Bowie convention, Bedford 25/02/12

At first I was not sure if I would be able to attend this convention and as it was the first one for many years, I really wanted to go. Luckily plans had worked out well and it was a great opportunity to catch up with friends and meet new people.
Live music and videos were shown throughout the day and everyone had a really good time. I was very impressed with a young girl called Funmi who did a wonderful cover of David’s song ‘Can You Hear Me’ from the ‘Young Americans’ album. She sang it beautifully with a really soulful voice and had only a guitar as backing.
It was good to see Lipstick Torpedo play a set of glamrock favourites again and to be invited onstage for a cover of the Velvets ‘White Light, White Heat’ (Bowie style of course). Last time I saw them was when we were on the same bill about 9 years ago. Finally, myself and the other performers shared vocals on ‘All The Young Dudes’ to finish the evening off.
It was really nice chatting to the many people I already knew there and to be introduced to many more.
