The Floyd Band rocks The Contie

Band at The ContieWhat a brilliant night!

Around 150 people came down to The New Continental, many people’s favourite venue in Preston, to see us last night – and what a brilliant time was had.

The two albums that we have played in full before – Wish You Were Here and Dark Side of The Moon – were supplements with 4 songs from The Wall – 2 of them (Hey You and In The Flesh) appearing alongside Another Brick in The Wall and Comfortably Numb – for the first time.

It was also the first time on stage for Neil Carr – playing amazing saxophone on most of the set and giving a whole new texture to Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Money and especially Us and Them. NC01Neil also added his vocal talents and took the band’s footwear in a completely new direction too.

There was a brilliant response from the crowd to the great new look light and projection show – and thanks go to James Gelson who has worked so hard to get this looking so professional.

R&D01So – a couple of days of rest and recuperation before we meet again to see what we are going to do next in terms of new material.

MH01There are gigs booked in Lancaster, Longton and Chorley over the next few months – and we will publish details and booking information as soon as we can.

Thanks so much to everyone who came along to The Contie and made it a night we will never forget.

See you on the next one
