You have most definatley earn't your selves another fan.

What really surprised me was the fantastic fusion and harmony with which the band played when performing.

I was truly astonished by Stella Fairhead, with the performance of the night. She performed one of the most famous and demanding female accapella vocals ever, live on stage in note for note perfection. It was here that the band showed their quality and class and won me over completely.
The very talented and versatile Ben Appleby gave each song energy and a little boost while adding some of the crucially essential elements for certain songs. Rick Benbow gave each song its lustre and atmosphere with a magnificent and awe-inspiring keyboard presence.
Nick Radcliffe displayed his complexed and intricate skills by playing with passion and acute precision. Each song recieved its buoyancy and direction from Neil Fairclough who showed great control and timing when in delay. The lead vocalist Andy Gibson had the hardest job being the VOICE and he pulled it off. Dave Cottrell had the stage presence that THOR would have been pleased with, a mind blowing display of the thundering beats will knock your sox off.
Adele Harley and Carolyn Harley gave every song its much needed counter, with alluring backing vocals to give atmosphere with some shiveringly sexy vocals.

Of course, there were some touches "fills nuiances incidentals" ect that were musician libbed, which gave the performance sparkle, resonance and above all a natural charactor.

Unfortunately the lead vocals were a little dry. Some slight reverb & phasing would have given the lead vocals more sheen that would have helped them to blend in with the music much better, making the songs more dynamic.


Before the show...
The vibe was sceptic, which is only fair considering the sheer magnitude of the orignal artists. After the first few songs though, all scepticall thoughts were bannished in to insignificance, as the quality of the musicianship and song arrangement silenced any doubter. Even the most ardent (OLD SKOOL)Floyd fan's were won over with comparative ease.

At the interval...
The buzz was electric, every single person could not believe what they were hearing and could not wait to get back in to hear/see what was going to happen next.

The Wall...
When "The Wall" was played out and the band left the stage the crowd were ecstatic, on thier feet and screaming for more. After a minute or so the audience sat down and refused to leave.
The band came back on to perform two more songs. This was a massive crowd "pleasesircanihavesomemore" and showed the bands dedication, professinalism and clearly obvious love and passion for the music.


To all PINK FLOYD fans...
Ignore your doubts, this is the very next best thing, to the real thing. Percentages being a good tool for comparison. 99.5% of all the essential criteria were met, the missing .5% would have been...

Roger Waters
David Gilmour
Syd Barrett
Nick Mason
Richard Wright

Shine on...
