Dead Floyd is a celebration of the music of two of rock and roll’s greatest bands, The Grateful Dead and Pink Floyd, mashed together into one high-energy, unpredictable show. Drawing from both extensive catalogs of music, the Dead Floyd performances include early rarities to modern classics and everything in between.
The band then decided to pump up the energy with some more amazing covers such as “Scent Of A Mule” and “Psycho Killer”. Soon after, the band did a wild mashup of “Wish You Were Here” and David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”. Blending the two songs flawlessly, Pink Talking Fish once again proved their talent in recreating classics and making it their own. Special Guests Charlie Humphreys and Matt Goldberg from Dead Floyd joined Pink Talking Fish to cover Phish’s song “Sand” as well as “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd.
Pink Talking Fish is a hybrid fusion band covering the legendary music of Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, and Phish. The band consists of 4 members. Richard James on keyboards, Eric Gould on bass, Zack Burwick on drums and Dave Brunyak on guitar and vocals. This band really knows how to embody the strong emotions in Pink Floyd's music. Also, the unique musical composition of Phish and the fun energetic funky beats of Talking Heads. Pink Talking Fish manages to blend all these sounds together to create an amazing story within every performance.
Pink Talking Fish is bringing their live fusion of Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads and Phish to Colorado in the form of a very special concept show. The band will perform the beloved Phish rock opera GAMEHENDGE in its entirety while intertwining Pink Floyd and Talking Heads songs throughout the piece. This concept debuted to rave reviews during a sold out Halloween performance in Boston MA. The band felt that bringing the Gamehendge concept to Colorado would be perfect based on the adventurous spirit of the state’s music scene.
