            On Saturday, May 9, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and KRVM proudly welcome to the WOW Hall Pigs on the Wing: Dark Side of the Rainbow.           

            Imagine the energy and electric intensity of Dark Side of the Moon era Pink Floyd in an intimate theater the size of the WOW Hall. Hailing from Portland, Pigs on the Wing has been delivering just that spellbinding experience since 2006.  They play music true to the original and unapologetic in its interpretation.  

            Since its inception as a one-off performance of Dark Side of the Moon, to the band's current touring production which has included live renditions of the infamous Wizard of Oz sync, full performances of multiple Floyd albums, and music from every era of Pink Floyd's career, Pigs on the Wing heavily emphasizes the rock dynamics and psychedelic intensity of 1970s era Floyd.  The result is a show that is an authentic, accurately performed yet refreshing take on the music and experience of Pink Floyd.

             The band members believe that any Floyd fan will appreciate what Pigs on the Wing does with the music.  After all, none are bigger Floyd fans than the members of Pigs on the Wing themselves.  As vocalist Keeley St. Clair put it in a recent interview in Oregon Music News, “I think I can speak for everyone in the band in saying that we take good care to be stewards of the music that we admire so much...  It’s a big responsibility to play such well-loved music.”

            Pigs on the Wing are: Jason Baker (guitar, vocals); Matt Jones (keys, vocals); Eric Welder (bass); Bryan Fairfield (drums); David Lindenbaum (guitar, vocals); Keeley St. Clair (backing vocals) and Pete Galluzzo (saxophone).

            In addition to performing the infamous Dark Side of the Moon – Wizard of Oz sync live, Pigs on the Wing will follow with a full second set of classic Pink Floyd tunes.

 

 

"...once you’ve slaved over the Floyd and poured it masterfully from a stage, it's in your blood — and your repertoire — forever...it’s no stretch whatsoever to imagine that this lineup... would feel right at home in the Pink Floyd catalog, with an emphasis on the group’s monumental ’70s output..." - Corvallis Gazette-Times 10-21-11

 

            Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 9:00.
