Anyone who says disco is dead is lying, because Machine is keeping the fever alive. Best known for its 1979 cult classic
"There But for the Grace of God Go I," Machine was a soul/disco/funk band that tackled the social and political issues of
the day at a time when many other bands were content to churn out the same flaccid stuff. Now they're reunited for a new tour
that will get audiences on their feet and dancing. Purchase Machine concert

Machine was formed in New York in 1977 at the height of the disco era and when most R&B, disco, and funk lyrics were escapist
in nature. But Machine wanted to get people thinking while they danced. The band members were all fans of the R&B message
songs of the early '70s, and they lamented what disco had become, when R&B artists moved away from social and political commentary.
Machine reinvigorated disco with a fresh sound a fresh message, and those messages are just as pertinent today as they were
Machine's biggest hit is the disco classic "There But for the Grace of God Go I." The song spoke to the issues the band
cared about. It's a passionate story, a brilliant piece of social commentary about Latino immigrants who move to the U.S.
in search of a better life but quickly realize how dangerous the mean streets of the Bronx can be. This song resonates just
as much if not more with audiences today, and the best part: You can dance to it!
