First Band First Song – The Beginnings of David Bowie
The Konrads – Bowie's First Band
Rev. Alan Dodds has an amazing story to tell. He started David Bowie’s first band, The Konrads, and wrote Bowie’s first recorded song in 1963, the tape of which recently sold at auction for £40,000!
Alan will share his experience through the performance of rock ’n’ roll covers, photos of Bowie and the band, stories, inside information and a Q&A session. As part of the emerging UK music scene in the early 60s, he was influenced by jazz, blues and skiffle; he will bring this era to life explaining key developments that changed the course of musical history. He’ll share the tale of a blind date in ’64 that changed his life, led him to his Christian faith, and eventually to the vicarage. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and reminisce.
