Fame! Who doesn’t want to be a rock star for a night? Here’s your chance to be an icon like Bowie, Elton, Debbie Harry, Freddie Mercury, Sly Stone, David Cassidy, or your favorite member of the Banana Splits. BowieVision, Elton Jah (EJ songs gone reggae/ska,) and Blackie (Blondie tribute) will provide the rock, you provide the star power. Catch the eye of celebrity judge and MC Cathy Sorbo (comedienne, singer, and voice of the Jet City Rollergirls) and you could win valuable prizes in our 70s rock star costume contest. Advance tickets are only $13 and are highly recommended as this show is likely to sell out.

While others imitate, BowieVision elevates. Foregoing the pretense of wigs and makeup and focusing instead on interpreting David Bowie’s eclectic and expansive musical catalog, BowieVision raises the bar for what a tribute band can be.

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

Elton Jah
“Hailing from Seattle, WA, Elton Jah! The Ultimate Reggae Tribute to Sir Elton John, hits the stage with a concept that is great fun and easy to love: all of your favorite Elton John hits ( Rocket Man, Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer, etc.) set to a funky backbeat of reggae, ska, dancehall and dub. Completing the experience is the visual aspect; each member dresses in Elton John-esque costumes, along with a huge motion graphics display for each song and a fantastic light show. The one word that best describes the Elton Jah! live show is simply: FUN.

Blackie (Blondie tribute)
In case you ever wondered what the love child of Debbie Harry and Otis Redding would sound like, here’s your chance to find out.. BLACKIE! This is no ordinary tribute band, these Rock N Roll heroes take a sound you know and love and deliver in a way you’ve never heard before. Featuring a band of Seattle veterans, and spearheaded by sultry songstress, Dejha Colantuono, BLACKIE interprets the searing new wave pop anthems of Blondie with surging soul….bring your dancin’ shoes!

    I’m new to Seattle and I’m a HUGE Bowie fan! I had planned to see you guys ASAP when I arrived in Seattle via the Canadian Rockies, but I the stars were not aligned that night and I was very sad. I might possibly be the most enthusiastic person going to the October 25th show. It would be a real treat to be awarded the free tickets, I assure you they would not be wasted on me :)
    Cheers! And see you soon!

    I am a huge Bowie/glam fan and would love to take a friend who is similarly inclined. We would assure that all music is TO BE PLAYED AT MAXIMUM VOLUME :)

  5. Jennifer Sangster October 7, 2014 at 2:51 pm #

    Blackie! I have still never seen them and I have heard so many good things. I don’t have any Halloween plans yet, and this would be an amazing excuse to dress up as Kate Pierson from the B-52’s!!

    I want a ticket because I haven’t found any Halloween thing to do yet.

    I’ve been an avid Bowie/Elton John fan since the early 70’s! Do much so, that I just got back from Chicago to see the David Bowie Is exhibit and would like an opportunity to show off my costume made in response to seeing his clothes up close. Of course, it’s a bit of Elton John & David Bowie combined, what with my five inch platform blue shoes! It is also my birthday weekend, and I would so enjoy inviting a friend to go to this exciting event! Thank you for considering me!

  13. Carla S October 14, 2014 at 7:41 pm #

    Bowie is hot! I can’t wait to see all these great costumes!

  14. Charlene October 15, 2014 at 2:24 pm #

    I still have my platforms and disco pants from 1976. I’d probably break a hip in the shoes, now and I think spandex has a life expectancy of 6 years, if you sweat- 3 hours. Not a pretty sight to see pink pants crumbling on the dance floor.

    Have a fabu concert!!

  15. Clay October 16, 2014 at 4:32 pm #

    Going to see my friend Stephen Mitchell in Bowie Vision! I’ll be rockin the non-Glam Elvis! Thankyavermuch!

  16. Sarah Rose October 19, 2014 at 6:45 pm #

    This dancing cat doesn’t need an excuse to boogie to the beat, but send some tickets this way and I can guarantee a happening Halloween!

  17. Heather October 20, 2014 at 11:10 am #

    Never seen any of these cover bands, sounds like a fun night.
