"David Bowie was a great friend to
myself and my dad (Tony Mascia, David Bowie's body guard). It was
great reliving all those songs, just like I remembered them growing
Brighton is dead on as David Bowie. I was totally impressed and in
awe. Thanks for a wonderful evening..."
"YOU MUST SEE DAVID BRIGHTON. HE WILL FREAKING CHANGE YOUR LIFE.."
“I have seen David perform and every
show is amazing…every bit as good as seeing the real David Bowie.
David is very much the showman…. It was amazing to see him work
that stage... and the costumes are all top notch. This is
the reason David Brighton and Space Oddity is one of the top
tribute bands and travel all across the country to
was a bit cynical. But you blew my mind. You're amazing... every
nuance. Even more impressive, you're lovely. To everyone. Thanks so
much for a spectacular show. Loved it! Loved you!”
"If anyone hasn't seen one of David Brighton's shows, you have no
idea what you are missing. His shows will blow you away...”
"I'm a BIG Bowie fan...saw the 1972 Santa Monica Ziggy
shows and every tour since. As a life long Bowie fan it was
great to see you guys....what a great show. You really blew my
"I was totally blown away by your
truly incredible performance. The way you look,
the sound of your voice, and the way you move...is just like the
real David Bowie. I have seen some truly fantastic tribute bands....but I can honestly say that
you are by far the best. No other tribute act can compare
to you. I was completely mesmerized by your performance... you have the same charisma and intense appeal as your
"David Brighton actually is the
only chap out there capable of doing justice when simulating a
force like Mr. Bowie. I know the business well, and what David does
is pure top shelf impersonation. An unbelievable show good people,
do yourself a favor, especially if you ever saw the man, see Mr.
Brighton walk the walk!"
"As I listened to the intro to STATION TO STATION
and David Brighton came out
as the "Thin White Duke," I didn't realize until a minute had
passed that my jaw had dropped open and I couldn't take my eyes off
of him. I was blown away!! I just couldn't believe what I was
seeing and hearing...WOW... Absolutely loved it!!"
Brighton has Bowie, DOWN - sounds like him, looks like him, moves
like him... The band is called Space Oddity... Being
an old Bowie fan, I was very critical, but I'm totally taken... absolutely
"You guys did such
a great show! People in the crowd were reacting as if David Bowie
was really playing for us. I'm still not sure that he wasn't!
poor tributes out there, good tributes and great tributes.... then
there is David Brighton - a different class."
and I have been Bowie fans for 20+ years. When we
came to Vegas for our anniversary, we saw you were playing at the
Cannery Casino. I have to say that first we were in awe of how much
you sounded like Bowie, then how flawless the band was and before
you knew it, we actually forgot that we WEREN’T at a Bowie concert.
One of the best things about your show is that you didn’t just play
the safe, popular Bowie, you actually played some awesome but less
known tunes, which was greatly appreciated by the diehard
took us on a great trip... We stayed up most of
the night talking about what a great time we had.
You and the
Space Oddity band really made
our trip to Vegas."
"I am a BIG fan of David
Brighton's. David Bowie is a
genius and only David Brighton can do him right."
"David Brighton isn't just the best David Bowie tribute artist, He's THE BEST TRIBUTE ARTIST! He's the standard all tribute artists aspire to... or should, ego aside..."
- RG Stewart
BEST BOWIE IMPERSONATOR IN THE WORLD, BY A
The consummate Bowie, a Bowie fan's
Bowie, the ultimate Bowie impersonator!!!"
and I recently had the great pleasure to see David perform.... What
a remarkable and unbelievable show. Bowie was a staple of our
music listening as we were dating, so David’s performance brought
back some truly memorable times. I can’t say enough about the
authenticity of your performance and the fun and joy it brought to
our evening. Thank you for a tremendous show. Wishing you and
the band continued success in the years to come."
"Thanks for making my trip to Las Vegas an extremely memorable
one! You guys blew all my expectations out of the water, truly
fantastic! Spectacular attention to detail in every way. "Sweet
Thing" was great... I never thought I'd ever see that done live in
my life! You left me with the same great feeling like after seeing
the Man himself in concert, which I never thought possible. You made this Bowie fan VERY
is the first guy I have seen who can actually pull off a good
imitation of Bowie singing and performing. I cant even
watch anyone else try."
"I caught the
show at Pala Casino and was blown away; no doubt that David
Brighton is the unchallenged champion. The young lady (keyboardist)
also displayed amazing talent. It was difficult to believe that a
petite woman could produce such a powerful voice. Anyway, yours is
an inspiring presentation..."
"I have to admit that I was not a real big
Bowie fan until I saw your performance.
You made me see just HOW big an influence David Bowie is
in the music industry. I was taken with your
performance and that of your band. Brooke is absolutely incredible!
My wife and I have been back to
see you many times and will continue to do so. I tell people that
if they see your performance, they’ll be hard pressed to know that
they haven’t seen Bowie. Thanks again!"
"I have been
a huge Bowie fan since 1973. We first saw your band last
summer. The band played one of my all time favorite Bowie
songs, 1984/Dodo. It sounded note perfect. Before seeing the band
perform, I was hesitant in believing someone could actually create
a Bowie tribute - simply because Bowie's persona is so unique, and
he created a new artistic presence with almost every album. You do
an amazing job! Any Bowie fan would be blown away by your visual
and musical accuracy. I have made it a point to share that with all
of the Bowie fans I know. I look forward to seeing you again."
"We both absolutely enjoyed the show to
the utmost! You are amazing, and you have a fantastic band, superb
playing. We saw the Serious Moonlight Tour over 20 yrs ago... and
watching you tonight... WoW! Very Professional - just amazing
- I must
say, you and the young man who sang Under Pressure with you - omg.... amazing....Just keep doing what you're doing..."
"Tonight David Brighton is David
"David Brighton is the
closest living thing in resemblance to Bowie... it's like you're seeing him. Not the
Bowie of today, but the Bowie of 1972, '73, '74, '80, '83. Fans will be treated
to those distinct Bowie personas. It's tantamount to seeing the real Bowie."
"If you ever get the chance...see
this band! David Brighton is truly amazing... Even the REAL DAVID BOWIE agrees that of all the
"impersonators" this guy is the best."
"We love you as we love
Bowie. Everyone around us loved you as much as we did. Thank
you so much."
"I have never written to any other
performer before, but I have to say that you guys deserve this
exception. What my girlfriend, and I witnessed last night was
nothing short of eye popping, jaw dropping, musical magic... Absolutely Brilliant !!!!!"
"I just saw his show in Las Vegas,
and was lucky enough to be in the front row. I've seen Bowie in
concert many times and can say I was very impressed with the entire
show, everybody had a great time..."
"I just saw (Space Oddity)
last night in Indio, CA and I have to say that it was the best show
ever! David Brighton was as spot on as Bowie himself. Thank you (Space Oddity) for
letting me relive my seventeen year old self again! It was amazing
and I can't wait to see you again!"
"I found the concert to be superb. I
have watched Bowie live on three occasions and felt as good coming
out after your show as I did watching the real thing..."
"You were bloody BRILLIANT on
stage... we LOVED IT!!! Thanks for being our
"THANKS for another wonderful and fun
show! Every time I see the band perform -- you've added something
great and inspired..."
"David Brighton is the Bowie
appetizer! This weekend I had the pleasure of getting a really
great BowieFix. Granted, it was in bloody California (I live on the
East Coast) - but, it was well worth it. He CAN sing/dance/act like
the Englishman! I was like...omg, it's just like it was in
1973...and then I remembered I wasn't born yet. I was well
impressed. I highly recommend that ANY
OF YOU needing a GREAT BowieFix, and you're ANYWHERE near this
guy...go and see him. He's a blast. An excellent performer. And one
hell of a nice guy. I love that you do this David... I can't say
that enough. Thank you for the flashback! You do it, and you do it SOOO well! You
sound amazing, you've
got the character down. Now David CAN hire you as his
stand-in. No one would ever know."
"David Bowie is my favorite rock
and roll artist of all time. I'm impressed with your impression of
his work. I love your wild costumes and how you incarnate so many Bowie
personas in one show. I also LOVED that you played Station to
Station (such a great song). Your band is fantastic and
your "Mick Ronson" is great. I am very much looking forward to
upcoming shows and bringing friends of mine who have never seen your band, to
introduce them to a new experience."
"I want to thank you for the great show in Edmonton. It was a real pleasure
for my friends and I to finally see you perform. Your band sounds
amazing, and you delivered not only very successful crowd
pleaser, classic Bowie songs, but also, the more obscure choices
the VERY obscure I Feel Free) which were very
"Indeed ... the definitive
doppelganger of our Thin White Duke. Glam on."
"I've seen many, many Bowie Tribute Bands over the years and must
say you beat them all hands down. What a great compliment to the
Guvnor you are. Wishing you and the Band all the
"It was a great show.... As a lifelong Bowie fan I was expecting
a lot and was not disappointed. Thank you for doing such a great
job and letting me fulfill my lifelong dream to see Ziggy on stage!"
"My Queen tribute, Queen Nation, had the pleasure
of playing with Space Oddity a few months back...
These guys (and gal!) are as good as it gets. Period. And YES, we
did the coolest version of Under Pressure
"Enjoyed the show at the O.C. Pavilion. Amazing show David... Your
musically Amazing....GREAT players. I enjoyed your singing and
almost Hedwig like stage patter between songs. I was SHOCKED
that you played lesser known Bowie classics like STAY and
A CIRCLE! That was GREAT! I overheard that you almost
played DIAMOND DOGS. That would be great too. Paul Nelson your "Mick Ronson" was
amazing not only with his note-for-note re-creations on guitar, but
his singing - doing the Freddie Mercury part on UNDER PRESSURE
was Jaw-Dropping! Your show was one of the best mixed
performances I've ever witnessed. The sound was amazing. Whoever
does your sound... my hat's off. I also
appreciated you MESSING UP for a second and saying "Oops! Bootleg
version" during the show. You guys were TOO PERFECT and to see
a Mess-Up from the perspective of an envious fellow musician was
appreciated! You ARE HUMAN! You and the band
are GREAT! - Nuff said !!!
"I was amazed at how much David embodied Bowie's mannerisms and
charisma. I absolutely loved the show; I had an amazing time and
would love to see him again... I am recommending it to
all my friends..."
"I caught the act for the first time at Pala Casino. Unbelievably
great! I grew up on Bowie (the first album I ever bought was Space
Oddity). Thanks for bringing back
all those treasured memories."
“I was extremely impressed with David Brighton's
The Tribute show in Myrtle Beach... David's act was
amazing and his likeness to the real Bowie is uncanny… he sang,
looked, and acted just like Bowie! He is certainly a talent… I look
forward to seeing him perform again in the future. Amazing!”
"I saw the show at
The Grove in Anaheim. I really enjoyed the medley performed by
David Brighton... Opening with
Rebel a la Bowie's
but shortened a bit to lead into many of Bowie's early 70's songs
(e.g. Oh, You Pretty Things, Space
Oddity, Changes, Life on Mars,
etc.). He was wearing a typical costume that Bowie wore during the
same genre. Then as the stage darkened, he left the stage to change,
while we were just dazzled with the
preamble. And as befitting to the "Thin White Duke" era, Brighton
changed hairstyles and costume to resemble the Bowie of the Golden
Years with the slicked-back red hair and baggy suit pants with
dress shoes, vest and all. During the final set, Brighton dressed like
the "Serious Moonlight" Bowie and danced with the audience right below
the stage, while singing songs like Let's Dance, China Girl,
Under Pressure and Modern Love and having a blast. I thought the show was excellent and he really
played to the audience well.
I've been to eleven
Bowie concerts and I
totally enjoyed (Brighton's) set and his presentation!
Brighton is entirely entertaining, and I'd pay twice my ticket
price to see him again. I was treated to an imaginative
"The reason David Brighton is so good is because he is
such a perfectionist, paying attention to every detail.”
"David Brighton is just brilliant. I saw him at The
Tribute in Myrtle Beach in August, and was mesmerized by
him. It was just like he was channeling David Bowie himself on
stage. He is also very, very handsome."
"David Brighton does an incredible Bowie!!!"
"David Brighton's David
Bowie show is the best tribute act that there is..."
"I so thought that you were David Bowie, I
am a big fan and man... you rock. Love it, love it, love it."
your band... you've made me a David Bowie fan when I wasn't before.
Thanks for your talent, I hope all the best for you David and all
your band mates."
insane. I watched and listened... I kept saying 'that's crazy!' …all
in all-triple whoa!"
"WOW!! WHATTA great show last night!
incarnate!! Packed house as always and just an ear-to-ear
grinner of a show!!! David and the Band are
Lots of tributeers in the audience last night too.... great people and great music.
I highly recommend that EVERYONE see this show!!! I had a blast
and I'm sure you will too! Check them out!
...a MUST SEE!!!!
I forgot to mention that David is one of the busiest and finest
Georges in the Beatle tribute biz. Any show he does is a great
show, but the full Bowie tribute is really a dazzler!"
"I didn't think it possible, but there
it is! If they ever decided to do a
sequel to one of Bowie's movies, but needed a younger person,
David Brighton could easily step in. Keep up the good
"You were INCREDIBLE! I was left speechless and
amazed by everything you did. (Your show) exceeded my already high expectations
and I really really hope I get to see you all perform again! Thank you for
everything! I love you all!"
"Well done David and band! You guys were so
awesome last night I was getting chills the whole time! Thank you
for rocking my world with Width of a Circle and
Hang On To Yourself. Paul is Mick Ronson reborn, I'm sure of it! I'm dying to see what
you look like on a daily basis when you aren't busy being Bowie's
is David Bowie and his show, Space Oddity,
will make you a believer. The lights, flash, special effects and the killer band
together with the classic songs like Ziggy Stardust, Young
Americans and Fame will leave you absolutely stunned... this
performer is amazing. David has traveled the world both as a member in
various Beatle tribute bands and as David Bowie.
David is a chameleon, and
shows you the many "looks" of David Bowie from the glam rocker to the
present. One of the best Tribute Artists and shows on the circuit
today. If you ever get the chance to see this show, don't pass on it."
“I was blessed to get to see David Brighton perform at
Tribute in Myrtle Beach. I was completely blown away. I've
never gotten to see Bowie live, so for me, this was seeing Bowie
live. Everything was just spectacular! David, you're amazing!”
"THANK YOU for bringing us
dedicated bowie freaks an awesome David Bowie tribute. You look
almost exactly like David!"
"I think there should be David Brighton
"We opened for
Space Oddity and were blown away by David Brighton's accuracy, vocal
ability and stage presence. His band was also very tight and played
extremely well. It was freaky how much he looks and sounds like the
real David Bowie. I just couldn't imagine anyone doing it better. I
strongly recommend Space Oddity to fans and clients."
"An absolutely great evening. All
of your selections were good. My favorite tune was Ground Control
To Major Tom. Great visuals... great venue. Believe it or not, I was never a big Bowie
fan, so seeing your show made me realize how talented both you are
and he was. Your gal singer was excellent along with the guitar
player. A very, very, good show."
David Brighton would have a pretty good following in Australia!"
"YOU AND YOUR BAND ARE AWESOME, INCREDIBLE, AMAZING!!!
So special. Thank you SO MUCH for giving us the gift of being entertained
at such a high level. I have seen Bowie four times and (we) were just amazed by
your performance and your humor - but mostly your talent.
It was so FUN! And
Paul/Mick (Ronson) is awesome - how incredibly hot he plays - and what a doll.
He was great! Yara (on rhythm guitar) is absolutely lovely, she was fun to watch
and so talented and looked gorgeous. The
audience felt like a big family - that's not something you feel at most shows,
but I think you attract really great people. When you are on stage your
personality is right there with David Bowie's persona and it's you that shines
through and endears you to your audience. Even this really macho guy next to me
(he had a few drinks) was saying how cool you are. It shows in YOUR EYES and
your smile... EXCELLENT SHOW.
I would have paid double to see you."
"Just saw your show. Very
impressed and moved too. I saw Bowie live in '72 (Ziggy), '74
(Diamond Dogs), and later ('77?) as the Thin White Duke. You gave
me goose bumps and brought back a flood of warm
memories. I had never thought anyone could do that, but you did.
Keep going, you are (all of the band) awesome. Love on ya!"
"I just had a wonderful time at your show...
you had me out of my seat in no time dancing to your music. You have a
wonderful voice and your band is awesome."
"I saw Space Oddity at Pala Casino; and all
I can say is WOW, definitely one of the BEST bands I have
ever had the pleasure of seeing. AMAZING!"
takes a lot to be a Bowie tribute act and you've pulled it off
EXTREMELY well. Rock on!"
Brighton is a genius! Anyone who can "do" Bowie, is pure genius! As an
avid Bowie fan, your costumes and impressions are mind blowing! Thank
you for doing this! I wonder what David thinks! Amazing! LOVE
show...one of the best I've seen."
have been a huge fan of Bowie and especially love his works during
70's. To be honest with you, I had not expected so much from you. I
just had thought you would have been another tribute band who play
hit songs for casual fans - until I saw you live last Friday. I was
blown away when you kicked off the show with "Station To Station" -
and I realized that your costume was similar to the one of Bowie's
"Station To Station" tour in 1976 (I have the bootleg called "Raw
Moon Rehearsals - Vancouver 1976"). I immediately recognized that
you are the one to whom all real Bowie fans pay attention - not
just a casual fans pleaser. Not only David, but the band is also
great - they cover such a wide range of Bowie's music - with high
skill. The real fans in front of the stage never let you go
until after the 2nd encore. That was the proof
how great you are - I will keep going to your show at every
opportunity. The satisfaction I got on that night was far greater
than the Van Halen show which cost $170!"
"David Brighton, David Bowies' most remarkable impersonator...
didn't get any plastic surgery! He is a very convincing
impersonator. His figure, the shape of his face, the way he moves, the
voice. Of course you can still tell the difference but… you could certainly believe it is him."
"Your show was too great for words... You
and your band sounded so much like Bowie, you've done such a great job
capturing his sound...you are as close to the real McCoy as anyone will ever
possibly see... I was just amazed. I'll be at every show I can
"Wooow!! Fantastic show !!! If you love David Bowie you'll have to see this
David Brighton (Mr. Space Oddity!) sooooooooo rocks!!!
And Tuesday Knight is soooo
kewl! If you go,
Brighton is sooo much fun!"
"I loved the show last night. My friend and I had
great seats, but we didn't sit in them very much because the music
was infectious. We had wanted to tell you how uncanny the
performance was, after the show... but we had a two hour drive in
front of us, and I had to work this morning at 8am. Yikes. Thanks
for a great show..."
"I love your band... you've made a
David Bowie fan when I wasn't before. Thanks for your talent, I hope
all the best for you David and all your bandmates."

"I have been wanting to see
for months and finally made the drive last
night! Great job, spot on,
brilliant! David, your mannerisms, singing style and look are pure
Bowie! I had a great time and hope to see you all perform again
"Wow... You are really incredible as
Bowie... I enjoyed every moment."
"I had the privilege of seeing you in Santa Barbara...
Absolutely ORGASMIC. You truly tickled my fancy. Thank you!"
"Whether it's art imitating life or life
imitating art, YOU are a superb & amazingly gifted talent!!! The
Bowie man must be proud/flattered..."
"David - You are a visual genius getting the
myriad of Bowie looks down. Beautiful... excellent work."
"I really dug the band...the two gals on stage add a lot too...(really
liked the keyboard player). I brought a bunch of folks down and will continue to
spread the gospel of Space Oddity to my friends."
"I have been a Bowie fan for most
of my life but have never enjoyed seeing him live. I never thought I would be
able to experience Bowie...but (Space Oddity) proved me wrong. And what's
almost as good as the band is being surrounded by all those other people who
are just as into it as I am! It's fantastic, and I really do count the days
between (their) shows."
