Woody Woodmansey and Tony Visconti’s Holy Holy at the Town Hall.
My gig year has started a little later than originally planned, but sometimes thats how things happen. Last night was a trip to the Town Hall in Birmingham to see Holy Holy. A supergroup celebrating the music of David Bowie with original collaborators, drummer Woody Woodmansey and Tony Visconti playing bass.
Before the main event, John Bramwell singer, songwriter and charismatic story teller. Formerly the front man of I Am Kloot and now solo or with his band the Full Harmonic Convergence.
There were explanations for nearly being late, tales of his dog and songs of life and experience. A great voice and he’s coming back to Birmingham at the end of the year.
During the break the winter coats were removed and an array of various Bowie t-shirts walked by me. As my reviewer assured me, “it just had to be done”, it was great to see.
The Town Hall is a great venue for timekeeping, beautifully organised, so bang on time Holy Holy started the gig. Glenn Gregory was on vocal duty, I’ve seen him a few times and he is an excellent front man. Last night Bowie songs were delivered in Glenn’s style, which celebrated the music and Bowie. The packed audience were soon on their feet and the showmanship and power within the group was exceptional.
