About

We've been rocking like it's 1970's for almost 20 years

Our Story

Darkside was formed way back in 2005 as a result of Andy Baker’s long held passion for all things ‘Floydian’. Its purpose is to bring what it felt like to be in the audience at a 1970s Floyd show and to provide a vehicle for the band to play in interesting and unique venues.

If you like your Floyd as proper, live, rock music, including improvisation, then Darkside will not disappoint… As we like to say, it’s not karaoke Floyd!

How long is the show?

About 3 hours from start to finish, including an interval

Is the show really in quadraphonic?

Pink Floyd where renowned for their sound innovation, including what we would now call surround sound. In most venues, we will be using a full, quadraphonic PA system and many tracks will be played in quad to give that real ‘Floyd’ feel.
