Pink Talking Fish is a Hybrid Tribute Fusion Act that takes the music from three of the world’s most beloved bands and creates a special treat for fans of the music.

Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads and Phish are all more than just bands… they are Phenomenons.  Their creations have artistically inspired people and their mind-blowing live performances have brought people together to form a special sense of community around the love for their favorite band.

Although the music from each act is different, Pink Talking Fish has discovered that fusing the material together creates an amazing story.  The epic emotion of Pink Floyd…. The funky, danceable layerings of The Talking Heads…. The multitude of styles, unique compositional structures and pure fun of Phish…. to merge these three into one gives music lovers a special experience.

Pink Talking Fish features Eric Gould on bass, Richard James on keyboards, Zack Burwick on drums and Cal Kehoe on guitar.  This is a band created by musicians who love the music of these acts.  It’s purpose is to heighten people’s passion for this music by creating something fresh and exciting for fans.

Discovering connections is part of the fun:  Pink Floyd’s “On The Run” seamlessly fitting in the middle of the composition of Phish’s “You Enjoy Myself”.  Perfectly placing Phish’s “Sand” into the groove of The Talking Head’s “Slippery People”.  Segued collections from all three acts such as Run Like Hell > Making Flippy Floppy > Piper > Run Like Hell or Mike’s Song > Have A Cigar > Once In A Lifetime > Weekapaug Groove.  These ideas are the spirit behind Pink Talking Fish.

The story is ever evolving.  The experience is always exciting.  Come join Pink Talking Fish for the ultimate fusion tribute and celebrate the love of this music in unique fashion.

Escaper is a progressive rock band based in New York City. Defined as “one who breaks free from confinement,” Escaper’s lush and complex music knows no bounds. The quartet builds intricate tracks using layer upon layer of harmonious soundscapes, transporting the listeners on an auditory journey. Their live performances are equally stunning, as they deliver dazzling improvisation alongside moving lyrics.

Escaper has come to be known for the synergy between Will Hanza (guitar, vocals) and Phil Kadet (keys). After a brief hiatus during the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic, they were quickly joined by drummer Sam Crespo and bassist Luke Bemand, and the four have been making music together ever since. Crespo and Bemand bring a wealth of experience to the band; Crespo tours with notable future jam act Space Bacon, while Bemand handles the low end for heavy groove trio lespecial.

The band has shared stages with the likes of Jon Fishman (Phish), Karl Denson, and JEDI (ft. Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein of the Disco Biscuits).
