Was McNally Waters any relation to Roger? So jealous you saw Nick live!
Looking forward to pictures, videos, reviews everything you get from tonight!
Probably not even finished by time I made this post in the north west of the country.

McNally Waters is the band name and, on stage, comprises Larry John McNally (vocalist from Los Angeles), Harry Waters on keyboards, Federico Palmolella on Bass and Jorge Araujo on Drums. Spoke to Larry and Harry, got the album signed and shook the hand of Harry ... he was surprisingly talkative and seemed at ease.

My undetstanding is McNally Waters are to be the support on all the UK dates.

I think that I was standing next to you with my wife when you got your CD signed ...

McNally Waters is on Spotify. Harry's keyboards sound great, adding nice jazzy touches to the songs in places.

Sounds quite nice. Not full of big hooks, but laid back and entirely listenable. While it doesn't sound Floydish at all, it's the kind of music that I could easily imagine Floyd fans enjoying.

To my ear Larry John McNally's vocals sound a bit like Kevin Godley from 10cc.

Thanks for the recap. I will try to check out McNally Waters sometime.

Was there anything from the Nick Mason set that surprised you?

Not that I remember, the same links between tracks, the same gags and the same stories.

How many times have you seen them before?

I don't like it when I see a band multiple times, and there isn't much unique about the subsequent show.

Whether it's a few different songs, or a few new stories, I want something to differentiate it.
