The Gilmour Project to Show Their “Dark Side” at Empire Albany
ALBANY – Announced today through SLP Concerts and Step Up Presents is The Gilmour Project, appearing at Empire Live in Albany on March 9th. The doors will open at 7:00 pm for an 8:00 pm show.
The Gilmour Project was poised and ready to launch in April 2020, then the world hit the pause button. They re-emerge in 2021 pivoting to David Gilmour’s Pink Floyd repertoire. The songs that compel exploration & improvisation are mainly Gilmour’s and this rendition certainly does not dismiss the iconic contributions of all 5 historic musicians that comprise the Pink Floyd complement. The Gilmour Project incorporates musicians whose background is both prog(ressive) AND improvisational. Since 2000, they are the only band apart from Blue Floyd – their predecessor – to endeavor to take these songs ‘OUT,’ speaking in jazz protocol, without disregarding the cherished classic hooks, licks & musical phrases.
Acclaimed musicians Jeff Pevar (lead guitar with CSN, David Crosby, Phil Lesh, Ray Charles) and Kasim Sulton (bass & vocals with Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Meatloaf & Blue Oyster Cult), Prairie Prince (co-founder of The Tubes, & drums with Todd Rundgren, Jefferson Starship, Phil Lesh), Mark Karan (guitar & vocals with Bob Weir, RatDog, The Other Ones), and Scott Guberman (keyboard & vocals with Phil Lesh), are more than psyched to bring you The Gilmour Project. The band goes beyond improvisational while remaining faithful to Floyd’s musical touchstones. That combination has resulted in an incessant demand for the band’s triumphant return.
The improvisational ‘jam gestalt’ of the legendary Blue Floyd, which both Pevar & Prince performed with, matched with Pink Floyd deep tracks, hits and fan favorites, including solo Gilmour gems, and accompanied by ‘Floydian’ audio FX from Paul Simon producer ‘The Duke of New York’ (Graceland – The Remixes) gives you none other than The Gilmour Project.
Tickets for this show go on sale on March 9th. Pricing per ticket for this event is $30 in advance and $35 when purchased on the day of the event. Purchases can be at www.ticketweb.com, or at the club box office.
