HalloQueen (Queen Tribute)
Formed in 2001 by a veteran group of Seattle rockers, Halloqueen has cultivated a rabid following throughout the Northwest that’s stone cold crazy for their versions of classics like “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Tie Your Mother Down,” “We Are the Champions,” and “Another One Bites the Dust.” With an enthusiastic assist from the audience, they even tackle the musical behemoth that is “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Halloqueen’s powerhouse vocals, sledgehammer guitars, rock-solid rhythm section, and triumphant stage presence would surely leave Her Majesty very, very amused.
The Dudley Manlove Quartet
Since its debut at punk mecca the OK Hotel in 1995, DMQ has melded a sincere reverence for
its hefty repertoire of AM radio hits with a musical dexterity and power that elevate the seemingly
lightweight material to unexpected heights. Above all, Dudley has helped bring fun back into a music
scene that was sadly deficient in that commodity.
Few bands could work a jam-packed club audience into a frenzy with unlikely offerings like Elvis
Presley’s “Suspicious Minds” or Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up,” and fewer still would
even attempt to jump from ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” to
Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” without sliding into parody, but that’s exactly what the Dudley
Manlove Quartet does, show after sold-out show, at premiere venues like The Crocodile, Triple
Door, Tractor Tavern, and Showbox at the Market. Guilty pleasures never felt so good.
These two Seattle legends share a bill for the first time to pay homage to rock and roll royalty—
Queen and the Thin White Duke. The Dudley Manlove Quartet brings the Bowie, deftly navigating
a diverse catalogue that includes “Suffragette City,” “Changes,” “Ashes to Ashes,” and “China Girl,”
followed by Halloqueen’s epic set of Queen favorites like “Killer Queen,” “Another One Bites the
Dust,” “Somebody to Love,” and “We Will Rock You.” To close the show the two bands combine
forces to accomplish what Queen and Bowie never did— perform their legendary 1981 collaboration
“Under Pressure” in front of a live audience. Don’t miss this celebration of sound and vision, fat-
bottomed girls, space oddities, and that crazy little thing called love.
If a Halloqueen/DMQ mash-up rehearsal can be this much fun, just imagine how much fun the show is going to be. This Saturday at the Crocodile, 8PM doors, DMQ's Bowie showie at 9:15, Halloqueen gets on its bike and rides at 11, members of both bands rock out together all evening--You won't want to miss a minute, so get there early and stay till the end.
