Adam Basterfield is the man that made Pigs possible. His organ work, delicate piano playing, and encyclopedic knowledge of all things Floyd make him the perfect Richard Wright – and his soft-spoken demeanor doesn’t hurt. Adam understands how to wring every drop from each of the many keyboards he uses on stage and knows how to play even the most obscure Floyd tunes.
Mike Quirke comes from a long tradition of jam bands and is a constant crowd-pleaser with roto-tom solos and dead accurate playing. He is the perfect mix of relaxed confidence and positively German precision. Mike sounds more like Nick Mason than the real thing these days.
Unknown to few besides the most hardcore Floyd fans, excellent English guitarist Snowy White acted as the Floyd’s fifth man on their tours for Animals and The Wall, and still plays with Roger Waters to this day. Jon Baglo fills this challenging role in Pigs: a part which requires him to be adept at playing electric guitar, bass, and occasionally even keyboards. A talented young man with his goldtop and AC30, Jon can play just about anything under the sun and rarely breaks a sweat as he helps us create the most accurate Floydian sounds possible.
Anneda (Char Birkbeck) is a popular Canadian singer-songwriter in her own right and is also PIGS’ incredibly talented backup singer. She brings to life the Clare Torry version of “Great Gig in the Sky” at every show and her performance has been praised for sounding remarkably like the original. Anneda doesn’t portray one single singer the way the rest of the PIGS members do, but rather represents the very best of everything the Floyd’s singers had to offer. Her magical live performance is a ‘must-see’.
“Anneda is so close to Clare Torry that if you closed your eyes, it was the British singer best known for performing the wordless vocals on the song The Great Gig in the Sky from The Dark Side of the Moon in 1973.” – Kelowna Daily Courier
