The Machine, March 31
The Machine started out in the bohemian village of Nyack, NY in 1987. Soon after, fans enthusiastically called for more Floyd, there was no turning back and the Machine quickly developed a reputation for recreating the sound of vintage Pink Floyd, right down to the extended psychedelic fans. Along with their continued and growing success, The Machine's greatest thrill to date has been the number of venues that immediately request their return and the new fans who instantly fall in love with the band. Drummer Todd Cohen stated, "It's always a thrill to discover that many of our fans weren't fans of Pink Floyd until after they saw The Machine."
The Machine has played over one thousand shows to an estimated audience of over half a million people. They regularly tour the East coast of the United States hitting some of America's best-known rock clubs, colleges and theaters everywhere. They have played large outdoor rock festivals both here at home and overseas. The Machine has been featured in "The Amazing Pudding," a Pink Floyd monthly published in England and distributed throughout Europe and the U.S., the Roger Waters fanzine as well as P.U.L.S.E., a German music magazine. In addition, they were interviewed by The New York Times for an article illuminating successful tribute bands, as well as featured in Gig Magazine. Anyone who has had the privilege of seeing The Machine can attest to their stunning level of musicianship and their flare for capturing the spirit and feeling of Pink Floyd.
