Pink Floyd tribute band Pigs coming to Nelson

On Saturday, October 13 Pigs Canada’s most authentic Pink Floyd tribute band will take the stage with openers Kytami and Spaceport Union.

On Saturday, October 13 Pigs Canada’s most authentic Pink Floyd tribute band, with special guest openers Kytami — former violinist from Delhi 2 Dublin and progressive rock group Spaceport Union.

These three bands from the Greater Victoria area are heading to Nelson to give an amazing performance at the Nelson and District Community Complex arena.

Pigs will amaze the audience with their uncanny resemblance of the songs of Pink Floyd and also being able to feel and jam like the originals.

The band will be performing a lot of Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here songs and including 1960s Floyd early tunes.

To increase the power of this performance there will be a sax player and female backing singers.

Due the passing of Richard Wright in 2008, Pink Floyd fans lost hope of ever seeing their favourite band re-united. But Pigs offers the next best thing; an authentic look back into the breathtaking past of one of the world’s most timeless bands.

Kytami — violinist extremist — is undeniably Canada’s most diverse and engaging fiddle player. A Shambhala favourite, Kytami performed and co-wrote two albums with multi-cultural award winning band Delhi 2 Dublin. Now she has her own self titled album and is garnering rave reviews.

Progressive rock group Spaceport was nominated for two 2012 Victoria Music Awards including Best Female Vocalist and Best Male Vocalist. The group’s music is inspiring and very creative with a new album release named Flirting with the Queen, which is getting a lot of airplay in the United Kingdom.

There are 400 early bird advance tickets available for $20 until September 29 at Finley’s Pub. Visa/MC/debit accepted) by phone at 250-352-5121 or in person at 705 Vernon Street. In Trail tickets are available at Sound West. This is an all-ages show, so bring the whole family.
