Echoes of Pink Floyd are an Adelaide-produced tribute act who are heading to The Wedge in Sale next month as part of their A Journey Through Time tour.

The band says their one goal is “to authentically recreate the wonderful sights and sounds of one of the world’s greatest progressive bands for the enjoyment of fans aged 9–99”.

The show will feature young local performers in each town to provide the memorable “Another Brick in the Wall Part 2” choir.

The performance at The Wedge will be the first show of the year.

Singer Matt Goodluck said they had a wonderful experience when they previously visited the Sale venue in 2018.

“We really enjoyed the enthusiastic and warm reception from the audience who certainly know their Pink Floyd music,” Mr Goodluck said.

“As soon as we created our new show we knew we wanted to include Sale on our list of tour dates.

“We had actually intended to get there last year but COVID had other ideas.

“So we thought – what better way to kick off 2022 than to go to a familiar and friendly venue?

“We find that regional audiences are warm and appreciative of the effort we go to, to recreate this amazing music. That’s why we always include so many regional venues on our tour schedule.”

Mr Goodluck said that the idea of A Journey Through Time is to take the audience on a musical trip through the highlights of Pink Floyd’s vast back catalogue.

“It’s the first time we’ve touched on the Syd Barrett years after many fans had been asking us to do so over the years,” he said.

“So we start at the very beginning of their career and work our way through what we consider to be the most important moments.

“We’ve got the big hits, the fan favourites and a few obscure album cuts for the hard core fans so there’s something there for everyone.”

When asked if he was on Team David Gilmour or Team Roger Waters, Mr Goodluck said he was on “Team Pink Floyd”.

“I’m quite fortunate to have a vocal range that sits fairly comfortably within both David and Roger’s ranges,” he said.

“Together they complemented each other so well, which led to some amazing music.”

Mr Goodluck said the band puts in many hours of both personal and group practice to ensure they can replicate the songs with accuracy.

“We stay as true as we can to the original studio album versions because we know this is what most fans are most familiar with,” he said.

“After learning the material and putting it all together as a band, we then look forward to performing the music for audiences with the same passion that made us all huge Pink Floyd fans to begin with.”

Echoes of Pink Floyd will be performing at The Wedge in Sale on Friday, February 11.
