More than just a flawless recreation of the legendary songs that spanned decades in their appeal. The Pink Floyd Experience echoes everything that made Pink Floyd one of rock & roll’s greatest icons, from the unforgettable hits (“Money,” “Another Brick in the Wall”) to the 200,000 watt light show, full quadraphonic sound and special effects.
Tom Quinn: Band leader, lead guitarist, and relentless crusader for all things "Pink Floyd". In 1973, The Dark Side Of The Moon was released. That same year Tom bought his first guitar, and started his first band. From day one, his chief mentor was David Gilmour. Tom also cites Joe Walsh and Leslie West as big influences on his playing. He dates the musical roots of PFX back to 1994, and Pink Floyd's Division Bell tour stop in San Diego. The band hit the stage in April 1995, and went on to garner many San Diego Music Awards from 1999 to 2003.
Gus Beaudoin was born on May 3, 1952, and started playing bass guitar at age 13.

Gus has toured across the United States and Canada playing many styles of music, including rock, country, jazz, disco, and classical. Gus and Tom Quinn joined up in 1997 and started playing Floyd music anywhere someone would let them set-up their equipment, out of pure love for the music of Pink Floyd.
