Party like it’s 2017: Purple Xperience brings Prince reverence to State Theatre

October 4, 2017 - Jonas Brothers

Meeting Prince outward of a room in Eden Prairie, Minn., was not what Marshall Charloff expected.

When Charloff’s bandmate told him Prince was his initial cousin, Charloff didn’t trust him. So, his bandmate valid it. He suggested they go hang out with Prince. It was 1984 — a same year Prince’s “When Doves Cry” strike No. 1 on a Billboard Hot 100. And they were usually going to bound on Charloff’s motorcycle, go for a float and compensate a revisit to one of a biggest names in music? Yeah, OK, Mr. Prince’s First Cousin.

“I said, ‘We’re usually going to go to Prince and a Revolution? We’re usually going to go hang out with them right now?’” says Charloff, job from his home in northern Minneapolis, nearby where Prince lived.

He adds, “[His bandmate was] like, ‘Yeah, we’re usually going to go hang out with my cousin, OK? Let’s go.’”
