About the band:
This One's Pink brings the sounds and visual elements that have made Pink Floyd's style of music a memorable experience. Songs from The Wall, The Division Bell, Animals, and of course, the number one platinum album, Dark Side of the Moon; This One's Pink plays them all!

A concept brought together by founding members DusDn WaHers (drums) and John McLoughlin (guitarsvocals). After just a few jam sessions and a passion for Pink Floyd's music, they were eventually joined by members Danny Gillman (guitarsvocals), Robbie Robinson (bass guitarvocals), and Paul Benes (keyboardvocals). Collectively they form Central Illinois' premier Pink Floyd tribute experience! Spanning decades of the Pink Floyd catalog, covering some of the greatest rock songs that should be in every music lovers collection.

These guys have done their homework and have the proven chops that can truly bring you a one-of-a-kind experience that few others have been able to achieve.

They have played theater stages, festival stages, including the do...this band has Heart of Illinois fair, The Monarch Music Hall (Peoria), The both.” Canopy Club (Champaign), along with the historic Apollo Theater in Peoria and even the small stage has been drenched in the sights and sounds of this tribute to one of the greatest rock groups in our history.
