Baldwinsville Hailed for their “chilling accuracy” by Rolling Stone, The Machine brings the music of Pink Floyd to Paper Mill Island this Saturday.
For more than 23 years, The Machine has perpetuated Pink Floyd’s legacy through a multi-dimensional approach, faithfully recreating its timeless music. Significant use of expanded theatrical elements prevalent in Pink Floyd’s elaborate stage displays such as spectacular state-of-the-art lighting, multimedia accompaniments and impeccable sound, result in strikingly faithful interpretations giving the band a reputation for excellence and creating an intimate connection with their loyal audience.
Their live show most often presents a cross-section of the 16-album repertoire that Pink Floyd amassed during their 30-year tenure as pioneers of experimental rock. On occasion the band performs Pink Floyd albums in their entirety including Dark Side of The Moon in sync with the film "The Wizard of Oz" as well as the film version of The Wall, pleasing the most die-hard of fans. Their show is nothing less than a full out musical experience that’s not to be missed.
The Machine has performed at Bonnaroo, Musikfest and all across Europe. In the last couple of years, the band has been backed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Delaware Symphony Orchestra, San Diego Symphony Orchestra, Richmond Symphony Orchestra and more.
The members of The Machine include founding members Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals) and Tahrah Cohen (drums) with long time stage mates Ryan Ball (bass, vocals) and Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals).
