Eclipse welcomes Peter Harvey into the band on bass guitar. Peter comes from a strong rock/pop covers band back ground, however he now feels ready to broaden his musical horizons and has decided to throw himself into Pink Floyd.
Peter is fairly new to Floyd only really getting into them seriously since the Floyd’s monumental performance at Live 8, and as such has enjoyed delving deep into their material as well as the early Pre-Darkside material required to play in Eclipse. He joins at a key time as we’re currently in rehearsal for our up-coming show at Needingworth Village Hall, and his enthusiasm and eagerness to be a part of this project is partially what got him the job. That and his sense of humour.
We’re currently looking for some suitable small’ish venues to play before and after Christmas around the Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, Cambridge area. These shows will give us a chance to “road-test” the material ahead of our larger shows planned for later next year. None of the warm-up shows will include the “bells & whistles” that you’d expect from a Pink Floyd gig like flying pigs, however they will feature lighting etc.
Therefore, these warm-ups will suit a larger pub or club (big enough for a five piece band). If you’re a venue that’s interested in booking the band please contact us via the contact page on this website.
Eclipse are currently looking for a new bass player to join the band. You must be willing to rehearse bi-weekly in Cambridge, have your own transport and equipment and be to a high standard. The successful applicant should be proficient on both fretted and fretless basses, and also be capable of singing (although this is not a deal breaker). Also, please bear in mind that we’re a Pink Floyd tribute band and as such perform material from Floyd’s whole career, not just the later years. We’ve had a number of people apply who have then pulled out later on due to the fact that we also cover Floyds earlier pre-Dark Side material. If you don’t like the early material, please don’t apply.
Auditions will be held in Soham, Cambridgeshire, and each auditionee will have seven songs to learn for the audition. Currently we have two weekends booked for auditions, 6th and 13th October, with one space left on the 6th.
If you’re interested please contact us either via the contact page on this website or via our Facebook page
AUDITIONS ARE NOW CLOSED – 04/10/19
