Pink Talking Fish

Pink Talking Fish is a Hybrid Tribute Fusion Act that takes the music from three of the world's most beloved bands and creates a special treat for fans of the music.

Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads and Phish are all more than just bands... they are Phenomenons.  Their creations have artistically inspired people and their mind-blowing live performances have brought people together to form a special sense of community around the love for their favorite band.

Although the music from each act is different, Pink Talking Fish has discovered that fusing the material together creates an amazing story.  The epic emotion of Pink Floyd.... The funky, danceable layerings of The Talking Heads.... The multitude of styles, unique compositional structures and pure fun of Phish.... to merge these three into one gives music lovers a special experience.

Pink Talking Fish features Eric Gould on bass, Richard James on keyboards, Zack Burwick on drums and Dave Brunyak on guitar.  This is a band created by musicians who love the music of these acts.  It's purpose is to heighten people's passion for this music by creating something fresh and exciting for fans.  

Discovering connections is part of the fun:  Pink Floyd's "On The Run" seamlessly fitting in the middle of the composition of Phish's "You Enjoy Myself".  Perfectly placing Phish's "Sand" into the groove of The Talking Head's "Slippery People".  Segued collections from all three acts such as Run Like Hell > Making Flippy Floppy > Piper > Run Like Hell or Mike's Song > Have A Cigar > Once In A Lifetime > Weekapaug Groove.  These ideas are the spirit behind Pink Talking Fish.

The story is ever evolving.  The experience is always exciting.  Come join Pink Talking Fish for the ultimate fusion tribute and celebrate the love of this music in unique fashion.


Blending electro-funk, gritty psychedelic rock, and infectious vocal melodies, Staycation's eclectic sound reflects the diversity of their hometown Washington, D.C. In Fall 2017, the group released their explosive debut EP, Escape Plan, which was independently recorded, produced, and mixed at Mystery Ton Studios by Kenny Eaton (Scale the Summit, Exist), and mastered at BIAS Studios by Mike Monseur (Pasadena, John Jennings). Critics dug it, with outlets such as DC Music Review saying the album “masterfully fuses heavy-hitting riffs with electro grooves, smooth horns, and lyrics evoking hints of sci-fi and soul.” The band is following up Escape Plan with a live album, due out Summer 2018.

Known for their explosive live shows, Staycation has played many of the mid-Atlantic's flagship venues, including the 9:30 Club, U Street Music Hall, the 8x10, and Baltimore Soundstage, and made festival appearances at All Good Festival and Camp Barefoot, among others. The band has shared stages with heavyweights such as Lotus, Steve Kimock, Vinnnie Amico (moe.), Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo's Almost Dead/Brothers Past), Jen Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), Holly Bowling, Zack Deputy, and the Heavy Pets.

Staycation is David Ray (drums/vocals), Neel Singh (bass), and Nikhel Sus (vocals/guitar), along with featured players Zack Be (keys/vocals), Tula Pisano (vocals), and Will Sautter (sax).
