NORFOLK, VA — What do you get when you combine Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads, and Phish? A hybrid, a fusion of styles, moods, and musical classics in the form of Pink Talking Fish. Brain child of Eric Gould, former founding member of jam band Particle, PTF melds selections from each band (and tosses in a few surprises) in a seamless stream to create a musical story that evolves every single show.


PTF also features Richard James on keyboards, Dave Brunyak on guitar, and Zack Burwick on the drums. You can read our pre-show interview with Zack here:

The show is accompanied with a distinctive laser light experience that creates a mellow, yet danceable vibe for the entire evening.

Her ultimate goal is to successfully present the live music genre as an art form which preserves the expression, emotion, and energy of specific moments in time. ////// GLENN WOODELL spends his musical time working both on and around the stage. He's spent decades behind the lens as a visual artist, and for his career, studied human vision as a scientific researcher. His time on the stage these days is either spent holding on to a bass guitar or a camera.
