Floydian Slips Videos from the Weekend

In addition to blogging and having an actual job, I play guitar and sing in various bands. One of the more fun and long-standing is The Floydian Slips, an 8-piece Pink Floyd tribute band.

We have been playing shows for the past 12 years - usually one or two a year, as they are big production deals. Also, most of the other folks in the band are full time musicians and getting a date that works for all of us, plus the crew and venue, is sometimes a challenge.

But it all came together last Saturday and we did a pretty decent show at the McDonald Theater in Eugene. The first set was a little challenging, as the computer with the samples for Money, Time, the front of Wish You Were Here, the end of Fearless etc went down and we had to wing it. Musically, that was OK but we had to have these quick conversations among ourselves onstage, which is never a good thing in front of 1,000 people.

Second set crushed, though, with the computer working again and all of us determined to overcome the challenges and put on a kick ass show. Below is the set list and videos of some of the stronger songs from the night.

Our next show is in February in Eugene Oregon with the Eugene Ballet at the Hult Center. We are playing the Dark Side of the Moon live and they are dancing. That is all I know for now.

Dumb question, which one is you? Sounds great though.

Great stuff, as always.

Nice! My dog thought I was strange cheering in front of my laptop, but she can't tell anyone, so it's cool.

Hey Dan - sorry it took so long to respond. I am the guy in the center, singing and playing guitar.

Kevin, I bet your dog would like our version of Dogs!

Chris - thanks, man! Your Lita Ford interview was excellent, but short (not your fault I know)
