The Gilmour Project
In this 50th year of Pink Floyd’s certifiably mad 1973 masterpiece The Dark Side of the Moon, and with every Floyd-themed band known to Man going all out to honor its Golden Anniversary, you could conceivably be able to hear the album played live all year long. And, thanks to an endless supply of PF tribute bands, you can bet it will be played again and again and again, well into the distant future.
Sometimes when musicians combine different musical genres, it can be a case of worlds colliding, with collateral damage thrown about. And then, in cases such as veteran rock guitarist Jeff Pevar and his current band The Gilmour Project, multiple influences come together in a harmonic convergence that creates deep, new electrical reactions, with many good vibes but no debris left to clean up.
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of David Gilmour & Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon with quadrophonic sound & a Floydian lightshow, acclaimed musicians Jeff Pevar, Kasim Sulton, Prairie Prince, Mark Karan & Scott Guberman perform the music of David Gilmour’s Pink Floyd, featuring the heavy psychedelic lift of audacious and beloved ‘Gilmour-centric’ Pink Floyd songs and rarities from David’s solo catalog.
If you haven’t heard the early reports yet, there’s a new all-star psych/jam band making quite a stir with their exploratory shows and streaming events called The Gilmour Project. Yes, “Gilmour,” as in guitarist David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. But nearly the only thing this “project” has in common with their namesake is the same deep well of cosmic-blues-based progressive rock first dug out by the original band.
