Pink Floyd Tribute Band Pigs on the Wing Plays Walla Walla Friday
The amazing Pink Floyd tribute band, Pigs on the Wing, will play "Animals" in its entirety and more this Friday night, October 11th, in Walla Walla at the Gesa Power House Theatre.
"Animals" is a 2-set Pink Floyd concert experience from the Portland, Oregon based Pink Floyd tribute band Pigs on the Wing featuring a full performance of Pink Floyd's 1977 album Animals - and full second set highlighting the very best of Pink Floyd's Roger Waters-era catalog. There will be sheep and dogs and of course, pigs, at least three different ones.
Tracing its roots to a one-off performance in Portland in 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily developed a reputation for delivering a high quality, high energy take on Pink Floyd's music steeped in the NW's own rich musical heritage.
All of the members of the band are seasoned veterans of the original rock scene and balance a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and importance of Pink Floyd's music in many fans' lives. The result is a sound and experience both refreshing in delivery and yet true to the original – something the band believes sets it apart from other Pink Floyd tributes.
Animals 2019: Pigs on the Wing has long considered Animals to be their defining experience of Floyd (not to mention the band's namesake) - and perhaps the album best suited to their own high energy take on Floyd's catalog.
Fans can expect Pigs on the Wing to deliver a precise, hard-hitting, true-to-the-music performance of the classic 1977 Animals album melded seamlessly with Pigs on the Wing's trademark willingness to explore the improvisational side of Pink Floyd's music - and to let their own musical strengths guide the journey.
The Walla Walla show will additionally showcase a second full set of carefully curated Pink Floyd music from throughout the Roger Waters era – including the hits and some deep cuts as well. In the spirit of Pink Floyd, Pigs on the Wing's Animals 2019 tour features an immersive visual dimension including a spectacular redesigned light show and live projection mapping for a concert experience unlike any other.
Pigs on the Wing is (L to R): Eric Welder (bass, vocals); Pete Galluzzo (sax); Bryan Fairfield (drums); Holly Brooks (vocals); David Lindenbaum (guitar, vocals); Matt Jones (keys, vocals); Jason Baker (guitar, vocals).
