"Capturing what made Pink Floyd iconic is a hard thing to do, and
Pigs on the Wing come as close as anyone weve heard. That looming mystique, that inscrutable grandiosity......Those qualities are alive and well with Pigs on the Wing" - Adam McKinney, OLY ARTS 5/10/17
Portland, Oregon based Pink Floyd tribute Pigs on the Wing is pleased to announce their 2018 production, 'Finding the Dark Side of the Moon' a 2 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 of the original rock scene and 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.
Finding the Dark Side of the Moon: After immersing themselves in the polished rock theatrics of The Wall during the 2017 season the band felt it was time to try something different. Pigs on the Wing's 2018 production - 'Finding the Dark Side of the Moon', represents a full circle in some ways. As the band's 2 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 11 years, the band's regional fanbase has grown exponentially alongside the band themselves as musicians, as well as the scale of the show as an immersive audio-visual experience.
This time around expect 2 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.
