This Halloween, The Juantanamos are paying tribute to one of rock’s most iconic albums – Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” with their Halloween Pachanga on Thursday, October 29th at Sam’s Burger Joint. The show promises to be a unique visual and sonic experience you don’t want to miss.
But what would make the band want to tackle such an ambitious goal?
“I think a better question is, ‘why wouldn’t we want to play this album?” says guitarist Ryan Chadek. “We’re very lucky in this band to have such a talented group of players and vocalists, so we thought ‘What can we do that’s going to force us to really step it up, but also just be a hell of a lot of fun for us to play and for people to watch?'”
The band is also bringing in a few special guests to help them re-create the album as faithfully as possible.
So what made them choose this album specifically?
“I think ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ is a pretty monumental album in a lot of peoples’ lives. It’s almost a rite of passage. Lyrically, it addresses topics that anyone can relate to – youth, greed, aging, war, loneliness. Musically, it’s as solid as any album in rock history and has a broad appeal, no matter what age you are.”
Immediately following their performance of “Dark Side of the Moon”, the Halloween Pachanga kicks into high gear as the band launches into a raucous hour of music meant to get the crowd on their feet and moving; featuring more special guest appearances. The Juantanamos wide array of influences will be on display, from classic rock to Motown, as well as a selection of songs from their debut CD “Ghost Tracks”…so be sure to bring your dancing shoes!
