THE Floyd Effect isn't just a bunch of enthusiasts who love the music of Pink Floyd, but a band of high quality musicians that relish playing the momentous tunes of one of the greatest rock groups to ever come out of our green and pleasant land.

Members of The Floyd Effect - who play Ulverston's Coronation Hall tonight and Workington's Carnegie Theatre, Saturday - have worked with stellar names such as David Bowie, Janet Jackson, Jon Bon Jovi, Brian Adams, Keith Emerson and more.

Having played across the UK for many years, including the O2 in Liverpool, the Ulverston and Workington gigs are apparently the band's first sortie farther north towards the Lake District and beyond: "Audiences in the north west are fantastic," says Cambridge-based keyboard player Gordon Reid. "Always quick to let you know when they like something and - so I’ve heard - equally happy to let you know if they don’t, so we're really looking forward to returning. We’ll be performing our Wall Around The Moon concert. This highlights Pink Floyd’s 1979 album The Wall, which remains as relevant today as it was when it was released 40 years ago. In addition, we've put together a section that contains some classic tracks from Meddle, Wish You Were Here, Animals and A Momentary Lapse Of Reason and, of course, we’ll be playing our signature performance of the whole of Dark Side Of The Moon: complete and unbroken as it was always meant to be."

Backed by a powerful visual show provided by Audio Plus of Colchester, The Floyd Effect has been touring for 12 years, not only in theatres up and down the country, but also headlining festivals such as Legends Of Rock, Tribfest and the forthcoming Cyprus Rocks Festival in Cyprus in October.

"Fans of Pink Floyd know every nuance of the music," adds bassist Garry Tyrrell. “And they would know instantly if we failed to capture an arrangement, a solo, or even a mood correctly, so we owe it to them to get everything right. It helps that everyone in The Floyd Effect loves the music of Pink Floyd as much as the audience does."

Long before they became one of the largest grossing acts of all time, Pink Floyd was formed in The Floyd Effect’s home city of Cambridge.
