Bundaberg Pink Floyd fans will be treated to a stellar performance when tribute show A Journey Through Time comes to the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre next month.
Australia’s largest scale Pink Floyd concept act, Echoes of Pink Floyd, will travel to the region on Saturday, June 5 as part of their all-new touring show for 2021.
The performance is set to take audiences on a musical and visual journey from Pink Floyd’s earliest days as darlings of 1960s London’s psychedelic underground.
It will progress all the way to their 1990s powerhouse performances as the undisputed masters of stadium rock.
In addition, the show will provide insight into the amazing evolution of the seminal English prog rockers throughout their history.
Formed in 2009 and with thousands of hours of rehearsal and live performance behind them, Echoes of Pink Floyd comprises a six-piece band featuring Daniel Hunter on lead guitar; Jason Miller on drums; Tony Coppola on bass; Paul Bindig on keyboards and synthesisers; Mark MacNab on rhythm and acoustic guitar and Matt Goodluck on lead vocals.
According to guitarist Dan Hunter, the band’s aim is to authentically replicate the sights and sounds of one of the world’s greatest progressive rock bands of all time.
“Each member of the band loves and respects what the original Pink Floyd gave to the world with their music,” he said.
“We want to bring this to life for the audience who may not have had a chance to experience a Pink Floyd concert, or wish to relive memories from their youth.
“We aim to ensure every aspect of the original Pink Floyd music is captured authentically.”
Audiences will be treated to an extensive exploration of the band’s impressive catalogue as the gang from Echoes of Pink Floyd plays all of Pink Floyd’s biggest smash hits, as well as some lovingly hand-picked deep album cuts designed to please the most committed of hard-core fans.
Drummer Jason Miller said the group was delving into the legacy of the music.
“Our vision and desire is to keep this music alive so it will be remembered for generations to come,” he said.
“We want to stand up as the next representatives of these guys in the 21st century, by being the truly authentic Pink Floyd concept show for Australia.”
Echoes of Pink Floyd- A Journey Through Time will be performed at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on Saturday, 5 June at 8pm.
