AkashA is a 7-piece Malaysian band, playing music straight from the heart. Call it World Fusion Music, but it’s more than that. Like Malaysia itself, AkashA is a fusion of four cultures - Malay, Indian, Chinese, and Western.
Disraeli Gears (USA)
Disraeli Gears does not consider themselves a ‘Tribute Band’. They assure you, however, that you will have no problem recognizing the music that astounded and thrilled audiences everywhere from 1966 to their 2005 performances at Royal Albert Hall and Madison Square Gardens for the short re-union concert series.
The New Machine plays Pink Floyd (UK)
The New Machine plays Pink Floyd was formed by guitarist Mark Emery in 1999. Mark had been featuring some Pink Floyd songs in an earlier band and the response was always very strong. Mark was credited with capturing that Pink Floyd feel.

The blues rockers from Norway are back - five seasoned, colorful musicians with extensive backgrounds that know how to have a good time on stage.
