The Gilmour Project incorporates musicians whose background is both prog(ressive) improvisational; and, is the only band since Blue Floyd in 2000, endeavoring 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), Kasim Sulton (bass & vocals with Todd Rundgren’s Utopia, Meatloaf, Blue Oyster Cult, Hall & Oates, Cheap Trick & Patti Smith), 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), will take the music of David Gilmour & Pink Floyd to places it has never gone before.
Blue Floyd was formed in January 2000, at the dawn of the 21st Century, taking full advantage of the then ‘new’ thing they called social media. A conglomeration of top-notch players from other bands came together to spread this music marked by the use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, and elaborate live shows. International tape collectors codifying the band’s utter brilliance created an enduring mystique apart from & in contrast to the tribute band phenomenon. 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.
