Have a Cigar
Genre: Covers | Standards
Sound description: Sounds a lot like Pink Floyd.
RIYL: Pink Floyd
Inception: Encinitas, 2008
Influences: Pink Floyd
Have a Cigar started out as a tribute band in the truest sense, paying homage to fallen Pink Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright in late 2008 at several local open mic sessions.
Drawing from the many phases of the Floyd catalog, Have a Cigar plays note-for-note versions of Floyd classics, as well as using the experimental nature of the band as inspiration to unleash their own creative talents in the spirit of the Floyd.
Expanding to include saxophone and female vocals in 2010, the band is fronted by Casey Della Vecchia, singing parts originally recorded by both Roger Waters and David Gilmour.
