Time: 6:00 PM

Tickets: Get ‘Em

Venue: City Winery

Mashina is an Israeli pop rock band which is considered by many to be Israel’s most important and influential rock band to date. Mashina’s unique sound has been influenced by many well-known Western artists although their subsequent albums combined reggae, punk rock and Middle Eastern elements, creating a sound that is very unique and very Israeli. Mashina has been working, performing and touring together on and off for since the 80’s. Their first, self-titled album, Mashina, released in 1986, was an instant, overnight success, turning platinum in under 6 months. In 2003, after a long hiatus, they decided to reunite and announced their new tour which was a huge, sold-out success. The band has gone on several North American tours, playing at sold out stadiums in Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Toronto, Washington and Los Angeles.
