As videos of The Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival’s all-star PoWoW! jam session continue to surface, Rolling Stone has shared another highlight from the festival’s inaugural weekend. In a tribute to David Bowie, Miguel, John Oates (of Hall & Oates), Win Butler, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band performed a funky rendition of “Fame.” The Preservation Hall Jazz Band had previously joined Arcade Fire in January for the band’s Bowie memorial parade that was held in New Orleans.
“David f*ckin’ Bowie is alive,” Butler exclaimed after their performance. “There’s no one who lives and touches that many people who doesn’t live forever. He’s going to live forever in all of us. He was a perfect human, a perfect man. We were lucky to be on earth at the same time.” Following “Fame,” the collective then took on “Rebel Rebel.”
