Mel will use the opportunity to showcase some of his original work at the end of the show in the second half. (The River Symphony) Mel has always acknowledged that Pink Floyd has had a big influence on his music career, with their influence being evident in both his writing and style of playing and can be seen in Mel’s original works; “David’s Confession” and in “Flight of Bird” on and he has been in his element while collaborating with Richard Nosworthy to bring “Crazy Diamond” to the stage. This is a second collaboration between this talented pair, the first being “Flight of Bird” which was directed by Nosworthy and starred Botes.
Mel says “This production has been a big challenge for me and a very valuable learning curve. It’s been a wonderful opportunity to use everything I’ve learned about playing music over 30 years to help me interpret Pink Floyd’s”.
