Backtrackin'   Pink Floyd tribute band  -  Athens/GR

Backtrackin’ was formed in Agia Paraskevi (Athens/Greece), in January 1995. Yannis “Fenderias” Papadantonakis (gt, voc), Kostis Kafousias (b, voc) and Mike Drakakakis (dr, voc) formed a classic rock cover band, in order to be able to play their all-time favorite music, the classic rock of the 60's and 70's.

Through the years, and during countless gigs in main Athens area, they covered a very wide area of classic rock tunes. Then, in 2006 they started working on tributes of certain bands of the 70's, always going very deep on each band's sound & style, and cooperating with guest musicians on some of these. Backtrackin’ have performed tributes on Thin Lizzy, Bad Company, Rory Gallagher, Gary Moore (80's only), dIRE Straits, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin & Jethro Tull.

Finally, since May 2012, with the contribution of well known musician George Lagogiannis (keys, voc), Backtrackin’ are performing exclusively as a Pink Floyd® tribute band, which was already a long time dream of every band member, long before even they first met each other!
The main idea was (and is) to recreate the Pink Floyd® sound of the 70's, when PF performed as a four-man band. Main influences are the legendary "Live at Pompeii" concert and the "Animals" album. However, the song range in their repertoire goes from the very first PF period, up to the post-Wall period, including also tunes from personal albums of the PF members.


To achieve all this, and in order to offer high quality performances, Backtrackin’ have also assigned top cooperators for specific tasks.
