Glass Spiders is a Montana-based tribute to the music of David Bowie. The band performs an expansive catalog of songs representing the breadth of Bowie’s 50-year career. “How does one describe a Glass Spiders’ show,” a reviewer recently wrote, “It’s not easy to evoke the sheer radness of it all.” (Missoula Independent; March, 2015)

Formed in 2014 by a group of Missoula, Mont.-based musicians, Glass Spiders was conceived for a one-off show at a popular Montana venue. Due to a scheduling conflict, the venue was forced to cancel the show, leaving the band with a full set of tunes and nowhere to play them. With dwindling options and a nagging itch to channel the energy of Bowie’s music, the band moved the show to the local VFW, where on a Sunday evening, Glass Spiders made their debut. When more than 200 people filled the bar past capacity, the band agreed that wouldn’t be its one and only performance.

Since then, Glass Spiders has expanded its catalog and honed its live performance. In 2015, the group played a 2 1/2–hour show to a sold-out (400+) Halloween crowd. In 2016, the band performed three full sets, including all of the 1976 album Station to Station, for a crowd of more than 550 people at Missoula’s revitalized Top Hat Lounge.

Glass Spiders is: Nick Ryan (Bowie vocals); Alison Gadbow, Rachel Patrie and Jenny Lynn Fawcett (backing vocals); Travis Yost and John Sporman (guitars); Jason McMackin (bass guitar); Ben Weiss (synthesizers, percussion); Tom Helgerson (piano); Nate Hoyme (saxophone); and Jamie Rogers (drums).

The members of Glass Spiders look forward to sharing with a growing audience the electricity of David Bowie’s music performed in a live setting.
