THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND | An Introduction by John Katsilometes

The music varies, as does the attire. Sometimes he’s in John Varvatos rock attire or Versace couture with enough bling to sink a buoy. Other times, he’s in a full tux, evoking an image of the modern-day Rat Packer he has long hoped to inhabit.

This is Chris Phillips, a classic Las Vegas soul trapped in a dance party production show. Sometimes we refer to him as Zowie Bowie, other times just Chris, but regardless he always brings the party. Phillips-as-Zowie Bowie has filled Red Rock Casino for over a decade and has drawn hundreds to Third Street Stage on Fremont Street for his more recent Thursday and Saturday night performances.

FAB ZB FACT: Chris’ round house kicks were inspired by David Lee Roth of Van Halen fame.

Phillips, in his Z.B. mode, appears with the requisitely beautiful and powerfully voiced Nieve Malandra and a rhythm section that moves easily through such dance staples as “Uptown Funk,” “Get Down Tonight” and “Let’s Get it Started.” That format has made Phillips a consistently popular showman among locals from the moment he opened at Red Rock Casino in 2006.


Zowie Bowie features the musical talents of backing vocalist Nieve Malandra, who joined the group in 2011, adding high voltage sexy vocals that makes the act the Las Vegas mainstay that it is.
