Celebrate 30 years of The Machine, America’s pre-eminent Pink Floyd tribute band, with a special anniversary presentation of three classic albums, played in their entirety: The Dark Side of the Moon Wish You Were Here, Animals and an encore. Featuring the Interstellar Lights.
The Machine performs Pink Floyd, America’s top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 30-year reputation for extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, selling out theaters, premier showcase rooms and casinos across North America, Europe and Asia, performing at renowned music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend and Gathering of the Vibes and sharing the stage with full symphony orchestras, including the Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville and San Diego Symphonies, as well as the Buffalo Philharmonic.
The New York-based quartet performs a diverse mix of The Floyd’s extensive 16-album repertoire, complete with faithful renditions of popular hits as well as obscure gems. With stellar musicianship and passionate delivery, The Machine explores collective improvisation rivaling that of an early 1970s Pink Floyd. Their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays and lighting continues in the spirit of the later Pink Floyd of the 1980s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests from fans and for taking an A to Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet. Special shows include lasers by the same company that provides classic Pink Floyd laser effects for Roger Waters and David Gilmour tours.
The members of The Machine include founding members Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals) and Tahrah Cohen (drums) and long-time band mates Stephen Bard (bass, vocals) and Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals).
