When the legendary funk band War put that question to music in 1975, the song echoed a cry for peace that had infiltrated anti-Vietnam America for years. Headed by singer-keyboardist and original founder Lonnie Jordan, War graces The Grand February 11.

The band briefly halted recording during the 1980s, yet despite the loss of a few key members, it never stopped touring.
