Wish You Were Here — The Sight & Sound Of Pink Floyd “Wish You The Moon” with a benefit for Akron Children’s Hospital Palliative Care Center, celebrating the 45th Anniversary of Dark Side Of The Moon. Performing the landmark 1973 album in its entirety plus Pink Floyd’s greatest hits, classics and obscurities, along with new video, laser and lighting effects, this will be the band's 4th and largest production ever at the Akron Civic, on the same stage that Pink Floyd played in 1972.
Since 2013, Wish You Were Here’s past 3 benefit concerts in conjunction with the Akron Civic Theater have raised over $55,000 for Akron Children’s Hospital and also Cassidy's Hope Foundation. This year's beneficiary, The Akron Children’s Hospital Haslinger Family Pediatric Palliative Care Center, provides care to children, prenatal to young adult, with complex, chronic or serious conditions and their families, enhancing quality of life in partnership with cure-directed care. These organizations also has personal significance to the band.

Formed in 1987 under the moniker of “Harvest Pink Floyd Revue” as one of the first bands in America to tribute Pink Floyd, and evolving in 1995 as Wish You Were Here, the band is one of the longest continually-performing Pink Floyd tribute acts in the world. Its core members have been at the forefront of the tribute band movement, with an unparalleled history of record-breaking concerts and celebrated theater productions throughout Ohio and the Midwest, as the band enters its 23nd year.
Wish You Were Here’s theatrical concert presentation combines Sight and Sound to capture the mood, emotions, and intensity of the Pink Floyd experience. The show utilizes a veteran 9-piece musical ensemble featuring 7 vocalists (with 2 female vocalists) and a Floydian stage production — sound effects and videos on a large circle screen, flying inflatables, theatrical vignettes with props, and a sensational light show with moving lasers, rolling fog and state-of-the-art intelligent lighting — all produced by experienced industry professionals with a fan's obsession for detail. The band authentically recreates the music from Pink Floyd's entire career, performing the crowd favorites that all rock fans recognize, interspersed with the show-stoppers that appease even the most ardent Floyd fanatics.
Wish You Were Here has gained international recognition, in books such as The Rough Guide To Pink Floyd, for its detailed recreations of Pink Floyd’s greatest albums and tours, performing the 1973 Dark Side Of The Moon show on the same stage at Blossom Music Center in 2006, the 1972 tour show at Akron Civic Theatre also on the same stage, and the 1977 Animals tour show at the Nautica Pavilion in Cleveland in July 2005. In 2008 the band staged the most elaborate production of The Wall ever performed by an American Pink Floyd tribute act, at TimeWarner Cable Amphitheater and theaters in Ohio.
