‘Transatlantic Bowie’ with the Transatlantic Ensemble returns live to Wylam Brewery
January 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Wylam favourites The Transatlantic Ensemble are a group of top London session musicians & vocalists.
As anyone who has seen their record breaking ‘Rumours’ show @ Wylam, will tell you, their musicianship is completely out of this world..!
Of all the many shows they do, ‘TRANSATLANTIC BOWIE’ is their absolute favourite.
Originally conceived to mark David’s passing back in 2016, this will now be the 3rd year we have brought this show back to Wylam on that same January weekend.
All of David’s biggest hits will be played & the band are bringing their full brass section & added percussion, to really do his back-catalogue proper justice.
There have been a few ch, ch, ch, ch, changes to the show, as the band have now dropped the couple of tunes they were doing from the ‘Blackstar’ album & replaced them with hits from some David’s more upbeat albums.
This is a true homage, delivered with real integrity to David’s original recordings, so they don’t waltz around the stage pretending to be David (in poorly replicated costumes, or pastiche his iconic looks) There will be no pound-stretcher slap & nylon Ziggy wigs…
‘TRANSATLANTIC BOWIE’ is the opposite of all that. This is all about David’s music & instead the focus is solely on lovingly re-creating his best recordings, live.
If you’re a Bowie fan, this stunning performance, by this incredible ensemble, is quite simply something you cannot afford to miss… x
