ChristKindlFest 2014 opens tomorrow and runs through Sunday, December 7th, and we’re down to our last five of twelve reasons not to miss this year’s 4-day event. Reason #8 that you want to be sure to make it to the fest this year is to see Think Floyd USA in concert on Saturday night. Much more than a tribute band, Think Floyd is a “celebration of the music of Pink Floyd” and I hear they put on an amazing light show to accompany their crowd pleasing covers.
Originally started as a Classic Rock band back 1992 under a different name, the band is currently celebrating their 10th Anniversary as Think Floyd USA or TFUSA, for short. Covering music from Piper at the Gates of Dawn through The Division Bell, TFUSA is known for their fresh, exciting, pure rock approach to the music of Pink Floyd.
From the pulsing “Run Like Hell” to the soulful lead guitar solo of “Shine On Crazy Diamond”; from the searing vocals in “Great Gig in the Sky” to the grand finale sing-along, “Comfortably Numb”, TFUSA weaves their story through nine incredibly talented musicians and an equally dazzling choreographed light show.
TFUSA invites the audiences to sing-a-long and to be part of the show and satisfies even the most hard core Pink Floyd fan by often performing entire albums along with many “deep-cut” favorites.
Full Throttle Magazine called TFUSA, “the best kept secret in the U.S.”, as well as, “Absolutely amazing….the best Pink Floyd tribute anywhere.” TFUSA was voted best tribute band by Chicago’s Metromix music magazine by the fans two years in a row.
Think Floyd USA is performing at Barrington ChristKindlFest from 8:30 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, December 6th. The cover charge to see the show is only $10 and you can click here to purchase ticket sin advance.
