THE MACHINE PERFORMS PINK FLOYD

Tuesday, February 11, 8 p.m.

Tickets on Sale Friday, December 6 at Noon

Tickets start at $49 (inclusive of fees)

Produced by Brevard Music Group

THE MACHINE, America's top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 30-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, premier rock 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 popular 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 early 1970's Pink Floyd. Their use of 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 from fans, and for taking an A to Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet. Additionally, the quartet has been sharing the stage with full symphony orchestras, including the Buffalo, Charlotte, Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh and San Diego Symphonies.

The members of The Machine include founding members Joe Pascarell (guitar, vocals) and Tahrah Cohen (drums), long time stagemate Scott Chasolen (keys, vocals), and the newest addition to the band, Dylan Kelehan (bass, vocals).

They are not a tribute act. They are not the former cast of a Broadway musical. They are the actual artists who helped rocket so many songs to the top of the Billboard charts.

They are: keyboardist and group founder Lee Shapiro, lead guitarist/vocalist Jimmy Ryan, bassist/vocalist Jeff Ganz, keyboardist, percussionist & vocalist Russ Velazquez and drummer and vocalist, Steve Murphy. You may not know their names, but you went to their concerts, heard them on the radio, watched them on TV, and bought their records. They have appeared on over eighty-five albums, won multiple Gold and Platinum Recording Awards, Emmy nominations, Telly Awards, Clio Awards and more.

Since coming together in November 2010, this incomparable quintet has made their legacy of number one hits come to life like no other group. The reason is simple. The Hit Men are extraordinary players and singers as well as world-class entertainers, but most importantly, they were there when these songs were recorded, and they have the backstage, insider stories to prove it. The Hit Men credentials, showmanship and sheer talent are unmatched by any other group in modern music. They deliver sizzling shows that combine hit after hit after hit with eye-popping videos and reminiscences born from their witnessing and making musical history.
