie experience in North America.
Six highly respected musicians play each song as Bowie and his band performed them live. The look and feel of the concert is based on the Heathen/Reality tours. Music spans the broad spectrum of Bowie’s hits from 1969’s Space Oddity to 2013’s Where Are We Now?
Musicians include Rob Begg, the original bass player, who has played with acts that included members of Berlin, The Knack and Tom Petty; John Gilliat, the original guitar player, who competed at the Montreal Jazz Festival and represented Canada at Japan’s 2005 Expo and Canada’s 2010 Winter Olympics. Kyle Radomsky on drums – from Farmer’s Daughters to playing with members of Loverboy, Pablo Cruise and Nearly Neal, Kyle can do it all – and Graham Howell, who played with the 1980s band Skaboom and later with Powder Blues Band, is on saxophone and flute. Rounding out Ground Control are lifelong friends of Thompson, brothers Marc Gawthrop of Teen Angel and Rob Gawthrop of Steelback.
A Night of Bowie promises to be an exciting event.
