(New Orleans; October 1, 2019): Break out your bell-bottoms and platform shoes November 2!
Seventies tribute band Glamarama beams you back in time to the early, influential glam rock era with the music of David Bowie, T-Rex, Roxy Music, Alice Cooper, Sweet, and others during a “double feature” show at Bamboula’s Frenchmen Theatre.
Front man David Otillio rocks, shocks, and bedazzles audiences in the style of the glitter era. Glamarama features Brad Orgeron (Backstabbers) on guitar, James Singletary (Red Rockers) on lead guitar, and drummer Bryan Barberot. Multi-talented musician Dave Stocker tickles the keyboards, and Karen Anklem wails on the saxophone. Blythe Crawford, a new addition to the band, plays bass. Anklem and Crawford also contribute backup vocals.
For the LGBTQ+ community, the glam era represented the first time gender non-conformity went mainstream. “Young people likely got their first glimpse of musicians on TV sporting androgynous looks with outrageous fashions and make-up during this groundbreaking period,” said Otillio.
One price includes two different sets. There will be a one-hour intermission for food & drinks.
Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. Bamboula’s Frenchmen Theatre (in back), 516 Frenchmen Street, New Orleans.
General admission: $10, limited reserved seating: $25. Tickets: facebook.com/glamaramanola/
