Chris Phillips of Zowie Bowie

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.

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, and a highvoltage band that creates an entertaining and sexy sound that has become a Las Vegas mainstay.

Native of San Francisco, Nieve Malandra grew up in the cafes and restaurants nestled in the heart of the City by the Bay. It wasn’t long before becoming seasoned in the recording studios and live performances of Los Angeles. Nieve enjoys experimenting with her versatile voice and all its range of colors. She has mastered several styles and sings in a variety of languages and loves to push the limits of her range while exploring the emotional depth in her diverse repertoire.

Nieve is the lead female singer in iconic high intensity lounge act, Zowie Bowie, showcasing at Red Rock Casino and the fabulous Fremont Street Experience!
