Blue Floyd are :
Matt Abts – Drums & Percussion (drums with Gov’t Mule & Dickey Betts)
Marc Ford – Guitar & Vocals (guitar with The Black Crowes)
Johnny Neel – Keyboards, Harp & Vocals (keyboards with The Allman Bros.)
Berry Oakley, Jr – Bass & Vocals (bass & vocals with Robby Krieger, Bloodline)
Allen Woody – Bass, Mandolin, 12-String, Steel Guitar & Vocals (bass with Gov’t Mule & Allman Bros. Band)

Through the crucible of a pioneering, improvisational/blues collaboration by an eclectic mix of acclaimed, contemporary musicians – Blue Floyd endeavors to deconstruct the classic compositions of the legendary Pink Floyd, into their primal, elemental form. As much an homage to the influence of Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon and Muddy Waters as a re-discovery of both Floyd classics and rarities, Blue Floyd plays iconoclastically familiar songs, heard again as if for the first time.
Look out for their new album “Begins” which features the original line-up of: Allen Woody, Matt Abts, Marc Ford, Johnny Neel and Berry Oakley.
