7/10/18 - Thank you to everyone for coming along to Brentwood Theatre on Friday. It made our night to see such an enthusiastic crowd at our first visit to the venue. It was great being able to speak some of you straight after the show. So many positive comments it was truly humbling. Always inspiring to hear the passion people still have for David's music. 

As usual, the gig was filmed and you may have noticed a professional photographer present throughout the evening. We also have a desk recording of the entire night, so there will some more videos edited in due course.

We have some interesting plans in the works and will be retiring to the studio to prepare. We're sure you won't be disappointed.

23/8/18 - Tickets now available for our next gig at Brentwood. See link on gigs page!

18/8/18 - Wow! What a night it was at Witney Music Festival yesterday. So pleased to see so many people turning out for this wonderful event. Many thanks to 'Kassettika' and 'The Standard' for supporting and congratulations to 'Noasis' for putting on a stunning headline show. We have some great video from the show and will post it on You Tube very soon.

Our next gig is at Brentwood Theatre, Brentwood, Essex on 5/10/18. Tickets will be available very soon, hopefully by this coming Monday. Brentwood will be the first gig for our new keyboard player Ben. 

 

We wish Paul all the very best for his new life in Spain.

It's been an absolute pleasure performing alongside you.  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

26/7/18 - A big thank you to all that turned out to Chinnerys last weekend. We had a blast and we hope you did too. In case you missed it, we debuted four new songs including Quicksand, Blue Jean, Golden Years and the Lulu version of The Man Who Sold The World. We also introduced our new keys player Ben. Sadly, Paul will be moving to Spain in a couple of months and we were fortunate to have both Ben and Paul performing a couple of songs together at Chinnerys. If only we could keep both of them!

The next gig is Witney Music Festival, Oxfordshire. This is a free festival and we are performing on Friday the 17th which will be devoted exclusively to tribute bands. We will be on stage at 8.35pm which is the slot immediately prior to the headliners 'Noasis'.

Come down if you can - it's sure to be a great weekend!

26/5/18 - Wow! What a year it's been so far. Thanks to everyone who came to our cosy little gig at The Bassment in Chelmsford last night and long overdue thanks to everyone that came to the theatre shows at The Mercury (Colchester) and The Millfied (Enfield).

 

Tickets are now on sale for our next show which is at Chinnerys on Saturday 21st July 2018. This will the last Essex show with our keys player Paul Rawlins before he moves to Spain, so expect a few surprises for this show!

8/1/18 - Thank you to everyone who came to our show at Mill Hall, Rayleigh yesterday. It was an absolute honour to play to such a wonderfully enthusiastic crowd. Also, a big thank you to our support band, Sans Wilfred, who performed a brilliant set.

We are pleased to announce that we will be supported at this gig by an incredibly talented local band 'Sans Wilfred'. As well as our fabulous regular guest vocalist Natalie, we will also be joined by special guest 'Rent Treznor'. It promises to be a fantastic evening to celebrate what would have been David's 71st birthday and the second anniversary of his death.

We look forward to seeing you there.

19/9/17 - Thank you to everyone who came to see us at Chinnerys on Saturday. Not three new songs, but four! We threw an extra one just for the hell of it.

Tickets will go on sale for the January gig at Mill Hall, Rayleigh soon.

9/7/17 - Another fantastic show for us at Hylands Park, Chelmsford last Thursday. Thank you to everyone who turned out. It was great to see some regular faces and meet lots of new Bowie fanatics too. Our host, James Wilkinson, has already invited us back and we're looking forward to it already.

We hope you enjoyed our new opening number. It took quite a bit of work to get that one straight and we intend to play it many more times to come. We are in the early planning stages of what will sadly be our last public gig of 2017 at Chinnery's, Southend on September 16th. However, as always, new material is once again the subject of discussion and we're choosing new songs for that show right now. Never the same show twice should me our motto :-)

Tickets for Chinnery's will go on sale soon. Keep checking Facebook as there will be a post regarding both tickets new and material very soon!

8/3/17 - We're back in the studio this time next week to start prep for the Colchester Arts Centre gig. Lots of stuff to do on the tech side for this one. It's a big venue and offers us a lot more possibilities in terms of how the show can look and sound. As usual, we plan to offer some new (to us) Bowie material. Really looking forward to this one. if you don't have your tickets already, head to the link on the show page.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It will be our first visit to this venue and we're cooking up a few surprises for you. Have a great weekend.     

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

7/2/17 - Just 10 days to go now until ChangesTwoBowie return to The Bassment, Chelmsford.

Have fun - see you there!

3/1/17 - I hope 2017 finds you all well and not too strung out after the festive season? The band had one final gig in December, a private one in Derbyshire, which was a blast. Our client had this to say:

"....I can't thank you enough for your superb performance on the night and especially the way you and the guys embraced the whole spirit of the occasion. I've had nothing superlatives for what an exceptional evening it was and you and the band have been the centre of the comments.

 

Many, many, thanks."

2017 promises to be a busy year for us. We'll be back in the studio soon learning some new material and we have loads of planning to do for our show in April.

Meanwhile, the tickets for the show at The Bassment, Chelmsford on 17/2/17 should go on sale this week. A mail shot will be sent out to our subscribers with the link as soon as we have it.

That's all for now. 

Happy New Year.

18/12/16 - Well, one week to go until Christmas! Where did that year go?

Only one more gig (a private one) for the band before the end of 2016, but we will be back at The Bassment, Chelmsford on February 17th with even more new songs added to the ever expanding set. Tickets will be available very shortly. I'm sure we will see some familiar faces there.

Tickets are now available for our "All Golden Years" show at Colchester Arts Centre on April 8th via the BUY TICKETS button on the show page. This promises to be another fantastic night and is very well advertised by the venue, so get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Further shows have also been added to the show page for later in 2017. 

Just added to the VIDEO page is FASHION which is from our show at Chinnery's on 25/11/16.

 

Also, added to the AUDIO page is ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS from the same show featuring the wonderful Natalie JENKIN-SMITH on backing vocals. Literally goosebumps and I've heard it like a hundred times already. We also have a partial video of that song, so we'll try and put something together to go with the audio file at some point.

I'm sure we will see some of you at the Celebrating Bowie gig at Brixton in January.

Until then C2B wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New year.

Stay safe and have a good time, all the time :-)

26/11/16 - Thank you to everyone who came along to Chinnery's last night. A fabulous night celebrating the legacy of David Bowie. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We've had loads of video clips added to our Facebook feed, so do check them out. We also recorded the audio of most of the gig which we will post as soon as soon as it is mixed. If you have any further video or photos, please do send them to us. We have one more gig scheduled for this year which is a private affair, but we will be back with our first public gig of 2017 in February. Check the show page for details.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

17/11/16 - Tickets have sold really well for next Friday @ Chinnery's. There are still a few available, so if you haven't got yours yet, get in quick.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2/11/16 - Another Wednesday, another rehearsal. The band were on fire this evening! Unfortunately we've had to pull one of the new tunes we had planned for the Chinnery's gig. It was a tough call, but a sensible decision as time is against us. However, we do have six, YES SIX, new songs in the set for this gig and we couldn't be more excited about presenting them to you. Three of the new songs will feature the fantastic Natalie Jenkin-Smith on vocals. The only down side to having so much new material is that some equally great tracks will have to sit it out this time round. But hey, you can't play 'em all right?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

20/10/16 - Well, more new material in the bag from last nights rehearsal, including quite a few new songs featuring the wonderful Natalie Jenkin-Smith who will once again be joining us @ Chinnery's in November. Another gig date will be added to the calendar very shortly for early 2017. So keep checking back or more details. See y'all soon! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8/10/16 - CHANGESTWOBOWIE are pleased to announce a confirmed date for 2017 at a special venue in the Essex area. We can't say too much more at the moment, but definitely put this date in your diaries!
