A GROUP of Albany dancers will take part in the upcoming Echoes of Pink Floyd tribute concert when it rolls into town on July 6.

Students from Twilight Dreams will form the Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 choir and sing alongside the tribute band during the chorus of the song.

Twilight Dreams owner Anyes Icher said her dancers were excited to participate in the performance.

“I think they chose dance students rather than singing or music students because my dance students are motivated to be theatrical,” she said.

“And that’s what they [tribute band] want – they want drama and a bit of attitude.”

The Pink Floyd tribute concert will feature the entirety of the original band’s iconic album The Wall, and be headlined by singer Matt Goodluck, guitarist Daniel Hunter, drummer Jason Miller, bassist Mark Dole, Paul Bindig on keyboards and synthesisers, and Mark MacNab on rhythm and acoustic guitar.

Hunter said each member of the band loved and respected what the original Pink Floyd gave to the world with their music.

“We want to bring this to life for the audience who may not have had a chance to experience a Pink Floyd concert, or wish to relive memories from their youth,” he said.

“We aim to ensure every aspect of the original Pink Floyd music is captured authentically.”

Echoes of Pink Floyd will perform The Wall tribute concert on July 6 at the Albany Entertainment Centre.

Tickets are available online or at the entertainment centre’s box offic
