revnation_logoFacebook_logoiTunes_logosoundclick_logoTwitter_logoJames Hollingsworth's NIGHTS

It all began with Pink Floyd Night, a special occasional event celebrating the music of Pink Floyd, performed by acclaimed singer/guitarist James Hollingsworth, also featuring some of his own songs, which has been wowing audiences throughout the UK.

And now there's also Psych-Rock Night! - It's Live but it's Loops, but it's Prog but it's Psych-Folk - but it's Rock! It's classics and originals from singer/guitarist James Hollingsworth. Including the music of, probably Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Genesis, Tori Amos, Jeff Buckley, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Hawkwind, Gong, Marillion, Steve Hillage, Bowie; The Doors; Jethro Tull; Roy Harper and possibly more!

In an all-live uniquely solo show James uses modern Looping technology with real instruments - live percussion, voice, harmonica and guitar effects - to build complex arrangements in real time. No pre-recorded backing tracks are used.

This show is a must for all lovers of live music - whether you're a fan of Pink Floyd or not!

Contact James to book him for your event (check for availability) or see below for future events.

Pink Floyd Night History

James has been playing Wish You Were Here and Fearless from Pink Floyd's Meddle album for donkeys' years, in fact they were among the very few covers that he had in his early repertoire. As years went by
James  began to focus on learning more covers to help engage his new audiences, and turned to classics like Breathe, from Dark Side of the Moon, often segueing this with Nothing Else Matters (Metallica), and then after gradually adding Time and Great Gig in the Sky, he found himself halfway through the whole album.

A slew of gigs at The Prince of Wales, Shrivenham led to hosts Mike and Jane urging James to learn the remaining songs of Dark Side of the Moon for what was intended to be a one-off event at their pub on 15 May 2009, which, in addition to all of "Dark Side...", this first 'Floyd Night' also included Wish You Were Here (of course), Fearless, A Pillow of Winds, One of these Days as well as some of James' own songs. It was a well-attended and superbly rocking night.

So, mightily encouraged by the great success of this event, James gradually expanded his repertoire of Pink Floyd songs, played a bunch more 'Floyd Nights' and with his investment into Live Looping with a Boomerang III Phrase Sampler in 2011 he was able to make full use of his trusty Korg multi-effects pedals to augment his interpretation of Dark Side..., and even attempt the epic Echoes, which remains a staple of James' Pink Floyd Night show to this day.

In 2017 James added more songs, upgraded his Korg multi-effects, added the Boomerang Side-Car to make full use of his Looper, and expanded his sound canvas to include stick and mallet struck percussion.
