    .. and all video references I found were dated 2011 or something like that.

    Did someone here saw them recently? Are they still great, same line up?

    Does it matter? As long as it sounds like the records...

    If they're smart, they'd be like Transiberian Orchestra and franchise out several bands.

    Agreed.....does it matter? They're just copying records anyway!

    I believe it matters... We have local Pink Floyd tribute bands also and they are good but as I could see in their videos these guys do high standard concert with pristine instrumental and vocals, great lighting and effects, as close as possible of a true PF show.

    Just would like to know if they still plays like that. Have you seem them recently?

    I saw them in the fall of 2013. They were awesome. Sound and lights/visuals were spot on. The only complaint I had about the show was venue specific - our original seats were hard stage right behind the projection of sound from the mains. Everything sounded like garbage and we were hearing all kinds of phase issues and I was incredibly disappointed, until we moved the the centre of the stage and farther back at intermission. Then everything was perfect. Highly recommend going to see them!

    I saw them in November last year. I've seen them several times and they've always been good but this last show; and it is a show, was really great. I believe it was the same musicians as usual.

    Good to know they are investing! Will go for sure!

    I kinda feel a bit of prejudice with tribute bands here... really?

    Went to this show last night and was one of the best shows of my life!

    Sure were not the "guys" on stage but Brit Floyd delivered a hellova performance. They played really well, arrangements were spot on. Amazing tone on each instrument. Perfect mix. Vocals were great. Female vocal on "The Great Gig.. " was pristine

    Just the above would earn them a high rate but there was stage production also and OMG it was unbelievable. Lights and sounds nice synchronized, great visual impact and they produced 3D animation with all Storm and Gerard characters, Sandman, Faceless Executive, The Diver, The Pig. The Teacher they all came to life in their environment and perform their role in the Pink Floyd world in attention to the mood in the music being played. Those guys really dig the Floyd philosophy.

    They are really professionals and if you ask me if I would spend my money to see them again?... Anytime bro!!

    Oh and those guitar tones....

    Well they are a 'show' so even if the players are different I'm sure they will be up to the same standard. This isn't your typical tribute band.

    I just saw a PBS show last night with them playing at Red Rocks and they were pretty impressive. Did the entire Dark Side album then some other stuff.

    They sound identical every shot. Don't worry, go see them, it will be awesome.

    I saw them in Pittsburgh Friday night and I was very impressed. They sounded great in a great theater. Light show was killer. going to see them again in August.
