The band gained great fame through their successful participation in the TV program "The Tribute - Battle of the Bands", where they received high praise from jury and audience with their powerful and emotionally charged renditions of Bowie's big hits. In the process, frontman Rias Baarda comes eerily close to David Bowie in terms of voice and stage presence at times, "as if he were there again...".
And that didn't go unnoticed by some very special people either... Recently, compliments came his way from some musicians from Bowie's entourage, such as Ava Cherry, Carmine Rojas and Mike Garson!

Ava Cherry (former lover and former backing vocalist David Bowie): "I really enjoyed him... I think he has the chance to be something great... he has some tones very much like David... his energy... he really loves singing Bowie songs and being what that is... I really like him and I think he has the chance of coming up and what I heard is really wonderful."
Carmine Rojas (former David Bowie bassist): " They're actually pretty good I like it with the horns... a good drummer too!"
Mike Garson (former David Bowie pianist): "He's good, nice feel! Loves the music."

Expect a wonderful journey through Bowie's oeuvre. From the well-known classics to the pearls from the deep sea, all framed by the most wonderful anecdotes. An absolute must-see, for the inveterate Bowie fan but also certainly for the absolute beginner.
