Welcome to the Pure Floyd website.
Announcement from Derek
Hi, I have with a heavy heart made the decision to leave Pure Floyd to concentrate on my own wrting efforts in 2013. I have enjoyed my time playing Pink Floyd music since joining Pure Floyd in 2008, and indeed may wish to return to it in future if the opportunity arises, and they'll have me back(!) if needed.
Playing the Floyd has been a huge challenge and privilege, and it has taught me so much on many fronts. But I have an itch to scratch, and now feel the burning need to get my own original music into recorded and gigging form. As my free time is limited, I have had to make the agonising decision on what I wish to/need to prioritise on.
I wish Pete and Jeff the best of luck to keep the flame going. And thanks to all of the support that we have had from our fans over the years that has made Pure floyd one of the most enjoyable bands that I have gigged in. Good band mates and good audiences make all the difference!
But it's time for a fresh challenge, and I want to apply the Floyd experience to my own music.
About Pure Floyd
Pure Floyd are a South Wales based Pink Floyd Tribute Band, dedicated to reproducing the classic songs from Pink Floyd in a live environment.
We can scale ourselves from small and intimate venues upwards. Where space permits we can also operate a light show to add even more atmosphere to the gigs.
Pure Floyd play a varied selection of Pink Floyd covers as a tribute to this classic band. Covering material from classic albums, such as "Dark Side of The Moon", "Wish You "Were Here", "The Wall" and "The Division Bell", amongst others.
Recreating the "full" Pink Floyd sound live is quite a challenge. Even Pink Floyd supplemented their live performances with backing tapes and additional musicians. As a small line up, we have supplemental instruments and backing vocals on backing tracks as well as the sound effects, but we believe that we still achieve the vibe that makes a good live performance something magical.
