Just witnessed your
best live gig?.. send us a review!
NIA Birmingham 10 May 2012
this isn't a tribute band you would see in the local pub. This is
a full blown extravaganza, and an assault on the senses...
The show kicked off with a video introducing the very respectable
audience to the music of Pink Floyd, then all was quiet till the

show moved on through 'Echoes', 'Time', 'One Of These Days' and others
till it was time for 'Comfortably Numb', and one of the best guitar
solos ever committed to record. This blew the crowd away, and by
the time 'Run Like Hell' was finished people looked shell shocked that

I've seen several Pink Floyd tribute bands, and can say with hand on
heart that these chaps, and ladies, are the best of the lot by
far...Catch them and do yourself a favour..
