Press release from Michelle Roche Media Relations:
The Machine, a live Pink Floyd show, will perform at Legends at Appalachian State on Thursday, March 22nd at 10:00 PM. Tickets are $8.00 in advance and for students and $10.00 day of show and for guests.
For over 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 sixteen-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, DelawareSymphony Orchestra, San Diego Symphony Orchestra, Richmond Symphony Orchestra and more!

Hailed for their “chilling accuracy” by Rolling Stone, Spin Magazine praises that The Machine “sound exactly like Pink Floyd,” while The Village Voice declares that “The Machine is dead-on.” The adoration continues from Bob Ezrin, the co-producer of Pink Floyd’s seminal album The Wall, “these guys are great!” As Guitar One Magazine notes, “…you know you’ve got it going on when you sell out BB King’s in New York City and Roger Water’s sax player jams with you.” The New York Times, Washington Post, and Philadelphia Inquirer have all chimed in on the precision performances of The Machine.
The Machine has several releases available that capture their intense live show. Two Nights at the Keswick, from their 2003 performances, is a live concert CD and DVD; The Machine Unplugged is an acoustic performance recorded at BB King’s in New York City; and the Live In Amsterdam DVD.
The band’s most current release is THE MACHINE: SYMPHONIC SIDE OF THE MOON, a recording of a live performance of Dark Side Of The Moon with symphony orchestra.
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).
