A Dynamic Duo indeed!
On Saturday, July 14th, Venkman’s pays tribute to two of the most creative, dynamic, and powerful artists to ever grace the rock and roll stage. Two of Atlanta’s best tribute bands, Jerome Newton and the Band Who Fell to Earth, and The Sledgehammers will treat you to an evening of music by David Bowie and Peter Gabriel. How much awesomeness can one stage hold?
The Sledgehammers are an Atlanta based Peter Gabriel tribute band. They play selections from the icon’s legendary solo career with a heavy focus on the So and Us albums. Featuring 7 top notch musicians from over the vast Atlanta music scene, The Sledgehammers deliver a powerful and emotional show. The band approaches these unforgettable songs with a reverence to the man, his message and the level of musicianship this music deserves.
Jerome Newton and the Band Who Fell to Earth (the name is an allusion to Bowie’s iconic role in The Man Who Fell to Earth) has been called “a Bowie tribute for Bowie lovers”. They play music from his entire career – the hits and the deep cuts – with reverence and energy. They don’t try to “imitate” a particular phase – even Bowie himself brought a new persona to stage almost every year. Instead they bring their own approach to the material – never straying far from the source, but never coming off as mere imitators either. Their music, their look, their lively stage show, all combine to create a memorable experience. Come see for yourself!
