Juliet’s beautiful violin playing was a really wonderful addition to our wedding ceremony and reception. She was so generous and thoughtful in making sure the choice of music complemented the atmosphere we were looking for and the sound of strings resonating through the venues brought a very special feel to the day.
I’ve seen nothing else quite like The Bowie Lounge. Multimedia excursions into dance, movement, canvas and paint are anchored by clever, surprising, dramatic interpretations of those wonderful songs, infused with a deep love and understanding of Bowie’s own artistic method. Poignant and enchanting - and, just as importantly, huge fun.
A strange and wonderful experience, The Bowie Lounge blends music, painting, theatre and dance to create something which is joyful, melancholic and really rather moving. I absolutely loved it.
