THE MACHINE, America's BEST live Pink Floyd show, will perform at the Weinberg Center for The Arts in Frederick on Saturday, October 24th at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $20.00-$30.00. Hotel packages available. More info: www.weinbergcenter.org.
For over 20 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 Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Delaware Symphony Orchestra the San Diego 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; audio and visual proof that The Machine has perfected every vocal nuance, guitar riff, and improvisational delight that Pink Floyd wowed their audiences with for decades. The Machine Unplugged is an acoustic performance recorded at BB King’s in New York City, bringing to light some of the best of Pink Floyd and rarely played gems from the late Syd Barrett. The band’s latest release is the Live In Amsterdam DVD.
