With the passing of David Bowie, enquiries have been coming in thick and fast for our stunning tribute to the Starman.
Like many tribute artists, Jean Genie is not just a singer in his own right but a dedicated and loving fan of the man he impersonates making this tribute one of the finest and most accurate out there.Through tribute shows such as this, fans can continue to enjoy the music (and costumes!) of one of Britains most-loved artists.
In the late 1990s John was approached by David Bowie’s famous band the Spiders from Mars and was asked by them if he’d front the band and tour with them. Obviously John accepted the offer and John remains to this day to be one of only a few tribute artists to tour and perform with an original artist’s band. John also played harmonica and sang backing vocals with Def Leopards Joe Elliott on the spiders from mars cybaunauts album.
John owes a lot of his experience of working in theatres and opera houses to Mike Southon aka Mike Fab Gere.
They both met on the Big Breakfast TV show in the early 90s and later teamed up together when Mike asked if John would tour in Mikes very own rock musical called Freak Out. More recently they found themselves performing again on stage in Moscow Russia.
John has undertaken many press/radio interviews touring extensively around the world playing the part of David Bowie. These days John prides himself on the quality of his voice, mannerisms and overall style to the late great David Bowie, many of John’s latest performances have been with Trevor chances highly successful show 'Legends' in Blackpool.
To all of Bowie's fans - young, old and those yet to discover his legacy, take a listen to the work of this brilliant performer who has dedicated his life to imitating this legend and his (almost) inimitable style!
