29-12-2011 12:00:00 30-12-2011 12:00:00 America/New_York THE MACHINE performs PINK FLOYD The Machine, America's top Pink Floyd show, has forged a 20-year reputation of excellence, extending the legacy of Pink Floyd while creating another legacy all its 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. The New York-based band focuses on making every show an authentic Floydian experience for the 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 passionate delivery set the band above the rest. In the classic tradition, The Machine explores collective improvisation paralleling and even rivaling that of an early '70s Pink Floyd mentality. The group's use of expanded theatrical elements and elaborate stage displays continues in the spirit of the later Floyd lineups of the '80s. The band is also known for recreating entire albums as part of its show, accepting requests from fans, and taking an A-to-Z approach in which one song is played for every letter of the alphabet. Additionally, the quartet has shared the stage with full symphony orchestras, enhancing and expanding the sonic depth of Pink Floyd. In 2004, The Machine released Two Nights at The Keswick as a DVD/CD, archiving the band's bi-annual residency at this historic Philadelphia venue. The group's next release, Unplugged (2006), captures a special acoustic performance at B.B. King Blues Club in NYC, featuring rare Syd Barrett solo material and deep cuts from early Floyd albums. Live in Amsterdam, a stunning concert DVD filmed at the Pepsi Stage, was released in August of 2008. The band's latest release is The Symphonic Side of the Moon (2011), a live performance of Dark Side of the Moon and "Comfortably Numb" with a symphony orchestra. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=99853 B.B.
