Bowie Tribute Band To Play London

on November 22, 1999

He's outrageous, he screams and he bawls...

David Bowie tribute artist John Mainwairing (pictured above) and his band Jean Genie play the Venue in London, this Friday 26th November. Somewhat bizarrely, and more by chance than design I suspect, the band are booked to play the capital just four days before the Bowie show at The Astoria! Bad timing, or what?

Having said that, if you do get a chance to see them, then check them out. Stalwarts of UK Bowie conventions, Jean Genie have built a solid reputation as a most convincing tribute to the sound and vision of David Bowie.
