THE MACHINE, America’s top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 25 year reputation of excellence, extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, while creating another legacy all their own. Over the years, The Machine has touched the hearts and souls of many, 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.
The New York based band focuses on making every show an authentic Floydian experience for their fans. Known for performing a diverse mix of The Floyd’s extensive 16 album repertoire (complete with faithful renditions of well known hits as well as obscure gems), The Machine’s stellar musicianship, dramatic lighting and video, and their passionate delivery sets them above and beyond the rest.
In the classic tradition, The Machine explores collective improvisation paralleling and even rivaling that of an early 1970’s Pink Floyd mentality. Their use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays continues in the spirit of the later Floyd lineups of the 1980’s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as a part of their show, accepting requests…
The Machine, America’s top live Pink Floyd show, will perform backed by The Alabama Symphony Orchestra at The Alabama Theatre on Saturday, May 7th at 8:00 P.M. Tickets are $29.50-$62.50. This is open to patrons of all ages. For more information call 205-975-2787 or visit the event page.
The orchestra will be led by Christopher Confessore, Resident Conductor and Principal Pops Conductor of The Alabama Symphony Orchestra. The program will include three sets: the first is a diverse mix of Pink Floyd’s extensive repertoire; the second being Wish You Were Here in its entirety; and the third will be an extended encore with just The Machine. Additionally, Lightwave International, the laser company utilized by Roger Waters, will duplicate the classic Pink Floyd concert experience.
Confessore comments, “Last year’s sold out performance by the ASO and The Machine was one of the highlights of the season! The atmospheric instrumentals that are such a huge part of the Pink Floyd sound match perfectly with a symphony orchestra. Add a spectacular laser show and you have a truly unique collaboration, and a concert that folks will NOT want to miss!”
The members of The Machine include: Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals), Tahrah Cohen…
