Australia’s largest-scale Pink Floyd concept show is coming to Cessnock Performing Arts Centre on Friday, August 24.
Echoes of Pink Floyd is a two-hour full scale concert production that features a selection of the band’s greatest hits from their momentous career, including tracks from the iconic 1979 album The Wall.
Several years in development and having accumulated over 5000 hours of rehearsal time to perfect these songs, Echoes of Pink Floyd comprises a six-piece band – featuring Daniel Hunter on lead guitar, Jason Miller on drums, Mark Dole on bass, Paul Bindig on keyboards and synthesisers, Mark MacNab on rhythm and acoustic guitar and Matt Goodluck on lead vocals.
Their aim is to authentically replicate the brilliant sights and sounds of one of the greatest progressive rock bands of all time.
“It’s not just the music, it’s the circle, the show and the whole experience,” Bindig says.
“We are the only act that is touring trussing that supports this incredible four-metre circle that can project 6000 lumens video. It really is a show not to be missed.”
Hunter says each member of the band loves and respects what the original Pink Floyd gave to the world with their music.
“We want to bring this to life for the audience who may not have had a chance to experience a Pink Floyd concert,” he said.
“We aim to ensure every aspect of the original Pink Floyd music is captured authentically.”
Dole says the show, at its core, looks at 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”.”
The show will start at 8pm; and tickets are on sale at the CPAC box office, by phone on 4993 4266 or online at cessnockperformingartscentre.com.au.
