Pink Floyd Experience Aims To Re-Create Band's Concert Vibe

You probably think of Reynolds Hall at the new Smith Center for the Performing Arts as a venue for symphony concerts, Broadway shows and other forms of, shall we say, more highbrow performing art.

But just wait until Friday, when the hall will be rocking with the sounds of Pink Floyd via “PFX: The Pink Floyd Experience” underneath a floating pink pig.

The concert begins at 8 p.m. Friday and will include the iconic progressive rock band’s hits, several rarities and deep tracks, a segment paying tribute to founding Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett, and a performance of the entire “Wish You Were Here” album.

Tom Quinn, the Pink Floyd Experience’s bandleader and lead guitarist, said during a phone interview last week that the mission will be to faithfully re-create a Pink Floyd concert, circa the ’70s and ’80s, complete with visual effects, a quadraphonic sound system and, of course, that famous pig.

For some audience members, the show will serve as a reminder of great concerts long past. For others, it will mark the first time they’re seeing Pink Floyd’s music performed live.

Quinn said he “fell in love” with Pink Floyd’s music when the band’s seminal “The Dark Side of the Moon” album was released in 1973. He was a high school senior then, and already was playing in a band.

“I remember unwrapping my copy of the first pressing of ‘Dark Side of the Moon.’ I was at my drummer’s house, and he had a beer can wall in his bedroom. And we turned it up so loud the beer wall came crashing down,” Quinn said.

“That’s my first image of Pink Floyd,” he said, and then, “of course, I went back to discover the back catalog.”

But as Quinn pursued a career in music, he found himself not playing Pink Floyd as much as he would have liked.

“If you’re going to make a living playing in clubs and bars, you’ve got to get people to dance and sell drinks,” he said. “Pink Floyd is a lot of things to a lot of people, but it’s not great dance music, overall.”

However, since the Pink Floyd Experience’s founding in the mid-’90s, Quinn and his bandmates have been able to focus on playing Pink Floyd’s music in the way it should be played: in large venues and accompanied by computerized lighting effects, visuals on massive video walls, high-quality surround sound and, naturally, that pig hovering overhead.

In fact, Quinn said, “our Pig-Cam is new to the show. We have a camera under the pig shooting down into the audience.”

Quinn admitted that he is surprised at times by how smoothly the music of Pink Floyd spans demographics and generations. Why is that?

“It’s the way the music speaks as a whole, lyrically, thematically, musically,” he said. “It holds up.”

The Machine keeps British supergroup Pink Floyd's legacy alive with international stage show

Pink Floyd became one of the most popular bands in the world not only because of its music, but because of its theatrical live shows — a buffet for all the senses.

For more than two decades, The Machine has been helping keep Floyd’s legacy alive by touring around the world itself covering the British band’s extensive catalog of music with its own unique performances.

On Saturday, March 31, The Machine will bring its tour to The Rochester Opera House for a show starting at 8 p.m.

So, what has kept a cover band going for so long?

“A combination of the music is great and we do it well,” said guitarist Joe Pascarell, one of the band’s founding members. “It’s honest music and it’s not based on a fad or a fashion or the media hype.”

That music has resonated to fans for generation after generation and continues to grow in popularity today. And, just like a live Pink Floyd show, The Machine’s performances are much more than just music.

Pascarell said the stage will be covered in what he described as “intelligent lights” and there is a video screen that plays different Pink Floyd and independently produced videos during the who. The number of lights varies depending upon the size of the venue, but the visual component is a big part of every show.

“I think that’s something people think of when they think of Pink Floyd,” Pascarell said.

The music has also been praised by the likes of Rolling Stone and Spin magazines for its likeness to the original.

Pascarell got his first taste of Floyd when he was a teenager.

His older brother brought him to a show while the band was touring in support of its classic album “The Dark Side of the Moon,” and he was hooked. He traded the Beatles for Pink Floyd on his record player and started to learn how to play the guitar.

The members of The Machine include founding members Pascarell (guitar, vocals) and Tahrah Cohen (drums), and long time stagemates Ryan Ball (bass, vocals) and Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals).

Anthony Ejarque, the producing director at the Rochester Opera House, said the box office has been busy and he expects a big crowd.

“It’s going to be extraordinary,” Ejarque said. “It’s a big show for us.”

Tickets are $25-$32; log onto rochesteroperahouse.com or call 335-1992 for details.

The Brick learns to fly with trouble-free second concert

With no lines outside, no waiting at the bar or restrooms and sightlines good enough to see every flying pig on the video screen, Pink Floyd fans who turned out to see the tribute band Brit Floyd at the Brick on Wednesday were wondering what all those Jane’s Addiction fans were whining about a week earlier.

Plenty of room at the Brick last night.

Plenty of room at the Brick last night.

The second show at Minneapolis’ hotly hyped and hotheadedly received new rock club went off without a hitch. Of course, the fact that there were more than a thousand less people than at the nearly disastrous Jane’s concert might’ve helped.

Those 600 or so Floyd flockists had plenty of room to roam, even with the entire balcony cordoned off for folks from TPT (Twin Cities Public Television). TPT heavily promoted the Brick gig when it aired Brit Floyd’s concert special during the recent pledge drive. And speaking of back-scratching, the Brick’s cozy basement booths made a good place to kick back when the band took a 20-minute intermission. Yep, it was one of those shows: almost three hours of music total. It was also the kind of audio-geeky concert that at least proved the Brick’s sound system passes with flying colors (though I couldn’t test it from the balcony).

As for the band itself, there are two ways of looking at Brit Floyd: a tribute band is a tribute band, and there’s no way around the cornball factor; on the other hand, this group only has one less original member than the pseudo-Floyd tour returning to Xcel Energy Center on June 3. In terms of musicianship, Brit Floyd is more than half as good as Roger Waters’ band, which charges three times as much for tickets.

Guitarist Bobby Harrison was spot-on with his early solos in “Mother” and the lengthy opener “Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts I-28, or however many it is).” Bassist Ian Cattell and guitarist/bandleader Damian Darlington capably alternated on vocals, with Darlington fairing especially well singing Richard Wright’s parts in “Us Them” and Cattell making for a passable Waters in the must-haves “Money” and “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2).” The three female backup singers also made themselves known, with Emily Jollands nicely handling the unenviable gig of raising “The Great Gig in the Sky.” 

At least on one front, Wednesday’s show might have even been more rewarding for the Floyd diehards than Waters’ “The Wall” tour, since it covered more of the discography and included such rarely played fan-favorites as “Echoes,” “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” and “Have a Cigar.” Not to mention, the Brits played a few tunes from Floyd’s post-Waters era (“Learning to Fly,” “High Hopes” and “Keep Talking,” the latter two of which aren’t worth mentioning). But I don’t want to talk up Brit Floyd too much, and risk having a sold-out crowd the next time it plays the Brick.
