The Australian Pink Floyd Show

Chris Barnes


Chris has worked as a musician since 1992 with many bands throughout the UK, Europe and Asia playing classic rock and pop.

He studied music at University Of Salford whilst fronting his original band Automatic who gigged around the UK and released several EP's. More recently he moved into the world of tribute acts working with tributes bands to The Shadows, The Beatles, John Lennon, Elvis Presley and ABBA. He also worked with Pink Floyd tributes Breathe and The Floyd Sound touring India four times playing to thousands at many college festivals.

In 2010 Chris founded the children’s music workshop Rock Street that indirectly became his introduction to the Aussie Floyd. The daughter of drummer Paul Bonney was a Rock Street student and Paul helped to arrange for the kids to sing "Another Brick In The Wall" with the band at their concerts in Manchester.

Over the years Chris has seen the band many times, he and his wife even had their first date at an Aussie Floyd gig in 1999 so he is thrilled to be onboard as their vocalist.

Chris became a fan of Pink Floyd after hearing the Relics album as a child but it was watching the Live at Pompeii film that blew his mind and he led to him becoming an avid collector of their bootleg recordings.
