Stardust to Ashes
What began as a fun “side project” of an already established band, Stardust to Ashes has suddenly exploded into the most in demand David Bowie tribute in the Mid-Atlantic region.
After only a couple of sold out appearances in their hometown of Raleigh, NC, the band is now booking venues where they will perform for thousands.
These venues include the likes of The Ritz Raleigh and Charlotte’s Fillmore.
The band includes frontman and lead vocalist Steve Baker; Duncan Baker on bass/vocals; Steven Coon on guitar/vocals; Scott Harrell on drums/vocals; Randy Ines on keyboards/guitar/vocals and Danie Ward on keyboard/vocals.
Together they have created a stunningly accurate and respectful representation of Bowie’s final and most critically acclaimed touring years.
One observer stated, “It’s like Stardust to Ashes has picked up where Mr. Bowie left off when he could no longer tour.”
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Aug. 3, at The Senate, 1022 Senate St.
Tickets cost $10 in advance; $15 day of show; $100 for four top table. www.thesenatecolumbia.com.
