Kung Fu hosted their 7th annual Toys For Tots charity concert at Toad’s Place in New Haven, Connecticut on Saturday. The evening saw the hosts joined by Pink Talking Fish and members of Turkuaz for a performance that honored the music of David Bowie and Prince.

Pink Talking Fish kicked things off with a set featuring their typical blend of Pink Floyd, Phish and Talking Heads covers, showcasing each band by opening with “In The Flesh,” “Rift” and “Wild Wild Life.” Turkuaz vocalists Sammi Garett and Shira Elias joined in mid-set on Pink Floyd’s “Great Gig In the Sky” and Talking Heads offshoot Tom Tom Club’s “Genius Of Love.” PTF closed out their appearance with a rendition of Phish’s “Divided Sky” that fit Floyd’s “Fearless” within.

Garett and Elias also participated in Kung Fu’s first set, helping close it out by adding vocals to “Daddy D” and The B-52s “Love Shack.” Kung Fu and Pink Talking Fish then came together for the Pink Talking Fu tribute to David Bowie and Prince that began with the pair of acts picking up on a “Love Shack” jam before transitioning into The Purple One’s “1999.” Elsewhere in the set Bowie’s “Fame,” his Queen collaboration “Under Pressure” and “Let’s Dance” were woven between Prince’s “Kiss,” “I Wanna Be Your Lover” and “Purple Rain” as Garrett and Elias jumped into the action.
