TO SEE THE MACHETE IN ACTION IS AN EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER. THEIR LIVE SESSION ON MY SHOW WAS SIMPLY OUT OF THIS WORLD AND I CAN’T RECOMMEND THEIR GIGS ENOUGH

Rebecca C, 2 years ago

You never really know what the next thing to take you brilliantly by surprise will be. Something about certain presentations of music, certain forms of expression, the certain exercising of creative freedom, combined explosively to offer this new and exciting array of sound that completely wins you over. That’s exactly the case with The Machete.
