*PLEASE NOTE* This is the evening performance, which takes place at The Exchange1856 on Howard St, North Shields NE301SE.

Donny McCaslin is best known as the saxophonist on David Bowie’s last album, Blackstar. The noted composer and bandleader has released a dozen albums over his genre-defying, Grammy-nominated career.

McCaslin began playing at age 12, and as a teenager, performed in his vibraphonist father's band in Santa Cruz. By high school, he had appeared multiple times at the Monterey Jazz Festival.

After attending Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship, McCaslin became a sought-after player in New York City. David Bowie saw McCaslin perform as soloist for the Maria Schneider Orchestra and brought in McCaslin’s progressive jazz quartet that came to define Blackstar's visionary stylistic fusion. As David Hadju wrote in The Nation, “Donny McCaslin was David Bowie’s David Bowie.”

In turn, Bowie influenced McCaslin, who fused alt-rock and jazz on his first album with lyrics, 2018’s BLOW.

Donny will play a full live set with his band Jason Lindner, Tim Lefebvre, Zach Danziger.


VERY SPECIAL GUEST support Kevin Armstrong

Kevin met David Bowie in late 1984, and worked with him on various projects including putting together his band and performing at the legendary Live Aid show at Wembley in July 1985, adding to the first Tin Machine lineup and co-writing songs including the title song for Bowie's Outside 1 album.

David Bowie introduced Kevin to Iggy Pop as guitarist on the the 1986 album Blah Blah Blah and Kevin became Iggy's bandleader in 86/87. He put together Iggy's touring band again from 2014 until 2019.

Kevin has worked with Morrissey, Grace Jones, Sinéad O’Connor, Prefab Sprout, Thomas Dolby, Transvision Vamp Brian Eno, Paul McCartney, Sandie Shaw, Gil Evans, Alien Sex Fiend, Keziah Jones and many many more.
