In 2017, the 9 musicians came together to form this professional tribute band. Thin White Duke's collective passion and efforts grew out of a strong desire to pay tribute to what they loved most: David Bowie
With a charismatic frontman and Bowie sound-a-like vocalist Aschwin Schreiber, Thin White Duke takes you back to the decades when Bowie dominated the charts and stages around the world.
He is musically supported by:
Margriet Groenhof - backing vocals
Sandra Jungschläger - backing vocals
Michael Phoenix - lead guitar
Sanny Pepper - guitar and percussion
Diederik Wentink - keyboards
Bram 't Hart - bass
Noël van Eersel - drums
Maarten Elzinga - saxophone
The name Thin White Duke comes from one of Bowie's characters he introduced during his tour promoting the album Young Americans in 1976. A character Bowie played in the movie "The man who fell to earth", based on Thomas Jerome Newton. Thin White Duke combines Bowie's legendary songs with powerful vocals, a roller coaster of flashy guitar solos, rousing bass and drums and the harmonic sounds of the keyboards.
