An all-star local line-up of musicians will be celebrating the life and works of David Bowie in a unique live performance on Wednesday 3 February with proceeds from the night going to cancer research. With music direction from Aria awarded Nick Stewart and creative production from APRA Art Music award winner Nadia Sunde, the night will cover Bowie’s career, taking in classics and oddities from his seminal albums including Hunky Dory, Heroes, Ziggy Stardust, Young Americans and more.
“After the news of David Bowie’s passing I kept watching footage of people singing his songs in the streets of Brixton and wishing for a night in my home town where I could do the same…raise my voice in celebration of a creative visionary who has given us so much,” Nadia Sunde, Creative Producer said.
“So that’s what we’ll be doing… with a kick-arse ten piece band, including brass section, and multiple vocalists.”
“We’ll be raising some mighty sounds in honour of a man who generously taught us to ‘turn and face the strange’, “ Nadia said.
The show features a monster ten-piece band with members from Taylor, Cheap Fakes, French Butler Called Smith and The Rooftops with performances by Nadia Sunde, Hayden Andrews, David Taylor, Scott French and Brennan Smith.
