I spent the evening in a crowd of fans listening to two incredible bands share a stage in Wantagh, NY – Jones Beach Theater. They performed their own songs with such intense and incredible talent that even those who were not “fans” had to appreciate their musical abilities.
Dark Side of the Mule is what Gov’t Mule calls their album that is chock full of Pink Floyd covers from Dark Side of the Moon. Played with such precision and such passion, Gov’t Mule hit every note perfectly, timed every lyric seamlessly, and gave every minute detail the attention it deserved. Watching them perform these songs was a great pleasure of mine having not been able to see Pink Floyd live in concert. The joy in the crowd and in my small group of family and friends was immeasurable.
With this, I stood behind a father and son for the entire evening and watched as they enjoyed the songs. Dad, clearly a Pink Floyd fan from his youth – Son, clearly a fan of his Dad.
They enjoyed the show together and more importantly, enjoyed each other’s company. Seeing Dad share his passion for the music of an iconic band, a piece of his history, with his Son…
This made me smile. : )
