Play loud, preach hard! Welcoming the first gospel band to WF23, and established in 1990 right here in Grass Valley, Machaira (muh-kai-ruh) is a non-denominational Christian band that spreads the Love of The Lord by performing contemporary blues/rock/gospel music that speaks to audiences of all ages. This 10-piece band blends deep rhythm and harmonies with a stellar horn section, representing a broad range of diversity that transposes gospel sounds into a marvelous musical stew. Machaira is Greek for sword, and the band has claimed from the Bible, Hebrews 4:12 “The word of God is living and active and sharper than a dual edge sword.” Playing a variety of styles and having released seven recordings on CD and working on their eighth, they have also been blessed with a series of music videos and their own show called Live At Machaira’s House.
