Pink Droyd took Floyd fans "Beyond the Wall" Saturday at Headliners
Print this page

The gods of Floyd showed some love when Headliners booked Pink Droyd for a night of smooth and surreal Pink Floyd songs for Louisville Floyd fans, sponsored in part by 107.7 The Eagle.  The Floyd faithful sat back and enjoyed the mellow, relaxing atmosphere with a cocktail in hand as Pink Droyd plugged in and rocked out.

Many people will agree that there are certain bands that should not be covered, under any circumstance. Pink Floyd is on that short list that also includes Rush and Led Zeppelin. Pink Droyd can not only pull off the Floyd cover, but they do it very well.  The wonderful thing about Pink Droyd is their attention to detail with both music and atmosphere.  The lighting engineers, Herm Productions, designed extremely detailed lighting techniques to compliment the music.  The light show hinged on perfection as colored beams coincided with the spot on music. 

The stage presence of 6 guys who, combined have over 30 years of Floyd experience.  Kevin Quandt (Lead Vocals, Guitars, Talk Box), in his unique way, presented a young David Gilmour with fantastic voice replication.  Not only did Quandt cover Gilmour with grace, he picked up Waters' parts with ease. Mike Lennon (Lead Guitar) supported the Floyd cause with amazing guitar rifts, so much that if you closed your eyes, you could see yourself at a Floyd show. Nick Talevski (Drums, Percussion, FX) took this concert to a fun level, keeping the beat and helping to design the many great effects for the show.

Craig "Craiger" Harnish (Bass, Vocals, Bass Synthesizer Pedals), who stayed in the background of the stage, replicated the unique sounds of Floyd with great precision.  Daniel Fisher (Synthesizers, Organ, Piano, Vocals, Third Guitar, Trombone) worked diligently to provide the distinctive studio sounds heard on every Floyd album.  His contribution with The Wall was particularly well done. Saxophonist Stevie Lunn added timely accents to the music.

The show gave Floyd fans the opportunity to re-live those fantastic glory days of Pink Floyd concerts…or maybe get that much needed Floyd fix before the Roger Waters show in June!
