PIGS ON THE WING: A TRIBUTE TO PINK FLOYD
“Capturing what made Pink Floyd iconic is a hard thing to do, and Pigs on the Wing
come as close as anyone we’ve heard. That looming mystique, that inscrutable
grandiosity......Those qualities are alive and well with Pigs on the Wing.” - Adam


McKinney, OLY ARTS 5/10/17
Close your eyes and imagine having the opportunity to experience the soaring majesty of Pink
Floyd's music in an intimate venue. That is the Pigs on the Wing experience: a melding of the epic,
arena- scale of Pink Floyd with the visceral experience of being front row at a rock club.
Pigs on the Wing has on occasion been referred to as "the most punk rock of the Pink Floyd
tributes" and that is a badge the band wears with unequivocal pride. None are bigger fans of the
work of Pink Floyd than the members of Pigs on the Wing, and while the band approaches the
material with the deepest respect for legacy of the music, they also chart a course suggesting a
willingness to push the musical boundaries of a traditional tribute band.


Tracing its roots to a one-off performance in Portland in 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily
developed a devoted fanbase and a reputation for delivering a high quality, high energy take on Pink
Floyd's music, steeped in the NW's own rich musical heritage. The band focuses on 1970s era Pink
Floyd and has in recent years featured full album performances of Dark Side of The Moon, Wish You
Were Here, Animals, and The Wall as well as a wide range of material from Floyd's earlier years.
All members of the band are seasoned veterans of the original NW rock scene and balance a
decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and
importance of Pink Floyd's music in many fans' lives. The result is a sound and experience both
refreshing in delivery and yet true to the original – something the band believes sets it apart from
other Pink Floyd tributes.


Pigs on the Wing’s 2021-2022 feature show is a full album performance of Pink Floyd’s 1975
psychedelic masterpiece Wish You Were Here, followed by a full second set of carefully curated Roger
Waters era Floyd. Pigs on the Wing is ( L to R): Eric Welder (bass / vocals); Holly Brooks (vocals); David
Lindenbaum (guitar / vocals); Pete Galluzzo (sax); Bryan Fairfield (drums); Matt Jones (keys / vocals); Jason
Baker (guitar / vocals)
