Pleaserock performs Dark Side Of The Moon, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and Black Sea
Members of the Yacht Rock Revue and Please PleaseRock Me perform the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon - Both albums in their entirety from start to finish. The tunes comprising the Beatles' studio masterpiece, Sgt. Peppers, were never intended to be performed live... as made evident by the number of orchestral arrangements, carnival sounds, and animal farm noises. The PleaseRock collective tackles the challenge with delight in performing one of the most revered albums of all time.
PleaseRock will close the show by paring Floyd’s opus with a classic movie in a live recreation of a stoner myth: The Dark Side of the Rainbow (DSOTR) is the debateably coincidental pairing of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon as a sound track to the first 43 minutes of The Wizard of Oz. When you press play on the Dark Side on the second lion roar before the movie begins, there are dozens of eerie ways in which the music and movie match up. It’s a musical tightrope act, since the entire band has to stay precisely lined up with the film to maintain the pacing.
Nigels With Attitude open the show with XTC's most consistent and popular album, Black Sea. N.W.A., featuring members of YRR and PPRM along with guitar artist, Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow, Don Henley) and bassist/song-smith, Tim Smith (Sheryl Crow, Jellyfish), tackle a more refined and polished collection of works from one of the smartest -- and catchiest -- British pop bands to emerge from the punk and new wave explosion of the late '70s.
