A Night of Bowie

A definitive Bowie experience with Syl Thompson and his band Ground Control

David Bowie is one of music history’s most praised and successful artists, with a career that spanned four decades. Bowie continuously sought to reinvent himself, while selling an estimated 140 million albums. His genre-defying journey through a vast array of musical styles, from rock to funk, dance to ballad, always kept fans guessing what he would do next.

A Night Of Bowie: The Definitive Bowie Experience is a celebration of Bowie’s extensive list of memorable hits, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on his peak years from the early ’70s to the early ’90s. The show is eerily close to hearing and seeing Bowie himself.

Since the early ‘80s, Victoria-based musician Syl Thompson and his band Ground Control have been paying tribute to Bowie’s music with respect and pride. Thompson embodies Bowie’s musical style and persona—in fact, he has been acclaimed as providing the most credible and realistic Bowie experience in North America.
