The Machine Performs Pink Floyd
Paying tribute to the seminal band Pink Floyd is about more than playing the music. For more than 30 years, The Machine has extended the legacy of Pink Floyd while creating their own legacy and making the songs their own. The New York-based band focuses on making every show an authentic Floydian experience for the fans. The Machine is known for performing 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, while their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays and lighting continues The Floyd spirit 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 – Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet.
The band features founding member Tahrah Cohen (drums) and longtime bandmates Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals) and Ryan Ball (bass, vocals). The band continues on to celebrate the music of Pink Floyd and to honor the life of Joe Pascarell, who co-founded the band with Tahrah in 1988.
The Machine was the first of the Pink Floyd tribute bands and after 30 years, many consider it the best. You’ll wish you were here.
