David Bowie Tribute – The Band
With the band having had the present line-up for nearly 10 years, this David Bowie Tribute Band is an honest and insightful musical tribute to David Bowie.
Pianist Spencer studied at Trinity College of Music. Currently he is playing at The Cambridge Theatre where he is Assistant Musical Director on the West End hit musical show Matilda. Spencer formed the band when he introduced a few of his favourite musicians to singer Charlie. Who had been planning this show for a while. From Mike Garson’s avant-garde piano to Brian Eno’s synth sounds Spencer is at the top of his game.
JM studied alongside Spencer at Trinity College. He started playing at 7 years old and spent years practising to capture the tones of great players like Eddie Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughan (Let’s Dance) and of course Mick Ronson. When he’s not strutting aroung in satin and heels JM teaches guitar to advanced level and plays many other instruments. His favourite David Bowie albums are Let’s Dance and Scary Monsters.
JP studied Jazz Piano at Trinity College and now runs his own recording studio in Surrey. He has written and performed on many albums. One of which received regular airplay in America. JP and his two brothers in David Live have been singing together since they were kids. They were perfecting the tight harmonies of artists like The Eagles and The Beach Boys. JP’s top tracks are Modern Love, Let’s Dance and Fame.
Raphaël studied Music and Sound Recording at Surrey University and has designed many of the amps and speakers that we use to shape our live sound.
His company Sutcliffe Amplification built the guitar and bass rigs for David Live to really nail the Spiders’ tone with hand-wired bespoke circuits, valves and plenty of tweaking! Raphaël’s favourite Bowie album is Ziggy Stardust The Motion Picture Soundtrack.
