A Night of Amy Winehouse at WaterBear, Brighton  

Posted on January 10, 2024

On the 31st January, at WaterBear’s very own Brighton venue, WaterBear is hosting ‘A Night of Amy Winehouse’. This night, a celebration of the beloved London-based jazz singer, will feature Amy’s original backing band, who toured globally with her, performing her greatest hits. In the same vein as all WaterBear events, there will also be some fantastic opportunities for student participation, with our WaterBear vocalists having the chance to sing with the band! 

Who are The Amy Winehouse Band? 

The Amy Winehouse Band is led by Dale Davis, Amy’s Music Director and Bass Player, whom Amy described as “my favourite person to go anywhere with”. It is the only completely authentic reimagining of Amy Winehouse’s music. Featuring her original band members and fronted by the talented Bronte Shande, the show is a unique retrospective featuring renditions of Amy’s songs, as well as on-screen visuals. The band themselves feature a host of talented veteran musicians, all of whom have vast experience within live performances. Aside from playing with Amy at Glastonbury, the members of the band have performed with artists such as Tina Turner, Sinead O’Connor, Van Morrison, Tom Jones, and Primal Scream. The immense talent at display in the band means this opportunity is something which should not be missed, especially given that The Amy Winehouse Band are likely the most authentic Amy Winehouse tribute you will see.  

Dale Davis, leader of the band, had this to say: 

“Amy was amazing. She had such a big heart and gave everything to her music and the people she loved. Hers is such an important musical legacy and with [The Amy Winehouse Band] we aim to keep it alive throughout the world”. 

WaterBear Student Opportunities 

WaterBear students will also have the opportunity to have a live Q&A session with the band ahead of their gig. This will be immensely useful for any student interested in music performance, given the large and varied music career of each member of the band. 

WaterBear students, specifically our budding vocalists, will also have the opportunity to sing live with the band. This is going to be a particularly incredible opportunity for our students, and it will allow our vocalists to experience performing with a professional backing band.
