Shisha Cafe presents Friday Tribute Night
Pink Floyd, British rock band at the forefront of 1960s psychedelia who later popularised the concept album for mass rock audiences in the 1970s. The principal members were lead guitarist Syd Barrett (original name Roger Keith Barrett), bassist Roger Waters , drummer Nick Mason, keyboard player Rick Wright (Richard Wright), and guitarist David Gilmour.
Formed in 1965, the band went through several name changes before combining the first names of a pair of Carolina bluesmen, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council. Their initial direction came from vocalist-guitarist-songwriter Barrett, whose mixture of blues, music hall styles, Lewis Carroll references, and dissonant psychedelia established the band as a cornerstone of the British underground scene.
Making records that were song-based but thematic in approach and that included long instrumental passages, the band did much to popularise the concept album. They hit the commercial jackpot with Dark Side of the Moon (1973). A bleak treatise on death and emotional breakdown underlined by Waters’s dark songwriting, it sent Pink Floyd soaring into the megastar bracket and remained in the American pop charts for more than a decade. The follow-up, Wish You Were Here (1975), included “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” a song for Barrett, and, though it went to number one in both the United States and Britain, it was considered anticlimactic and pompous by many critics.
Join us for a legendary night on the 22nd of February, 8:30 pm onwards as we pay a fantastic tribute to the Pink Floyd.
