For many fans, Pink Floyd’s demise began in 1982 when the gang kicked Richard Wright out of the group, for others it’s when Roger Waters left in 1985, or maybe the real end came when Wright passed away in 2008. All of that is to say that most of us assume we will never experience the band’s epic live performance again. The Black Jacket Symphony would like to change that and to do so they’ve put together a hand-selected group of musicians to recreate an entire Pink Floyd album. The band includes artists like J. Willoughby and Jason Rogoff who will perform, note for note, The Dark Side of the Moon. The band will also play a selection of Pink Floyd hits like “Wish You Were Here,” “Comfortably Numb,” “Hey You,” and of course, “Another Brick in the Wall.” The Black Jacket Symphony goes to great lengths to create the most realistic and engaging performance, but don’t mistake them for a tribute band — they’ve also toured other notable albums like Escape by Journey and Hotel California by The Eagles.
