Echoes of Pink Floyd returns to Redland Performing Arts Centre at 8pm on June 24 as part of a new 21-show concert tour Signs Of Life running until November 18.
The show is a painstakingly crafted homage to English powerhouse rockers Pink Floyd and celebrates 35 years since the band toured Australia on its A Momentary Lapse of Reason album.
Vocalist Matt Goodluck said he was looking forward to returning to the Redlands.
He said he was a big fan of Pink Floyd, describing the music as having “depth and complexity”.
“When you are playing in a tribute band, you have to be a fan. To put this much time, energy and effort in, you’ve got to love the music,” Mr Goodluck said.
“It’s not bombastic. This is not throw away pop. There is depth to it and it gives the audience something to think about.
“It is a combination of music and art. This shows in the album covers, so the imagery is important and a big part of the show.”
In fact, Mr Goodluck describes the images as “next level”.
“It is important not to use existing artwork,” he said.
“We have developed custom videos that are stunning. We get a lot of comments and it looks amazing.
“It gives the audience something to look at during a long instrumental for example, which is common in Pink Floyd music.”
Mr Goodluck said that while Echoes of Pink Floyd was not classed as a tribute band, its mission was to replicate the music as closely as possible.
“We re-live our experience through the music,” he said.
“You never know who is listening or what people remember.
“The music takes them on a journey to a time or place.”
Mr Goodluck said he enjoyed playing to anyone but loved bringing a show to the people in a regional area.
“The best part is meeting the audience afterwards,” he said.
The group also features Daniel Hunter and Mark MacNab on guitars, Jason Miller on drums, Paul Bindig on keyboards and Tony Coppola on bass.
