The Annual Esquires BowieJam 2024

January 7 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us on the 77th anniversary of David Bowie’s birth to celebrate his life in music… The very best of Bedford’s local musicians play tribute to the Starman.
This is the ONLY way to start the New Year!
What is BowieJam like?
The BowieJam is a unique jam night event at Esquires, in that you can show up with your guitar, bass, drumsticks, voice and make some music.
Where it is different is that it has a theme and a little more structure to it. David Bowie released 26 studio albums between 1967 – 2016 but, without a guiding hand, we could end up with Ziggy Stardust twenty times.
We have a house band called Weird & Gilly who are on hand to support anyone who needs us. If you want to play guitar but need backing, we are there to help. I ask that anyone wanting to come and play a specific song email Charly (The Host) at porcelainwhite@gmail.com so that we can get you on the list and make sure we have your tune rehearsed. (with song requests, the catalogue is big enough not to repeat songs if you are up for it!) There will be local bands coming along to do their versions of David Bowie hits – some will be faithful covers, others personal renditions.
We will also again be raising money for Bedford Daycare Hospice in his name. (Last year we raised a total of £358)
