National Bowie Festival 2017

starring JEFF DUFF

plus special guests The Thin White Ukes

Honouring the anniversary of David Bowie's passing What do we do when a hero dies? A hero who possessed one of the most unique voices in musical history...and was more influential than any other artist on this, or any other planet! A hero who made being different, ‘cool’. A hero who seemingly fell to earth to cast a spell on audiences worldwide, inspiring many to follow.

In January of 2016, the music world lost one of its greatest and most respected artists in David Bowie. Now a year later in 2017, Jeff’s ‘Bowie Unzipped’ show salutes the enormous legacy that Bowie left behind with Jeff's unique interpretation of Bowie's remarkable and enduring songbook. Jeff has been singing Bowie’s songs for many years with the glowing support of Bowie’s official website BowieNET and was a special guest (in conversation) at the opening of the recent Bowie exhibition in Melbourne. Together with a killer band, Duffo’s journey to Planet Bowie includes the songs: Space Oddity, Lets Dance, China Girl, Life On Mars, Changes, Ziggy Stardust... amongst many other faves. Jeff’s all star band features guitarist Jak Housden from the Whitlams along with the brilliant keyboard player Glenn Rhodes and drummer- percussionist Jess Ciampa.

"The best version of Ashes To Ashes you've ever heard"

   Robert Forster

Precision ukulele-harmony trio the Thin White Ukes were the surprise hit of the David Bowie Symposium at ACMI in July, leading to an instant invitation from keynote speaker ROBERT FORSTER to open his Thornbury Theatre date on November 27.

Melbourne string players Betty France, Michael Dwyer and Robert Stephens forged a melodious meeting of voices in the mid 2000s. They became the Thin White Ukes in 2014 to explore a mutual passion for crafty musical arrangements and the timeless genius of the Bowie catalogue.

They have opened for the Models, Jen Cloher and Courtney Barnett and the Cactus Channel and regularly performed at the invitation of ACMI's David Bowie Is… exhibition from the V&A Museum in London.
