Just Floyd

Maidstone-based Just Floyd are a five piece outfit who pride themselves on capturing the sound and feel that is the magic of Pink Floyd. They have a lightness and relaxed authenticity to their performance that is often commented on and commended - and feels closer to the original spirit of Pink Floyd than some of the robotic, studio performances typical of many tribute bands. There is an edge to this band's sound - live music at its best. It's no surprise that the current line-up has been described as 'the most authentic live Pink Floyd tribute'. Yet despite this accolade, the band do not proclaim to be an imitation - you'll see no stage theatrics, costumes or acting; and no 'original', unreliable 1970's equipment! Just Floyd is about the music of Pink Floyd. Playing around the UK, with the occasional excursion into Europe, notable gigs include the Blue Room at London's O2 Arena for Roger Waters' Saturday performance of 'The Wall', the ope...

What people say about Canterbury Function & Wedding Bands:

We hired Hallelujah Junction to play at our outdoor BBQ in the summer and they just took the roof off the place and blew us all away. They provided 2 hours of red hot blues music and it was surprising how many tunes we all knew, nonetheless it was great music and made people get up and dance. They cahps in the band were engaging and the lead guitar work was nothing short of staggering. A brilliant band, not your usual "run of the mill" covers outfit and they even played half an hour over the allotted time to keep us all dancing through the night - Highly Recommended!
