David (Ziggy) (V) — The Surrogate Band Presents: A Bowie Tribute Show

Originally formed in 2011 by members of Kali-Ra , Psychic Milk, The Venditos , and a small constellation of musicians associated with ACM at UCO for an extravagant performance of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, the Surrogate Band has reformed for a series of David Bowie tribute shows. Their final Oklahoma performance, featuring elaborate costumes, hair, and makeup to reflect the different periods in the chameleon-like singer’s career, is this at VZD’s Restaurant and Club in Oklahoma City.

David Goad (Kali-Ra, Of the Tower) portrays Bowie accompanied by guitarists Justin Hogan (Bowlsey, Psychic Milk) and Chris Wilson (guitar instructor at Maughan Studios), bassist Gabriel Barham (The Venditos, Starcruisers), keyboardist Richie Zenner (The Venditos, The Planets Align, and Holloweye), drummer Chris Sanders (The Venditos, The Planets Align), and saxophonist Mike Mitchell (Captain Eyeball). Rounding out the band are backing vocalists J. R. Reagor (who also provides utility percussion) and Amy Downes. Both singers also perform solo outside The Surrogate Band.

Kristine Kamen manages the stage and provides key costume and makeup, with additional hair and makeup provided by Revel Eight Salon and Spa.

Note

M-mount lenses do not provide aperture information to the camera body, either electronically or mechanically. Therefore, f-stop settings are approximate, and are probably wildly inaccurate. For what it’s worth, I usually shoot with my lenses wide open.
