For 26 years, The Machine has forged reputation of excellence, extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, while creating another legacy all their own selling out theaters, large clubs and casinos across North and Central America, Europe and Asia. They have also appeared at renowned music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend, Gathering of the Vibes, Buffalo’s Artpark, and Germany’s Rock of Ages. Additionally, the quartet has shared the stage with full symphony orchestras, including the Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh and San Diego Symphonies.
The New York based band focuses on making every show an authentic experience performing a diverse mix of Pink Floyd’s extensive 15-album repertoire complete with faithful renditions of popular hits as well as obscure gems. The Machine’s stellar musicianship, dramatic lighting and video, and their passionate delivery set them above and beyond the rest. Rolling Stone Magazine once said, “The Machine duplicates the sound and hits of Pink Floyd with chilling accuracy.”
After an almost three-year absence from the band, beloved singer/guitarist Joe Pascarell returned to The Machine as of Sept. 11, 2015. Pascarell is one of the founding members of the band and performed with them for 23 years. His knowledge of the Pink Floyd catalog, as well as his passion for live performance, is unparalleled; his ability to accurately sing both the Waters and Gilmour parts is uncanny.
Founding member drummer Tahrah Cohen says, “We are ecstatic to have him back and we know his fans will want to welcome him at our fall shows.”
With Pascarell resuming his duties on lead guitar and lead vocals, long-time member Ryan Ball resumed duties on bass guitar and vocals after masterfully taking on lead guitar during his absence. The ensemble also includes long-time member Scott Chasolen on keyboards and vocals.
