RG Jones Project Engineer Jack Bowcher has just completed his second tour for the official Queen Tribute Show (produced by Roger Taylor). This is a spectacular touring concert show designed to take the live experience of this legendary rock band and bring it to generations of fans – old and new. The masterminds behind this extraordinary show is Queen’s original band members and songwriters – Roger Taylor and Brian May.
“This is far more than just a tribute band,” explains monitor engineer Jack, “because Queen are behind this, including set design and as overall producers - Brian and Roger have personally chosen each member of the band. Clearly they know exactly what they want to achieve with audio as this has always been of paramount importance to anything with their name on it.”
“It’s our own official tribute band,” says Roger Taylor. “These guys are incredibly gifted musicians in their own right and certainly aren’t just dressing up in costumes and pretending to be Queen. They actually play the music better than we ever did. Or, maybe better isn’t the right word! But they play a more perfect version with more polished sound…”
“The band is a joy to work with,” says Jack. “I’ve really enjoyed both tours across the UK and Europe and more recently, over to Australia. Looking forward to the next one!”
“Jack has worked alongside me now for four years,” says TM Paul Bond, “on numerous projects including Marina & The Diamonds, Goldfrapp and now the Queen Extravaganza. He has a wise head on young shoulders.”
Jack from RG Jones has formed an excellent professional relationship with the band and the production of this, as he always does.
