In the wake of rocker David Bowie's death, the folks at the Music Box Supper Club wanted to find a unique way to pay homage to "one of the most iconic rock stars of all time." Founded in 1999 by writer and artist Greg "Ionman" Tate, Burnt Sugar Arkestra came to mind as "a group of players that can do justice to Bowie’s wide spectrum of musical grooves and his sense of the exotic."
The Burnt Sugar Arkestra can cover the wide range of music for which Bowie was known. Rolling Stone
's David Fricke calls them “a multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis.” That's high praise coming from one of rock's best critics.
At 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27, the band will play a special tribute concert to Bowie at the Music Box
. Tickets are $18 advanced, $20 day of show. They go on sale tomorrow at 3 p.m.
