The Purple Xperience is widely considered the greatest Prince tribute act around. The five-piece group, led by Marshall Charloff, “embodies the image, intensity and sounds” (musicinminnesota.com) of Prince’s life. Founded in 2011 by Charloff and original Revolution band member Matt “Doctor” Fink, the Purple Xperience has entertained well over 300,000 fans, sharing stages with The Time, Cameo, Fetty Wap, Gin Blossoms, Atlanta Rhythm Section and Cheap Trick. Charloff, who has performed nationwide fronting world-class symphonies, styles the magic of Prince’s talent in appearance, vocal imitation and multi-instrumental capacity. Charloff, playing keyboards and bass guitar, recorded with Prince on “94 East.” Alternative Revolt calls the resemblance between Charloff and Prince “striking … both in looks and musical prowess. The high notes. The guitar chops. The moves. It’s all there in full supply.”
