LIVE MUSIC STAGES
As a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Marshall has dominated stages of live music venues worldwide for over a decade. He delivers a tribute to Prince that is unparalleled in authenticity. The Purple Piano is the culmination of his musicianship and his performance chops–a great fit for a wide variety of venue sizes and markets.
Coming from fronting the greatest Prince tribute show in the world, working with the Atlanta Rhythm Section and writing and producing the Commodores, Marshall Charloff created his solo tribute to Prince–the only production of its kind in the world. “The Purple Piano” is so enthusiastically-received that it landed a full-time residency in Las Vegas–delighting Prince fans from across the globe.
Now adding tour dates, this show is an interactive and highly-entertaining production, weaving together the highlights of Prince’s catalog through Marshall’s musicianship and mastery of audience engagement.
“Charloff shares Prince’s vocal range and multi-instrumental facility on guitar and piano!”
Marshall has performed worldwide – fronting the finest symphonies in most major cities in North America, featuring the music of Prince; and continues to tour fronting the celebrated Purple xPeRIeNCE. Early in his career, Marshall honed his piano performance and audience participation chops while touring nationally in the FunKeys, an acclaimed dueling pianos show.
He is featured on recordings with Prince on the album 94 East, where Marshall plays both keyboards and bass guitar, and recently collaborated with Prince’s sister Sharon Nelson, to co-write and record “Colours”. Pepe Willie, who discovered Marshall, was also responsible for getting Prince’s career up and running. In 2011, Marshall teamed up with Doctor Fink, from Prince & The Revolution, to perform at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame benefit concert.
Marshall has released multiple singles and albums. His second album, “Unperfect” was awarded Top 100 Albums of 2020 on the Global Jazz charts (smoothjazz.com), owing largely to his chart-topping smooth jazz smash-hit, “HipNautic”, which remained smooth jazz charts for over 25 weeks. Marshall’s work has been described by critics as “soulful, delicate, and sensual”; and features “sultry grooves and fanciful retro keys with a laid back vibe”.
Marshall has had multiple commercial releases – some that charted in Billboard Magazine, including a single that landed on Billboard’s Top 100 dance charts. More recently, with an early version of “What If”, Charloff landed another Billboard accolade: #10 on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales Chart.

THE tribute for real Prince Fans!
He played all of the hits, and so many of my faves I’ve never heard live before. Flew to Las Vegas to see this show and it was unbelievable. Can’t wait to go again!
Purple vibe is still alive
I was in person to witness the end of the rain, experiencing the last two concerts of Prince piano and microphone in Atlanta. I can say without a doubt that Marshal Charloff has captured the magic of that show with his Purple Piano performances. Marshal’s musicianship, charm and passion took me back to that night. Truly gives me the “feels”. Marshal shares personal stories and brings the purple vibe alive. If his show comes to your town – go and enjoy a wonderful night with the hits and treasured deep cuts that a long time Prince Fam craves to hear. Marshal will not disappoint.

A Performance We Will NEVER Forget
Marshall’s talent is unrivaled. He performed a private concert at our Minneapolis wedding and it was vibrant, intimate, and oozing with Prince-y-ness. Not only is Marshall’s voice beautiful and his piano and guitar skills magnificent, he also is charming and hilarious, playing along with his audience and getting everyone involved in the show. Some quotes from our guests:
* “THAT WAS EPIC”
* “Marshall is f*cking TALENTED”
* “Wow—I learned a lot about Minnesota music. Who knew?” (oh, did we mention he goes through a whole tribute to music from Minnesota? It’s truly a delightful history lesson)
We are now superfans and cannot wait to see him perform again and again and again.
