What People Say
‘I recently saw Martin Gough’s Sound of Bowie in Leeds. His
voice carries so much power and he is by far the best David
Bowie Tribute I have ever seen/heard and I would highly
recommend booking him. He is also a lovely warm person to
Miriam Fahey – Dublin.
We saw Martin perform in Bolton and were blown away. We
have seen many of the full band Bowie Tributes over the years
in big theatres. We chatted with Martin after the show and
told him that none of the singers in these bands could touch
him vocally. He is as close as it gets to David’s voice’.
Sarah Wellington – Bolton
‘We heard there was a David Bowie Tribute playing our local
area in Nottingham and went along out of curiosity and not
expecting much. Oh my goodness … he sounded exactly like
him and played a large variety of songs including some the
big tribute bands don’t do like – Wild Is The Wind and Sound
And Vision – truly amazing’.
John Winters – Nottingham
‘Having been an obsessive Bowie fan since I was 14, I was expecting to be disappointed by this show but was completely blown away. Martin totally got all of Bowie’s vocal inflections and the music was spot on. He reigned freely over the great man’s entire, very varied repertoire with utter confidence, verve and virtuosity. My mind has been constantly filling with one Bowie song after another ever since and it’s now a week later’.
Gaz Robertson – Bowie Freak
‘Have just had a wonderful night enjoying the Sound Of Bowie with Martin Gough performing two sets of classic Bowie songs to a Bowie mas audience at White Cloth Gallery in Leeds. He was absolutely brilliant and we could have been listening to the great man himself’.
Zophia Hollas – Leeds
‘Fantastic reproduction of the Bowie classics – he really is a-lad-insane … every beat, every trend – Martin showered the audience in Bowie classics with the musical skill of a master crafstman’.
Les Rowley – Editor of ‘The Story Of Yorkshire Pop Music’ and writer/producer of ‘Paint It White’
‘Martin Gough has got to be one of the very best Bowie
Tributes out there. We were amazed at just how much he
sounds like DB and we’ve booked a lot of gigs over the past
ten years but never heard anyone quite as good. Definitely
be booking Martin again’.
Nick Howcroft – Henighans Music Venue – Bolton
‘Friday night we had the pleasure of Martin Gough as David
Bowie. Wow did he put on a show! Absolutely fantastic and if you turned away, you would swear it was Bowie himself. Well
done Martin – you worked hard. Thank you and my customers
and myself can’t wait for your return visit!’
Carl Mullaney – The 1852 – Leicester
‘Martin turned up well on time and did a great job as
Bowie. His vocals are excellent and a really nice guy to boot.
He has great stage presence and the crowd liked his
interpretation of the Bowie songs’.
Gary – Owner of The Diamond – Sutton-In-Ashfield –
‘Good communications with Martin from the onset. We met
the day before to go through his requirements for sound and
lighting. On the day he arrived in good time to get set up. He
was still wandering around the venue when the customers
started to arrive and they were oblivious to the fact that he
was the artist! Good music for the build up to the show and in
the interval. His show was amazing – people were up dancing
straight away and even more joined them in the second half.
There were a lot of happy faces leaving that night. We have
had such a positive feedback that we have booked Martin
again for next year’.
The Milton Rooms – Malton – North Yorkshire
‘I booked Martin for my President’s Evening at Nuneaton Golf
Club and he was a great success. With his light show and
backdrop he created an atmosphere and got people on their
feet as soon as he started to sing. His vocal similarity to the
late great man is remarkable. He does a terrific range of
Bowie songs and I would highly recommend him’.
Roy Hawkins – President – Nuneaton Golf Club
‘Martin Gough’s Sound Of Bowie night was brilliant at the Gallery and the night was a great success. Everybody was surprised at how much he sounds just like the man himself and the slide show, which was timed perfectly to the songs being sung, added a great visual aspect to the show. Good night had by all!’
Michelle – Operations Manager – White Cloth Gallery
‘We cannot recommend Martin enough – not only the BEST Bowie out there but a genuinely all round nice guy. There are so many tributes doing the circuit these days but the care and attention we have received from Martin both professionally and privately is a rarity these days. We look forward to continuing our dealings with Martin and can also call you a friend. Thank you, Kindest Regards.’
Andrea & Matt. Venue Owner – (Shirley – West Midlands).
‘We have worked with Martin on a number of occasions and
we cannot recommend him enough! We always find him
professional, kind and above all else an exceptional tribute to
the legend that is David Bowie!’
Holly – Tribute Acts Management – Entertainment Agency
‘Martin Gough as David Bowie has performed many times at
several different venues for Darin Day Music Ltd. The reviews
from the venues have always been very positive and resulted
in re-bookings. Martin always confirms a few days before that
everything is good for the booking and informs the agency
on arrival. Always arrives early to get to know the set up, the
staff and customers to help build the atmosphere. The
standard of the show is always professional and a high
standard. Vocals and mannerisms are what make the tribute
show one of the best in the UK. Darin Day Music Ltd are
proud to have Martin as one of the stable-mates and will
continue to offer as much work as possible’.
Michael Day – MD – Managing Director Darin Day Music
‘We have worked with Martin Gough as David Bowie for a
number of years. He always gets great feedback and is
reliable and trustworthy’.
