El Monstero returns to the Gillioz for another incredible show in 2016! El Monstero is a must see for any Pink Floyd fan. The show is an edgier, more theatrical alternative to other tribute shows that are out there. Every year the band sells out The Pageant in St.Louis for 7 consecutive nights. The photos and youtube videos give you a taste, but you have to experience this show live to fully understand. The music mainly focuses on Gilmore/Waters era Floyd but usually includes some music from other periods of the bands history. Needless to say, it’s an immersive show; while ironic considering The Wall’s themes of isolation, the stage set-up made for a thrilling communal experience.
The line up includes Mark Thomas Quinn (lead vox, guitar, lap steel), Jimmy Griffin (lead vox, guitar), Kevin Gagnepain (bass, vox), Bryan Greene (elec, steel, and nylon guitar) John Pessoni (drums, vox) Bill Reiter (keys, vox) Jake Elking (keys), Dave Farver (sax) and of course the ladies….Erminie Cannon, Tandra Williams, and Mindy Mierek.
Most members of El Monstero have been in bands that were signed to major labels, and they are all top notch players. The band spares no expense on production, hiring the best sound, lighting, visual, pyro, wardrobe, and set design.
