One of the best tribute bands in the biz returns to the Belly Up Aspen this Friday. Dead Floyd stands as a high-energy, modern-meshing of two of the greatest American rock bands the world has ever known. Their passion for both bands has inspired Dead Floyd to recreate early favorites as well as timeless classics in ways that no other tribute band has the capacity to achieve.
Thrusting ageless tunes of days-gone-by back into the limelight and packing dance floors around the country, Dead Floyd guarantees a musical time warp into the height of the dead era.
Dead Floyd is not like most tribute bands. Most tribute bands are notorious for belting overly dramatized versions of songs you thought you loved into cringe-worthy spinoffs that feel loosely related to the original. Dead Floyd’s attention to detail and professional musicianship set them apart from the status quo and continuously allow them to sell out venues from coast to coast.
Their improvisation, as well as the depth of tracks that defined both legendary acts’ live shows 40 years ago, has now allowed Dead Floyd almost endless possibilities for their own show today. From “Shakedown Street” and “Comfortably Numb” to “Scarlet Begonias” and “Another Brick In The Wall,” Dead Floyd has a little something for every classic rock fan. The four best friends are also consistently voted as one of Colorado’s best tribute bands year after year.
Frontman Charlie Humphreys (guitar and vocals) is joined by Josh Miller (bass and vocals), Stu Crair (drums and vocals) and Matt Goldberg (keys and synth).
They have performed more than 1,000 shows together at some of the nation’s most prestigious venues, including The Fox Theatre, The Orpheum, Mishawaka Amphitheater and more. Belly Up is a longstanding favorite of the band, having visited Aspen for the past nine years to grace the stage with their near-perfect renditions of American favorites.
As Dead Floyd makes its return to our intimate mountain venue, don’t miss your chance to take a trip back in time through some of the greatest classic rock songs ever written. Always remember, as Jerry told us, “Once in awhile you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.”
Grab your tickets at the door, or at bellyupaspen.com for $10. Show time is 10 p.m., ages 18 and up.
