MARCH 21: PIGS: CANADA’S MOST AUTHENTIC PINK FLOYD TRIBUTE!
PIGS, Canada’s Most Authentic Pink Floyd Tribute will be bringing their critically acclaimed show to the PG Playhouse in 2017. Their PIGS ON THE WING show celebrates the 40th anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd’s 1977 classic album Animals. One of the band’s heaviest and most political statements, the concept album has become a favourite for legions of fans, and Pigs will be performing the album in its entirety, in addition to material from across the band’s legendary repertoire. PIGS continues to surprise and delight audiences with authentic performances of Pink Floyd classics, including many songs which have rarely (if ever) been performed live. The lights, lasers, giant screen, and utterly authentic live sound come together to recreate the experience of seeing Pink Floyd live in the 1970s. PIGS’ claim to fame is their authenticity. PIGS recreate the Pink Floyd sound with authentic gear and accurate live renditions of the songs. Every last detail of the look, sound, and feel of Pink Floyd’s classic era is meticulously worked out and perfected and each band member assumes the role of their Floyd counterpart. Since their inception seven years ago, PIGS has been amazing audiences with their dynamic re-creation of one of the world’s favourite rock groups. With the passing of keyboardist Richard Wright in 2008, fans of Pink Floyd lost hope of ever again seeing their favourite band re-united. PIGS offer the next best thing: an authentic look back into the breathtaking past of one of the world’s most timeless bands. http://www.canadapinkfloyd.com

Brian Stollery rarely waits more than a heartbeat before inviting his audiences to have a laugh at his expense. Observational, autobiographical and hilariously self-deprecating, Brian Stollery’s brand of comedy reveals the underlying absurdity of everyday life in a way that’s as scathingly honest as it is fast paced and energetic.
Stollery has performed on CBC radio’s “The Debaters” and festivals including the ‘CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival and Global Comedyfest in Vancouver and he was the 1st Winner of SiriusXM “Top Comic!” competition.
