The Love Machine grew out of the 60's & 70's music explosion of love and peace. When we realised we needed to "get together and love one another right now" and "love is all you need". It was a simpler time when it was the most natural thing to drop into any open house party on the Northern Beaches and jam along to the current tunes which everyone knew. Long before everything became digital.

The Love Machine can get political when necessary but don't worry it's always with an inclusive, positive message designed to inspire change for the better. Think Joni, Jimi, Marvin and CSNY, add a dash of jazz, blues and soul and you're in the right zone for a date with The Love Machine.

The Love Machine consists of:
Sue Hoyle (vocals)
Margie Salem (vocals/guitar)
Pierre Luniere (vocals,bass… Johnny O'Keeffe, RadioActive, Hoola, Dogswamp, The Sketch, Bluzenfunkenstuff)
AndrewHoyle (guitar … Bobby Sox, Southerly Buster, Big Game)
