Overview of Nick Mason’s Band
In the rich tapestry of Pink Floyd’s history, one might argue that their initial, psychedelic phase is often overshadowed by their later, more commercially successful albums. Addressing this imbalance, Nick Mason, the venerable drummer and the only member to have been consistently part of Pink Floyd since its inception, formed “Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets” in 2018.
Unlike the stadium-filling tours of Roger Waters or David Gilmour’s solo ventures, Mason’s outfit deliberately steers clear of the more mainstream anthems. Instead, the band delves deep into the Syd Barrett era, performing tracks from the first two Pink Floyd albums, “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn” and “A Saucerful of Secrets“, among other early gems. It’s a treasure trove for die-hard fans, providing a rare chance to experience live renditions of tracks that haven’t been performed in over half a century. The Saucerful of Secrets Tour 2023 has been epic.

The band, consisting of Nick Mason alongside Gary Kemp of Spandau Ballet on vocals and guitar, Lee Harris from the Blockheads on guitar, Guy Pratt on bass and vocals (who previously toured with Pink Floyd in the post-Waters era), and Dom Beken on keyboards, has an authentic chemistry. They don’t simply reproduce the songs; they breathe a new vitality into them, respecting the original spirit while adding their own subtle nuances.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets is more than just a tribute to Pink Floyd’s early days. It’s a testament to the timeless nature of the music and a heartfelt homage to the genius of Syd Barrett. For both seasoned Pink Floyd enthusiasts and newcomers to their early work, Mason’s ensemble offers a magical journey back to the roots of one of the most influential bands in rock history.
