After more than 16 years of rare and singular performances, the Pacific Northwest musical collective known as The Floydian Slips continues to tear through the discography of classic Pink Floyd, performing note-perfect renditions of many of the iconic hits and deep cuts composed by the British-rock band.
Each Floydian Slips concert is different, with unique set lists and special effects, and the band moves from “greatest hits” tributes to full-length album performances depending on its collective mood.
“Our repertoire spans Saucerful of Secrets to Momentary Lapse of Reason,” said founding member Paul Lesinski, “with a heavy emphasis on the 70’s heyday of The Dark Side of The Moon thru The Wall.”
“We don’t try and capture the look of the original Pink Floyd concerts or mimic their stage shows exactly. However, we adopt the same spirit of creativity and freedom that they always employed in their concerts. We’ll try any idea that is realistic and we’ve done a lot of different things, from screen projections to lasers.”
Born from a one-off idea to play through Pink Floyd's classic The Dark Side Of The Moon album during a single concert at the Wild Duck Music Hall in Eugene, the eight-piece band has grown into a musical ensemble that captures the essence of Pink Floyd, with emphatic tone placed just right where it belongs in each song.
With spot-on vocals, perfect guitar solos, epic keyboard layers and Floydian-laid-back drum and bass grooves, the real Pink Floyd experience is enhanced during Floydian Slips concerts with unique visuals specifically designed for each show (hint, hint).
The band approaches the classic music with all the curmudgeon, stoniness, swagger and attitude of the men who wrote the songs, and never fails to impress the naysayers while delivering the specific notes in the right places to please any Pink Floyd fanatic.
Having performed The Dark Side Of The Moon, Animals and The Wall in their entirety many times, set lists have included most of the Wish You Were Here album, as well as select material from A Saucerful of Secrets, Meddle, and A Momentary Lapse of Reason, all played with great care to reproduce the original sounds and emotions of The Floyd as closely as possible.
Band members include Nicole Campbell (vocals); Ehren Ebbage (vocals, guitar); Ned Failing (drums, percussion); Asher Fulero (keyboards, vocals); Paul Lesinski (vocals, guitar); Brendan Relaford (bass); Rich Sellars (vocals, drums, percussion); and Al Toribio (lead guitar, vocals).
