La Maquinaria Norteña is one of the latter generations of norteño groups that have sprung up in the wake of successful North American norteño bands such as Texas' Los Rieleros del Norte. 
The band was formed in Roswell, New Mexico by former Los Rieleros vocalist Polo Urias in 1994, with sax player Keith Nieto, percussionist Erick Urias, accordionist/keyboardist Jimmy Torres, and drummer Aarón Urias. The group signed up to Fonovisa that same year, debuting with the release of Polo Urias y Su Máquina Norteña. The sound of the band is often compared to Los Rieleros, in that is it is hardcore norteño - raw, romantic, and unmitigated by the sheen of Latin pop production. 
In 2006 Nieto split with Urias and formed his own version of La Maquinaria Norteña with his brothers Rory on accordion and Tony on drums, Sergio "Fly" Soto on vocals (formerly of Los Braveros de Peñas), Ivan Gutierrez on bass, and Randy Perez on electric guitar. Their self-titled debut album appeared on Fonovisa in 2007, followed by No Existen Barreras in 2008, and La Nueva Era in 2009. After extensive touring and a bus accident that nearly claimed their lives, the group took a rest and even briefly reunited with Urias. 
Vive en Mi, their fourth album, was issued in late 2013, and was their highest charting set to date, entering the regional Mexican chart in the Top 10.
