Local musicians Kate and Andrew Kirby have teamed up with Doug Kunkowski, Clay Jurenka and Brenda Barber to perform the music of Pink Floyd with a unique laser light and video show the last weekend of each month at the Big Sandy Music Hall. The show hopes to bring tourists to the Big Sandy area.
Aptly titled Floyd Void, the show premiered in April, and brought guests from Dallas, Longview and Tyler. The May show brought guests from as far as Oklahoma City.
“The show is amazing and if you close your eyes, it just sounds like Pink Floyd,” said Tracy Holt-Christian, from McKinney, Texas. “There’s just something surreal about seeing listening to Pink Floyd in an old church,” she continued. “We’ll definitely be back before the end of the summer.”
“Brenda Barber is on vacation, so we have local singer/songwriter Heather Little filling in on Friday June 29, and Medea Richey, formerly of Bricks in the Wall, on Saturday, June 30,” said Kate Kirby, bassist and vocalist for the group. Bricks in the Wall is a Pink Floyd tribute band that holds the exclusive contract for performances at the House of Blues locations in Texas. Barber will be back for the remaining shows, she said.
The show continues to draw fans from all over Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Show dates are scheduled for June 29 & 30, July 27 & 28 and August 31 and Sept 1. Tickets are $15 in advance at bigsandymusichall.com or $20 at the door.
