Carlisle-based four-piece band Diamond Dogs want a female singer who’s willing to get into the Ziggy Stardust spirit to join them for their upcoming gigs.

The band play gigs across the city and throughout Cumbria and they would ideally like to have someone in place for their gig at the Hethersgill Beer Festival on August 22. They also have events planned in October.

They hope that a new member will give the band a lift and improve their range of vocals.

The band is currently made up of city lads Gordon Henshaw, on drums, Vince Weston, on bass guitar, and father and son Dave and Jamie Bloxham, on guitar and keyboard respectively, who all share vocals.

“We want a female singer to do some backing vocals and some lead who’s willing to dress in the Bowie style,” said Gordon.

“There’s a lot of backing vocals in Bowie songs and we are looking for someone with a strong voice who can become Bowie.

“If we find the right person it will give us the extra push.

“Being a Bowie fan would be a bonus but we would like someone who loves music and is committed. The band has been going about a year and we hope it will give us a lift.”

The group perform most of Bowie’s classic hits and rare gems including Ziggy Stardust,Space Oddity and Life on Mars.

“We like to think we reproduce his work well as we are all experienced musicians. Sometimes a few girls have said they will come down but maybe they are a bit apprehensive, however, we really are willing to try people out.”

If anyone is interested in joining the group call 07754445964.
