The gorgeous and acoustically perfect Coronado Performing Arts Center in Rockford, IL was the perfect venue for Brit Floyd. From the time the lights dimmed to the end of the performance the audience was treated to the best Pink Floyd tribute there is today! The laser and light show perfectly synced to the performance made for a perfect evening. The first act opened with “Cluster One” which immediately received a loud response from the audience and it only got better and louder from there. Other songs in the first act included “Another Brick In The Wall Part 2″, “Us And Them”, and ended with “Eclipse” which brought the crowd to its feet for an extended ovation. If you closed your eyes you would swear that Pink Floyd themselves were performing. But, closing  your eyes would have been a bad idea as the animation, lights, and lasers only added to a fantastic performance.

After a 20 minute intermission, Brit Floyd picked up right where they left off with “Astronomy Domine” and served up great hits like “Money”, “Wish You Were Here”, and “Comfortably Numb”. A fantastic performance from beginning to end! Brit Floyd is a performance definitely worth your while if it comes to a venue near by! You won’t regret it!

I got my first camera when I was in the 5th Grade and at 52 years old, I still haven't stopped shooting! My first concert was Van Halen in 1978 and I have seen hundreds of bands since. I love all genre's of music (some more than others), but it doesn't matter if I like the artist's music or not, there is just something about a live performance that I just can't get enough of. I have been an event photographer, house photographer, and have had my photos shown in many online and print publications. I hope you enjoy my work and I look forward to shooting and reviewing many shows!
