Party Machine

The GRACE Gala will rock to the high-energy sounds of Party Machine this October!

Party Machine will help GRACE celebrate the 15th annual Gala on Saturday, October 6, at the Gaylord Texan Resort. All the proceeds from the event will support GRACE services.

Part of the Emerald City management group that has honored the Gala in recent years with the Limelight Band and, of course, the Emerald City Band, Party Machine is the newest member of the team and is quickly making a name for itself.

“Last year, Emerald City rocked our stage. We can’t wait for their newest band to do the same,” said GRACE Executive Director Shonda Schaefer.

The band has played several high-profile private events, performing for the Frisco Mayor’s Ball, the Grant Halliburton Foundation, Great Wolf Lodge, and Delta Dallas. Party Machine played two huge outdoor Independence Day festivals in 2017: The Addison Kaboomtown fireworks celebration and the Fort Worth Fourth.

The band was the brain child of Emerald City Band leader Deno Taglioli. He envisioned a band that could bring non-stop music, lights and motion from the moment they hit the stage. Gala guests will hit the dance floor to Party Machine’s covers of songs from the 1950’s through today.

“I’m very proud that monies raised at the Gala go to help our neighbors in need.” said Schaefer.  “Many thanks to Deno [Taglioli] and Party Machine for joining in the cause.”

The Gala is the single, largest fundraising event for the agency, and revenues from the event are used to fund the many programs and services offered to GRACE clients throughout the year.

Sponsorships for the black-tie event are available. Please contact Melissa Ansley at 817-467-4672 or email for more information.
