Marshall Charloff and The Purple XPeRIeNCE - Prince Tribute Band


The Purple Xperience is a five-piece group hailing from Prince’s birthplace, Minneapolis, MN.  They have been touring around the country since it’s 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. Since 2011 Purple Xperience has entertained well over 300 thousand fans and has shared the bill 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).

Marshall Charloff is a celebrated producer and recording artist. He produced, wrote and recorded for the Multi Platinum and Grammy award winning Commodores. Produced, Wrote and recorded for Hall of Fame Inductee Little Anthony (Little Anthony and the Imperials). His skills paved the way for Marshmallow Fields: a 1990s production team consisting of Marshall, Grammy winner John Fields (The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, and Switchfoot), and Steven “Funkytown” Greenberg and their single charted on the Billboard Top 100 dance charts and is still in rotation amongst DJs around the country. Marshall is also an inductee in the Mid America Music Hall Of Fame as a member of the band Westside.

Cory Eischen on Keys (played with New Power Generation, Prince’s protégé group: Mazarati, Soul Asylum’s Dave Pirner and Dan Wilson from Semisonic).

''Charloff now not only performs with The Purple Xperience but also with symphonies worldwide, giving audiences who might never have had a chance to see Prince in person a taste of what made him an American treasure.''

Stars entertain us. Icons do something much more. They embody us. They tell us something about who we are and maybe who we want to be. They are both a reflection and a force that shapes us. They are a spirit of our times, culture, intellectual, and political climate of a specific group within a particular period. It's a collective consciousness of a time in our lives. These icons are more aware of this than the rest of us, they have the insight and intellect to become a thermometer of their era, they have the power to reflect this in their art. For our generation, our icon was Prince. It was Prince's ability to epitomize and refine everything we aspire to be as musicians and as human beings that inevitably inspired the creation of the Purple XPeRIeNCE many years ago. We have always paid tribute to him with honor and respect. His loss six years ago broke our hearts and emboldened our resolve to humbly keep his legacy alive to the best of our ability. There was never one like him before and there will never be one like him again. We were blessed to live in his time. Thank you, Prince, for exposing our generation to new boundaries of musical genius and possibility. We love you. May you Rest In Peace always, PX ... See MoreSee Less
