THE GILMOUR PROJECT
Add to Calendar
THE GILMOUR PROJECT is an All-Star Band exploring the music of DAVID GILMOUR's Pink Floyd.
Acclaimed musicians Jeff Pevar (guitar with CSN, David Crosby, Phil Lesh, Ray Charles); Prairie Prince (co founder of The Tubes, & drums with Todd Rundgren, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh); Kasim Sulton (bass with Utopia, Meatloaf & Blue Oyster Cult); Mark Karan (guitar with Bob Weir/Ratdog, The Other Ones, Phil Lesh) & Scott Guberman (keyboards with Phil Lesh) - come together for this heavy, psychedelic lift of audacious & beloved ‘Gilmour-centric’ Pink Floyd songs & rarities from David’s solo catalogue.
‘Why is this band called THE GILMOUR PROJECT? Why is it not called The Water’s Project? Why is it not called The Syd Barrett project?
The songs that compel exploration & improvisation are DAVID’s compositions principally. This does not dismiss iconic contributions of all 5 historic musicians that comprise the Pink Floyd complement.
ALL so called ‘Pink Floyd tributes‘ endeavor to recreate the albums or concerts & there is nothing wrong with simulacra. Some of them are great at that.
THE GILMOUR PROJECT, because it’s comprised of musicians whose background is both prog(ressive) AND improvisational - is the only band since BLUE FLOYD in 2000, endeavoring to take these songs ‘OUT,’ speaking in jazz protocol, without disregarding the cherished classic hooks, licks & musical phrases.
