Remember the brilliance of the outstanding David Bowie with this very respectful and long standing tribute

Jean Genie were formed in 1993 in Birmingham by John Mainwaring the lead vocalist of the band. They play all over the world and pay tribute to Bowie’s music of the 70s 80s and 90s.

John has had many recording contracts with major companies under different guises and has toured with David Bowie’s original band of the early 70s – The Spiders From Mars – being their vocalist. John has been produced by Bowie’s producer Tony Visconti in the early 80′s and worked with Jarvis Cocker of Pulp and Joe Elliott of Def Leppard.

He has also had a number one hit in The Lebanon in 1990. Jean Genie play all of Bowies hits in an amazing show of complete detail. John Mainwearing is without doubt the only other David Bowie on the planet, his voice is exactly the same but you don’t need to close your eyes because he looks just like him too.

Jean Genie was created by John Mainwaring and John Ford in 1993. An original recording artist in his own right, John Mainwaring has been signed by numerous record companies throughout his career – twice with Warner Bros. In the 1980s David Bowie’s world famous producer Tony Visconti produced some of John’s songs when he was signed to WEA.
