THE BAND

Anybody Out There - The Ultimate Pink Floyd Experience

 

Anybody Out There is a musical celebration of one of the most iconic progressive rock bands of all time - Pink Floyd. Their evocative show is a spectacular stage production that authentically and reverently emulates the sonic and visual intensity and emotion of a live Pink Floyd performance complete with an extensive light show including the iconic circular projection screen.

 

The band’s immaculate attention to detail and painstakingly accurate recreations of instrumental tones and vocal textures combined with a curated collection of authentic sound effects meticulously reproduce the intimate and dynamic soundscapes for which Pink Floyd is renowned.

 

The band continues its tradition of covering the entire Pink Floyd catalog from the early psychedelic era through the theatricality of the later albums. Popular hits including Money, Wish You Were Here, Another Brick in the Wall and Shine On You Crazy Diamond are performed alongside deep cuts for the true Floyd fanatics. The band also performs the legendary album “The Dark Side Of The Moon" in its entirety at certain shows.

A Western New York native growing up in Niagara Falls NY, his friends would all attest that Steve was always at the piano. Playing popular songs by ear and simultaneously being classically trained, Steve majored in piano at the University of Buffalo, quickly becoming a well- rounded keyboardist. After graduating he joined a local rock band that got noticed by a Toronto talent agency and soon toured for 10 years, beginning with Lizard King (a tribute to the Doors), followed by various Top 40 Bands, and various solo piano gigs and studio work. Returning home, he joined Buffalo’s blues band Win, Lose or Draw which, throughout the 90’s, won numerous local awards. Changing his focus Steve formed a classic soul band, The Soul Providers, that was also widely successful winning multiple awards. During that time, he was involved with an original band Copper and Gin that got critical acclaim for their unique Americana sound.  After the pandemic, Steve went back to his rock roots and enjoys entertaining as an accomplished vocalist as well as keyboardist in the band Mo Porter. Steve is always looking for new challenges and looks forward to playing  the unique keyboards needed for Anybody Out There.
