20th Anniversary and beyond….

Hi everyone.

You may or may not be aware that this band was originally formed in Coventry way back in 1996 by founder members John Wall, Barry Page and Stuart ‘Cossy’ Cosgrove. To consider that we’re still around after 20 years of performing Pink Floyd music on stages up and down the many corners of the UK is a considerable achievement, one which everyone who’s sailed on the good ship DSOTW are immensely proud of.

That being the case we started 2016 thinking about how best to mark this special occasion. We agreed it HAD to be in Coventry. After all, it’s the band’s birthplace. But to be honest, we’ve struggled to find a venue in our home city where we could put on the full stage show that we perform in other venues around the UK. This has a been something of a frustration until now…we checked out the newly opened EMPIRE on Far Gosford Street a few months back. What an incredible venue for live music! It soon became apparent that it was a no-brainer that our 20th Anniversary show should take place there. The venue is specially set up for live music, and this is no surprise given that it’s been opened and run by the guys from the well-respected and quite superb Coventry band The Enemy. They were only too pleased to have us at their place on SATURDAY 3rd SEPTEMBER and it will be the first time we’ve been able to bring our full light show, circle and video projections to Coventry. We simply can’t wait for that and really hope that many people who have seen the band over those two decades will come and support the occasion. Will be great to see all the Floydies and followers of DSOTW – old and new!

Full venue details are:


Far Gosford Street, Coventry CV1 5DU


Tickets can be purchased online via The Empire’s website HERE

You can keep in touch with all info ahead of the show via our Facebook page where we hope to post news of ‘special guests’ on the night.
For those people looking beyond the Anniversary show we have a very busy Autumn schedule coming up – thank goodness after the long summer lay off! Here’s the dates to look for:

Sat 1st October
Swan Theatre, Worcester: We’ve been playing The Swan annually since 2004 and each year we have a brilliant show there. Simply love this place!

Sat 15th October
Melton Tavern Banqueting Suite, Melton Mowbray: A brand new venue for us. We’re co-promoting our own show in this fabulous room based at the Melton Mowbray Cattle Market in conjunction with Abstract Audio, our new lighting guys that are local to the area. Tickets are available via email from us (band@pinkfloydtribute.co.uk) or can be purchased on the door on the night.

Sat 29th October
Norden Farm Centre For The Arts, Maidenhead: We made our debut at this fabulous venue last summer and can’t wait to build on that show. An amazing theatre!

Sat 19th November
The Musician, Leicester: Always a great atmosphere in this brilliant small live music venue.

Sat 17th December
The Roadhouse, Birmingham: The same applies here. It’s why we keep going back. Always such a brilliant night and we’re thrilled to get a pre-xmas gig again. Sold out last time!

We already have a few shows booked in for 2017 too so check out the ‘LIVE’ page on our website for details on those.

Hope to see you at The Empire on Saturday 3rd September for a proper Floydie knees-up!
