Blue Floyd is a conglomeration of former/current members of
the Allman Bros, Gov't Mule and the Black Crowes performing
blues interpretations of Pink Floyd songs and while the concept
may sound strange in reality the mix goes down just right.
The band have been in existence for around ten years and during
that time have built up a large and enthusiastic fan base for the
bands unique blend of styles. Whilst the band have an almost fluid
line up with members coming and going the concept remains a
steady one and also one that is proving extremely popular in
the live arena.
This concert recording took place in January 2000 and features
the line up of Allen Woody - guitar, bass & vocals, Matt Abts -
drums, Marc Ford - guitar & vocals, Johnny Neel - keyboards,
harmonica & vocals Berry Oakley - bass, percussion & vocals
As well as the obvious blues workouts the band also include
their own particular take on the Floyd classics including; Shine
On You Crazy Diamond, Fearless, Set the Controls For The
Heart Of The Sun, Wish You Were Here, Sheep and Money.
Blue Floyd are as you can imagine a true musical experience
where one genre of music meets another and finds a place to
accommodate both styles.
