Their exhilarating show is better described as a celebration than a tribute. Lead singer Stefan Mitchell shares Bowie’s gift for connecting with a crowd and creating an atmosphere that’s simultaneously epic and intimate, an approach that resonates with audiences on a deeper level than mere impersonation ever could.
Members of Northwest lounge-pop mainstays the Dudley Manlove Quartet and new wave hip-hop unit Purr Gato joined forces in 2013 to share their love of Bowie’s music with audiences in Seattle and beyond. Combining musical dexterity, masterful stage presence, and stunning video projections, BowieVision puts its unique stamp on rock anthems like Rebel Rebel and Suffragette City; the wide-screen balladry of Life on Mars?, Space Oddity, and Changes; mid-70s “plastic soul” (Golden Years, Young Americans, Fame;) art-pop experiments like Fashion, Heroes, and Ashes to Ashes; and the high-sheen Eighties classics Let’s Dance, China Girl, and Blue Jean.
Although Bowie’s personas have been ever-changing, his music is timeless. It’s this realization that elevates BowieVision above the realm of trite nostalgia. It may be a bold statement to make about a “tribute” band, but it’s a fact: BowieVision is the real deal. Accept no imitations
