Damien Fell, from Alfie Bird & The Oobleck, wants to celebrate Bowie’s life as a fan after heavily influenced by his music from a young age. At the same time, Damien wants also to give something back to Macmillan Cancer Support:
“The fact that this iconic figure has been taken away from us has personally resonated with both myself and co-owner Andrew, as we have both been affected by Cancer by those close to us passing.”
“We saw this as a great opportunity to raise money for a cause that means a lot to us. Bowie was many a people’s hero, and the epitomy of rock star status, its only right that we send him off in a manner he would have appreciated.”
The band will be playing 2 sets with Mazzy Snape, Chris Wise and Joey Smith deejays. People are encouraged to dress up as Bowie for the occasion, with best costume winning a £50 bar tab on the night.
Tickets cost £12.50 and are available here.
The band, comprised of five members, has been performing David Bowie’s music for the last 8 years.
