Machaira Group Photo

Machaira in Greek means SWORD.

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”.   Based out of the Sacramento CA area, Machaira is a 10-piece representing a broad range of diversity transposing into a musical stew. As a contemporary Blues/Rock/Gospel group, they blend rhythm and harmonies with a horn section creating music that speaks to audiences of all ages.

 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
