Description

The San Diego-based Pink Floyd Experience features band leader Tom Quinn, lead guitar; Howard Pattow, multi-instrumentalist/vocals; Gus Beaudoin, bass; Jesse Molloy, saxophone; John Cox, keyboards; and John Staten on drums.

The group traces its roots to 1994, and to Pink Floyd’s Division Bell tour stop in San Diego. The band hit the stage in 1995, and went on to win many San Diego Music Awards from 1995 to 2003.

The tribute band, which brings the stadium-size shows of Pink Floyd in the 1970s and 1980s to smaller, more intimate venues, is well known for its massive light show, stunning videos, and impressive surround sound.

The Pink Floyd Experience even includes a giant inflatable pink pig flying overhead during the show. Pink Floyd used the flying pig in its shows, and it became the iconic symbol for the band. It was taken from the band’s 1977 album Animals.

All the Pink Floyd hits will be included in the show, including “Money,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Have a Cigar,” “Time,” “Comfortably Numb,” and “Another Brick in the Wall,” and many more.

One of the most influential rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd formed in 1965 London. The band gained international recognition for its psychedelic music in the late ‘60s and for its progressive rock from the ‘70s onward. The group sold more than 200 million albums since 1967, including such concept albums as Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall.

Dark Side of the Moon broke all chart records when it stayed on the Billboard Top 200 album charts for 741 weeks, from 1973 to 1988. Pink Floyd, which received four Grammy nominations in the 1970s through 1990s, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
