Oz Pie

To celebrate Mark Sheds birthday tickets were purchased to see the Australian Pink Floyd Show . En route to the Assembly rooms time was made to sample local beverages and Pie. Selected hostelry the Dolphin proved to be an excellent choice. As well as being the oldest pub in Derby, it had some fine beers and some excellent Pie which the birthday boy, shed junior and the Pieman indulged in. Excellent it was too 8.5/10.

The Aussie Floyd were excellent, playing to a packed audience with little chit chat they waded through a comprehensive tour of the Floyd back catalogue utilising a seven piece band and three backing vocalists.

The light show, inflatables, sound, images etc were excellent leading to a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Not having been overly keen on seeing "tribute bands/acts this was an eye opener and fantastic. We liked the
Assembly Rooms as well with a reasonable size, good facilities, sound ok and venue staff good.
