Pigs on the Wing (A Tribute to Pink Floyd)
April 13 • 8:00 pm• $15 - $18
On Friday the 13th of April, the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly hosts a Celebration the Dark Side as Portland, Oregon based Pink Floyd tribute band Pigs on the Wing offers their 2018 production “Finding the Dark Side of the Moon”.
“Finding the Dark Side of the Moon” is a two-set retrospective live experience culminating in a full performance of Pink Floyd’s 1973 concept album The Dark Side of the Moon. 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 who balance a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and importance of Pink Floyd 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. After immersing themselves in the polished rock theatrics of The Wall during the 2017 season, Pigs on the Wing felt it was time to try something different. The band’s 2018 production — Finding the Dark Side of the Moon — represents a full circle in some ways. As remaining original members Matt Jones and Jason Baker relate, Pigs on the Wing’s very first show was a performance of The Dark Side of the Moon. In the ensuing eleven years, the band’s regional fan base has grown exponentially alongside the musicianship of the band itself, as well as the scale of the show as an immersive audio-visual experience. This time around expect two full sets of Pink Floyd – the first a loosely chronological retrospective of Pink Floyd’s work before becoming a household name; and the second a full performance of what many would agree is amongst rock music’s finest works from cover to cover, The Dark Side of the Moon. Pigs on the Wing is: Eric Welder (bass, vocals); Pete Galluzzo (sax); David Lindenbaum (guitar, vocals); Matt Jones (keys, vocals); Bryan Fairfield (drums); Keeley St. Clair (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Jason Baker (guitar, vocals).
