WAR’s long-hailed musical virtuosity and influences, which include Jazz, Rock, Funk, Soul, R&B, and Latin, have impacted their fans, as well as other musicians, regardless of race, generation, or genre. Founding member, Lonnie Jordan, states that this is one “WAR” that has truly brought people together for peace, love, and harmony. Their music and history transcends generations of pop culture and has a universal appeal to parents, grandparents, and children across the world. With over forty years in the music industry, WAR has had a profound influence on contemporary American music and continues to provide stellar live performances for today’s audiences.

Renowned for his role as the lead guitarist and primary songwriter for GRAMMY nominated and Latin GRAMMY winning disco Funk stars Los Amigos Invisibles, DJ Afro (A.K.A. Jose Luis Pardo) has released remix compilations and an original album Free as a solo producer, collaborating with artists like Dmitri From Paris, Louie Vega and David Byrne and DJing at infamous NYC parties including Turntables on the Hudson, Giant Step, and PS-1.
