New York City – New Yorkers immediately fell in love with Strange Love as the band brought the house down on its debut tribute of David Bowie and the Depeche Mode in a two-hour tribute at Gramercy Theater on the lower east side.
Lead singer Devotional Dave (Freddie Morales) was absolutely graceful and magnetic, drawing the cheering crowd to sing and dance with him. “We love you, New York. We have made a long journey to be here with you tonight. We are friends already!,” his thunderous voice echoed the theater as the crowds cheer for more on a rainy Friday July 7 evening.
That David Bowie and Depeche Mode Experience was like looking at the real original performers, and the night couldn’t be better. The two-hour show extended for a few more minutes as the crowd roared “more more!”, and sang I just can’t get enough!
Strange Love is based in Los Angeles and has gained repute as the perfect band to reinterpret David Bowie (Julian Shah Tayler) and the Depeche Mode. Concert spectator Gary Landl has a much better remark: “He looked and sang better than David Bowie. Unbelievable!”
Music director Brent Meyer, who personifies the Counterfeit Martin, and keyboard and backing vocals James Evans also known as “InTheFletch” complete the band whose hometown is in Basildon, UK.
Tonight, July 8, the band will be in Huntington on Long Island for another concert.
