The Pink Floyd cover band played on Friday, June 24
Last week one of the country’s premier Pink Floyd cover band’s graced the Churchill Theatre’s stage.
So when I look to my right and see tears on the grown man next to me, I know that what I’m witnessing on stage is special.
Not that I needed any more confirmation, cover band Think Floyd do more than just play the same notes as the band they aspire to, they turn their show into a production inspired by of the biggest bands of the 20th century.
A fully crafted lights show flashes along with the four-piece band, as they introduce themselves to the Bromley crowd by playing early tracks from 1972’s Obscured By Clouds followed by the band’s introductory anthem, In The Flesh, from 1979’s The Wall.
And then for what the crowd have come to see and hear, as Think Floyd take on their inspiration’s record breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon.
Playing through the full album, with impressions from drummer Steven Farmer mimicking the iconic interview samples that during each song, Think Floyd capture the mood and sound of one of music’s first ever concept albums.
Like any production, supporting players grace the stage, with backup vocalist Rosie Osbourne and saxophone player Freddy De Lord drawing all eyes to their corner when called upon.
As the band perform with precision and passion, Miss Osbourne arguably stole the first half of the show with her rendition of The Great Gig in the Sky.
Heading into the second half of the show, each band member’s talent continued to shine on as they played the entirety of Wish You Were Here.
With expert harmonies sung while simultaneously playing their respective instruments, each member of Think Floyd fully deserves their place on stage as one of the premier Pink Floyd cover acts in the world.
As the flawless perfomance draws to a close, with a couple of extra songs for good measure, the crowd left the Churchill Theatre well and truly pleased with the range, talent and production of the night’s act.
Think Floyd’s performance was more than that of a cover’s band, it could be the closest thing fans have to seeing the band in the flesh.
