Leigh Rock – Bowie & T. Rex Tribute Night Sat 25 Feb 2023

ANOTHER DOUBLE-HEADER: IT’S GLAM ROCK NIGHT AT LEIGH ROCK!

We are delighted to welcome ‘Aladdinsane‘ with their David Bowie tribute PLUS ‘Bootleg Bolan‘ reprising all the T. Rex / Marc Bolan music in one amazing night.

Aladdinsane – The Sound & Vision of Bowie is widely acclaimed as the best Bowie tribute band in the UK. They have played theatres, festivals and venues throughout the UK for the past 12 years. Paul Henderson’s performance as David Bowie has audiences commenting how eerily close his voice, moves and mannerisms are to that of Bowie himself.

Paul Henderson first caught national attention when he appeared on Stars In Their Eyes in 1993, where he performed Space Oddity, dressed as Bowie’s legendary Ziggy Stardust. From there he performed at conventions around the country as Bowie.

The line up of the band has been refined during the 2000s and now comprises Steve Beeston on keyboards, Carl Stones on guitar, Franco Caprio on bass, Rick Cook on drums, with Paul as Bowie on 12 string acoustic, to make the sound of Aladdinsane the band it is today.

Aladdinsane cover all of the hits – Space Oddity, Changes, Ashes To Ashes, Heroes, Let’s Dance, Drive-In Saturday, Jean Genie, Life On Mars, Fame, Starman, Diamond Dogs – and include some classic album tracks from Bowie’s vast repertoire. Paul’s outfits reflect Bowie’s tours from 1976 to 2003.

 

Bootleg Bolan – notes from the band:
With the loss of Bobby TooREX leaving an enormous hole in the live performance of T.Rex songs, we decided to form a NEW T.Rex Tribute Supergroup, to be called “Bootleg Bolan” (original eh..?!😉).
But why “supergroup” I hear you ask..? Well, coz we’ve picked out some of the finest T.Rex tribute musicians available to be part of it, including “Stars in Their Eyes” finalist Rob Cairns, Ant Cook from Tyrannosaurus Jed, Ian Zapper Francis from TooREX, Noel Zipgun Boshell from Zapper’s old band The Fabulous Wartburgs, and TooREX dep drummer Martin Jellyroll Scott.
Playing all your favourite T.Rex songs plus some less well-known gems Bootleg Bolan aim to keep regular gig-goers as well as fully-fledged Boleys happy.
