Magic Beans kicks off their Northeast Tour on Wednesday, April 19th at The Upstairs Ithaca! Tickets are on sale now!
Magic Beans have steadily built upon their national notoriety in a short period of time with a distinguishable sound that is uniquely their own. Hailing from Denver, the band’s combo of funk/soul/rock has quickly set themselves apart from the pack as one of the state’s premier acts.
The new album, “Off Leash”, is a testament to the group shedding the restraints of genre-based music in favor of embracing different elements found across the musical realm. It was also an exercise in pushing the band’s sound forward, building upon the last release as opposed to simply recreating the sound. Magic Beans use analog and vintage instrumentation to get a style that is both familiar but original. A B3 Organ here, a Wah guitar there - Vintage Synthesizers, and 808 drums (to name a few) make the music reminiscent of your favorite songs, while still sounding fresh. The Beans make music that moves your mind and body, with something for everyone from audiophiles to the everyday music fan.
With appearances at some of the scenes marquee festivals, Red Rocks Amphitheater, a stacked touring schedule and hosting their own Beanstalk Music Festival every June in Colorado, Magic Beans and TeamBean are poised to make waves for many years to come.

Encapsulating influences stretching across decades from psychedelic and jam-focused rock, to funk, post-punk, and even modern indie and post-rock, the Albany, New York collective Glass Pony offer a sound that truly translates through generations, with a stylistic blend built to engage a broad listenership. With a focus squarely set on delivering the most captivating live performance possible, the band utilizes infectiously danceable grooves colored with virtuosic individual performances that deftly blend into a cohesive whole. To accentuate their creative songwriting, they place a great value on improvisation and fluid set lists that change from show to show. The band is comprised of Chanda Dewey (drums), Eddie Hotaling (guitar, lead vocals), Jeff Picarazzi (bass), and Greg Pittz (lead guitar). If you’re seeking an experience that dives much deeper than the usual rigidly-arranged performance, hop on and enjoy the ride.
