Formed in the summer of 2013, Sir Duke quickly became an instant hit as New York's ultimate Stevie Wonder tribute band. Fronted by the electrifying and world-famous vocalist, Tom Bowes (formerly of Tower of Power and Blood, Sweat & Tears), Sir Duke lifts the level of the tribute band genre to something riveting and absolutely unforgettable. Like his bandmates, Bowes grew up listening to and learning from Stevie's music, "until it wore off the vinyl," and you will hear his love of it in every lyric and vocal nuance.
Steve Briody, a Grammy-nominated guitarist and Sir Duke's musical director, handpicked these nine stellar musicians, featuring a tight rhythm section that has played together for over fifteen years! The result was an explosive combination of vocals and rhythm that honors and celebrates the musicality and songwriting genius of the inspirational Stevie Wonder. The camaraderie between the members on stage is palpable, and only adds to their already rocking performances.
Sir Duke invites you to come experience your favorite Stevie Wonder hits live in a captivating show you will not soon forget. This group of talented musicians always looks forward to sharing their love of this music with each other on stage and with their faithful audiences at every performance.
