Back in the 80′s Syl Thompson started a David Bowie Tribute Band called ‘Major Tom’. As far as I know this band was the original Tribute band for Bowie and I believe, to date, no one has come up to the challenge of duplicating Syl’s talent for his replicating David Bowies unique style and sound. Syl not only has the looks, moves, and charisma of the man himself, but he also has his vocals and phrasing down to a T. After the 3rd or 4th song you truly have to try to remember who it is you are watching. David Bowie himself???? hmmmmmm
After 3 decades Syl is bring the David Bowie tribute back to life and we will be presenting ‘A Night of Bowie’ along with two of his original musicians. Rob Begg on Bass and myself on guitar.
We are supported by Shawn Lang, a 26 year old drummer that is a total machine on the kit with Mr Graham Howel on Saxaphone and Rob and Marc Gawthrop on keyboards.
Syl Thompson presents “A Night of Bowie“ on September 13, 2013 at the Mary Winspear Center. Tickets will be available on line at www.marywinspear.ca // by calling 250-656-0275 or in person at 2243 Beacon Ave. Sidney, B.C.
The Charlie White Theater is a small but cozy theater with state of the art lighting and sound systems. It only holds 315 seats so don’t be disappointed. Book
We haven’t been back to the Island since the late 80′s and who knows when we will be back after this September 2013 show. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to watch the very talented Syl Thompson as he sings the many iconic songs of David Bowie.
Please pass this email along to anyone you know that loves a good Bowie song.
Maybe I’ll see you there,
