Professors, students return to ‘Dark Side’ for Nov. 19 benefit

The Pink Floyd tribute band Us & Them takes the Bluesboro stage on Murfreesboro’s Public Square on Saturday, Nov. 19, to perform the best-selling album “Dark Side of the Moon.”

Admission for the 8 p.m. show is $8 per person, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit scholarships for MTSU’s Department of Recording Industry.

Us & Them includes MTSU recording-industry professors Bill Crabtree and Cosette Collier and engineer Dale Brown and Computer Information Systems professor Amy Hennington, along with graduate student Matt Leigh. Us & Them also features Steve Holeman, John Nichols, Stacey Lee and Candace Warner, and recording-industry majors Taylor Bray and Jeff Braun will mix the performance.

The idea to perform “Dark Side of the Moon,” Pink Floyd’s most commercially successful album, arose during rehearsals for a cover band called 2nd & Vine. That group includes several Us & Them members and is scheduled to open for Us & Them on Saturday night.

Us & Them’s debut in fall 2010 at a benefit performance for Autism Speaks netted almost $2,000 from a packed house as well as a standing ovation.

“Dark Side of the Moon,” which has sold more than 15 million copies in the United States alone, spawned two singles, “Money” and “Us and Them.”
