Join The Machine as they return to SOPAC to perform Pink Floyd’s iconic Dark Side of the Moon album in its entirety, complete with special guests Jon Thompson on sax and Abby Ahmad on vocals.

The Machine has forged a thirty-year reputation of extending the musical legacy of Pink Floyd. The 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 1970’s Pink Floyd.  Their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays and lighting continues The Floyd spirit of the 1980’s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests from fans, and using the A – Z method to play one song from The Floyd’s repertoire for each letter of the alphabet.

The Machine look nothing like Pink Floyd, but that doesn’t matter—they sound exactly like Pink Floyd, and that’s what counts

The band features founding member Tahrah Cohen (drums), longtime bandmates Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals), and Ryan Ball (guitar, vocals), and newest member Chris DeAngelis (bass, lead vocals). The band continues on to celebrate the music of Pink Floyd and to honor the life of Joe Pascarell, who co-founded The Machine with Tahrah in 1988.

Experience The Machine (and Pink Floyd!) in all their glory at SOPAC!
