Tune in and turn on to The Pink Floyd Experience
Pink Floyd is rarely discussed without using words like "psychedelic," "conceptual" and "provocative." Their shows are theatrical. Without question, the original Pink Floyd remains one of the most influential rock bands of all time.
Bringing such a story to the stage is no easy feat. Annerin Productions, also producers of the national tribute band tours of Rain - A Tribute to the Beatles and Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience, searched the continent for committed and talented musicians who could really do Pink Floyd justice. Two key factors were at the core of their plan:
* Keep it intimate. Put the legendary combination of music, sound and lights in a theatre atmosphere.
* Ensure the sensual attack of Floyd. Give it top priority along with the music.
They found the band, the lights and the sound to create the show for the ultimate Floyd fan, and it's called...The Pink Floyd Experience.
Band leader Tom Quinn is lead guitarist and relentless crusader for all things Pink Floyd. In 1973, "The Dark Side of the Moon" was released. That same year Quinn bought his first guitar, and started his first band. From day one, his chief mentor was David Gilmour. Quinn also cites Joe Walsh and Leslie West as big influences on his playing. He dates the musical roots of PFX back to 1994, when Pink Floyd's Division Bell tour stopped in San Diego. The band hit the stage in April 1995, and went on to garner many San Diego Music Awards from 1999 to 2003.
Other band members include Gus Beaudoin, John Cox, Jesse Molloy, Bob Sale and Zachary Throne.
