The Machine plays Pink Floyd music like nobody's business and on October 30, 2009, BB King's was sold out. The place was rockin’ as the leader, Joe Pascarell, played a mind blowing electric guitar. A fan was heard saying, “that’s a bad ass drummer” referring to Todd Cohen’s awesome performance. With Ryan Ball playing bass guitar and Scott Chasolen on the keyboard, the band performed stunning instrumental renditions of Pink Floyd’s rock ballads bringing the crowd to their feet (those who weren't already standing).

The Machine flawlessly recreated Pink Floyd’s innovative music, rocking’ their faces off to the cool sounds originally played by Floyd in the ‘70’s and 80’s.
If you closed your eyes, the montage of guitar rock and changing colors made you feel like Pink Floyd was right there! The Machine’s stellar rock & roll extravaganza at B.B. King, that Friday, was a psychedelic vision of color and light!

Even if you’re not sure who Pink Floyd was, you should get to know The Machine. They capture the legacy of the Pink Floyd, while creating a legacy of their own. Since Joe Pascarell and Todd Cohen created The Machine twenty-one years ago, the band has attracted a large following of young urban hipsters who “dig” their wildly exciting rock & roll sounds. According to Joe Pascarel, The Machine has been selling out at large clubs and theatres in NYC and “…everywhere East of The Mississippi and up and down the West Coast.”
