Bootleg Bowie UK, aka Nick Butcher, is a fantastic tribute to the awesome David Bowie.

This highly entertaining one man show has been performed all over the UK and Ireland and even in the prestigious newly refurbished Savoy Hotel in London to top celebrities and fashion artists. Expect all the Bowie classic hits from two great decades including three iconic costumes changes.

It was only in an attempt to play more gigs during lean times with the group that Nick decided to start a solo tribute to David Bowie, whom he had long admired.

Some years on and Bootleg Bowie is going stronger than ever.

The show starts with a musical intro which gradually builds to a crescendo before launching into the first song of the evening at which point Ziggy Stardust appears in full regalia - spandex catsuit, bright red spikey hair and silver glitter boots The hits from this era quickly follow before the iconic character suddenly disappears and is replaced by another from Bowie's 1983 'Serious Moonlight' period.

The hits keep coming mixed of course with all the characterisms and moves associated with this great artist, until the first set finally comes to a close.

For this set a costume is taken from Bowie's more recent 'A Reality Tour', described by one critic as 'Shabby Chic Buccaneer'! The songs however remain classics from Bowie's 1970 and 1980 back catalogue, widely considered to be his best work.

As the show finally nears the end and not before at least one more encore, the great man leaves the stage and waves a last goodbye on what will not only have been a great evening for all, but also a trip back through time with an iconic legend, who changed the face of popular music and has been an inspiration to generations.

Bootleg Bowie UK is a fully self-contained show incorporating a large PA, lighting and backdrop starcloth. The P.A is versatile and compact and can be tailored to suit the venue size but is usually an EV/RCA rig with an approximate 3000watts output. The lighting is also variable but may consist of Martin Robo colours, various coloured moving Gobos, 300watt floods and some Floor lighting. In addition, Bootleg Bowie UK includes a sound engineer to ensure perfect results every time.

Nick played at my 40th party. His Bowie act was superb, the way he preformed Bowie through the years was brilliant. Everyone was up dancing and singing along to all his classic numbers. I would defiantly recommend Nick's act to anyone who is a Bowie fan, all round great entertainment.
