Bowie Tribute Band To Play In Beckenham

Save the date Friday, June 9 when bowie tribute band The Thin White Duke will be at the St George’s Arts Festival in Beckenham.  The band formed over 10 years ago by Bromley brothers Scott and Ben Fuller. Bowie was Scott’s idol and it all stemmed from there.

Scott said “I was blown away by David Bowie’s music when I first heard it. The lyrics, the melodies, the experimentation, the risks he took as a musician and performer. He made me want to pick up a guitar and learn these wonderful songs. Of course, I couldn’t help but sing along myself. I’ve always been a bit of mimic, copying voices from films and television. As I developed my singing, I found I was naturally emulating my idol. It made sense to then see if I could perform live as Bowie and sure enough, twelve years later I’m still at it!
