Bowie/Prince show in Saratoga on May 20th

Sadly here’s another Bowie tribute show (actually, a show featuring the music of Bowie and Prince) coming close to home that I won’t be attending out of concern about the absence of COVID protection protocols. That said, I thought I’d promote the show anyway, which is taking place at Putnam Place in Saratoga on May 20th at 9:00 PM. The text below is taken directly from the Putnam Place website:

“Prince/Bowie is a tribute fusion band that combines the music of Prince and David Bowie into a high energy live show. It features a rotating Allstar cast of characters from various national acts including Pink Talking Fish, Twiddle, Snarky Puppy, Trey Anastasio Band, Lotus, TAUK and more.

“This act started as a special extra performance at The Catskill Chill Music Festival in NY and it was a huge success. Since then, the band has performed with different lineups at theaters and festivals.

“The mix of the Prince and David Bowie songbooks blend beautifully and an extra spice is added with master composer, Matt Wayne, creating unique horn arrangements that enhance the music in a special way.

“Here is what a setlist of Prince/Bowie can look like:Let’s Dance > 1999, Fame > I Wanna Be You Lover, Under Pressure, Kiss, Space Oddity > D.M.S.R., Moonage Daydream > Purple Rain”

There’s also a video of the band performing “Starman,” which I might post later this week.
