A MASSIVE thanks goes out to those bands and artists who have supported us, or have donated their songs for our rotations and playlists.
The Wall Of Sound
The newest in a long list of Pink Floyd tribute bands, The Wall of Sound recreate Floyd as it was when music was live and exciting. No studio tracks, no vocal enhancers, just musicians and singers in harmony to recreate, note for note, the very best of the Floyd back catalogue.
The band is the brainchild of aficionado and Musical Director Mark Dearden who has plundered his musical connections from the past 25 years to put together a line-up that can do justice to his childhood heroes.
Their shows come complete with a dazzling laser and light show, as well as the obligatory circular screen to enhance the experience of days gone by.

The Flaming Gnomes are a Hertfordshire based band that was hastily put together in early 2007 by local musicians to record a version of Pink Floyd's Arnold Layne as part of an EMI / Myspace / David Gilmour competition.
Although we were not lucky enough to have Storm Thorgerson design our logo, we were very fortunate to have the next best thing in former Hipgnosis man Jeff Cummins do it instead.
Jeff will be designing the record sleeve too and along with some loudly coloured vinyl, It should make for a very interesting product and a very collectable record as we are told only 300 are being pressed.

Andrew is a very talented musician with a diverse repertoire displaying a wide range of styles.
Two contributions to our playlists, “Looses Out” and “Welcome” demonstrate Andrew's originality.
“Welcome” in particular would not be out of place on Roger Water's “Amused To Death". Both tracks show how talent can match creativeness to a floydian ambience.
