The Magic Band, Exeter Phoenix, Friday 9th March, 8pm
The Magic Band played alongside the legendary Captain Beefheart and revolutionsed the way in which we perceive modern music with their unqiue collision of the avant garde, the blues, rock, jazz and more besides.
Cited as an influence by bands the world over, this genre-shattering band really have to be seen to be believed as they take on Beefheart’s legacy and their own equally challenging compositions. Featuring original band members John ‘Drumbo’ French, Mark ‘Rockette Morton’ Boston and Denny ‘Feelers Rebo’ Walley this is a chance to witness music you simply won’t hear anywhere else.
“The Magic Band are an important link in the chain which binds together much of today’s experimentation and crossover between the adventurous ends of the rock and jazz spectra well worth seeking out.” London Jazz Review
