The Purple Xperience Brings Nostalgia Back to the PAC

Fans can relive the magic of Prince and the Revolution when The Purple Xperience comes to the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University - Tuscarawas on November 6 at 7:30 p.m.

The Purple Xperience is a five-piece group hailing from Prince’s birthplace, Minneapolis, MN.  They have been touring around the country since their inception in 2011 by Dr. Fink and front-man Marshall Charloff – bringing the greatest and most authentic production of Prince and The Revolution in the world to audiences of all generations.

Lead singer, Marshall Charloff, styles the magic of Prince’s talent in an uncannily unmatched fashion with his appearance, vocal imitation, and multi-instrumental capacity on guitar and piano. Marshall recorded with Prince on the album 94 East, (where Marshall plays both keyboards and bass guitar and Prince is on lead vocals). Pepe Willie, who discovered Marshall, was also responsible for getting Prince’s career up and running. In 2009, Marshall teamed up with Doctor Fink from Prince and the Revolution and Pepe Willie from the band 94 East to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame benefit concert.

Marshall Charloff’s band, The Purple Xperience, hosts a number of world-class players, including: Tracey Blake on Lead guitar (played with New Power generation, Sons of Almighty featuring members of NPG, Tracey Blake Project and Westside), Ron Long on Bass guitar (played with Christina Aguilera, The Backstreet Boys, 98°, also recorded with John L, Larry Blackman of Cameo, and Spike Lee), Ron Caron on Drums (played with the Rembrandts, Tina and the B sides, The Melismatics). Cory Eischen on Keys (played with New Power Generation and Prince’s protégé group: Mazarati).
