Signs of Life declared "Best Tribute Band" by Cincinnati Magazine
"A Tribute Band's work is admittedly more interpretative than creative, but done well it can also but a lot of fun. Long-time genre veteran Jon Stankorb's current project, Signs of Life, pays nearly pitch perfect homage to Pink Floyd. If you squint a little, Stankorb looks vaguely like David Gilmour. More to the point: If you close your eyes (though we don't recommend it: you would miss the spectacular light show), your ears might tell you that it's 1979."
Signs of Life : The Essence of Pink Floyd faithfully captures the music, emotion and excitement of a Pink Floyd concert. The group features eight incredible musicians and a top-notch production team dedicated to reproducing the vast and spacious Pink Floyd sound. Arguably one of the best tributes anywhere, Signs of Life shows feature authentic music, sound effects, lighting and video to recreate the essence of Pink Floyd. Setlists encompass hits and rarities spanning every Floyd album – played live with remarkable reverence and power. Concert-goers will never see the same show twice.
"In the realm of 'Tribute Bands', those those who line up to play Beatles, Queen and Jimmy Buffet songs are a dime a dozen. Signs of Life is not one of those bands. After 2 years playing shows to packed houses in the Queen City, they've managed to impress the legions of Pink Floyd fans who are known to be sticklers for accuracy. Other Pink Floyd Tribute bands tend to treat the Pink Floyd material with an American rock 'n roll style... walking to the edge of the stage and throwing their heads back in mock ecstasy. It loses some of the British restraint and sophistication. According to Stankorb, "we don't want to call attention to ourselves, we want the music and stage show to speak for itself".
