The Purple Xperience
Galloway, NJ– Audiences will be wearing their “Raspberry Beret(s)” and partying like it’s 1999 when The Purple Xperience, the ultimate Prince Tribute Band, performs at the Stockton University Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 2.
The Purple Xperience is a five-piece Prince Tribute Band hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota that has been touring around the country since their inception in 2011, bringing the memories of Prince and The Revolution to audiences of all generations.
Tickets are $33 and may be ordered online at stockton.edu/pac or by calling the Box Office at 609-652-9000. The Box Office is open Monday- Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and ninety minutes before each performance. For Group Sales, call 609-652-4786.
The Purple Xperience embodies the spirit and sounds of Prince, with front-man Marshall Charloff channeling the vocals and movements from the icon himself. Conceived by Dr. Fink, The Purple Xperience brings audiences the greatest, most authentic prince tribute show in the world leaving no one disappointed.
Charloff imaginatively 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. He is a celebrated producer and recording artist, skills that proved to pave the way for the start of Marshmallow Fields, a 1990s production team consisting of Charloff, Grammy winner John Fields (The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, and Switchfoot) and Steven “Funkytown” Greenberg. Their single charted on the Billboard Top 100 dance charts and is still in rotation amongst DJs around the country.
On the national platform, Charloff has played rooms throughout the U.S including in Las Vegas and L.A. In 2009, he 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. Most recently, Charloff performed for seven years as one of the country’s most sought after dueling piano players as one-half of The Funkeys, in which he garnered a strong following as one of the nation’s best Prince impersonators as well as for his ability to wow audiences and leave them wanting more.
Hand-picked by Dr. Fink as his surrogate, Cory Eischen (New Power Generation) sits in as keyboardist for Purple Xperience. Eischen is a world renowned “Princeologist” as collector and archiver of Prince audio and video recordings. He has played alongside his good friend Matt “Dr. Fink” (The Revolution), Phil Solem (The Rembrandts), members from Prince’s protégé group, Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum), Mazarati and also Prince’s very own, New Power Generation.
