Flam­boy­ant fun as Duffo pays trib­ute to Bowie

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

NO­BODY has ever used the words “shy” or “quiet” to de­scribe Jeff Duff.

A tal­ent that first came to be no­ticed in the 1970s, he con­tin­u­ally sur­prised and even shocked au­di­ences dur­ing a decade that was known for de­liv­er­ing the un­ex­pected and off­beat.

Jeff is ar­guably the most flam­boy­ant, creative and con­tro­ver­sial en­ter­tainer Aus­tralia has pro­duced. His mu­si­cal gifts and fan­tas­ti­cal an­drog­y­nous per­for­mances par­al­lel the artistry of David Bowie.

While Duffo’s ca­reer kicked off in the 1970s, he con­tin­ues to grow as an artist, cre­at­ing new mu­sic and per­form­ing sell-out con­certs to this day.

Duffo has a love for rock‘n’roll and is an open book. In his re­cently pub­lished au­to­bi­og­ra­phy he shares anec­dotes about his child­hood de­sire to wear a dress, per­form­ing be­fore vi­o­lent Lon­don punk crowds, be­ing banned and ar­rested and even his jour­ney into the depths of de­spair.

What­ever he does, it’s done with his sig­na­ture flair and style and sense of fun and fash­ion.

North­ern New South Wales is about to be “duffed”, with Jeff bring­ing his ac­claimed Bowie Unzipped show to re­gional towns. Catch him tonight at C.ex Coffs.
