ABOUT US

“As if by magic, the eerie strains of SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND wafted over the assembled masses - 12,000 Floyd-mad bikers at the MAG Festival 2004.”

The inspiration; the people; the places; the highlights.

2003 and Ted tells me “I ran across our old friend and drummer ROB SMITH yesterday”.

“I hope you reversed to make sure you got him” came the reply.

 

We assembled the required musicians for the job. We even recruited 3 stunning backing singers we nicknamed THE DIAMONDS. We honed the set in the wilds of Whitburn, Tyne & Wear. After a couple of months, we decided to treat the locals to free taste of what was to come. On hearing of a free nights entertainment, the locals came out in force (and in their pyjamas some of ‘em) and so was born the career of

SHINE ON.

 

A couple of warm up gigs and we were away. After only a year on the circuit, but with a great reputation already and the legendary venue that is Newcastle City Hall beckoned.

 

One 36 foot pig later, and gig after gig followed with each audience becoming even more enthusiastic as we went.

 

A victorious return gig to Helmsley in 2006 was a truly epic gig to film for DVD output. This became our first and still our best seller. In the meantime we had been voted UK’S #1 PINK FLOYD TRIBUTE by the visitors to the Official Pink Floyd website, a title we won on 3 consecutive occasions.

 

SHINE ON is a non-profit organisation. Ask the people who work for us, LoL but you know, if you have learned by now that money isn’t everything, then there is little hope! We enjoy playing this music and see it as a challenge to recreate it on demand, to the standards we find acceptable. Holding that same mirror up to our competitors, we feel comfortable knowing we do the job right, and knowing that you know we do the job right.

 

We are ever grateful to everyone who attends the shows and makes it possible for us to continue what we do. We feel honoured that we have such a good reputation amongst the people who matter. That’s you. Thank you.

 

 

ONCE UPON A TIME WE SAW A VERY POOR TRIBUTE TO PINK FLOYD AND DECIDED WE COULD DO IT BETTER.
