Marshall Charloff & Purple XPeRIeNCE is the most authentic and awe-inspiring celebration of Prince in the world. Hailing from Prince’s birthplace, Minneapolis, Minnesota and touring worldwide since 2011, the act was created by Dr. Fink and front-man Marshall Charloff. Purple XPeRIeNCE delivers the greatest production of Prince and the Revolution in the world to audiences of all generations: Purple XPeRIeNCE has entertained hundreds of thousands of fans and has shared the stage with The Time, Cameo, Fetty Wap, Gin Blossoms, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and Cheap Trick.
Lead singer, Marshall Charloff, not only 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, but Marshall performs nationwide fronting world-class symphonies in most major cities in the US and Canada. Recently, Marshall Charloff teamed up with the famous jazzman Marcus Anderson (New Power Generation, 3rd Eye Girl sax player) in Raleigh, NC to perform with the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra.
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 (On the same bill were Cheap Trick, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and the Georgia Satellites).
