Re: “Alive After Five: Magic Giant

Magic Giant. One of the greatest bands Ive seen in the last 20+ years. This band is about ready to bust out BIG! I dont bandy about with any undeserved accolades but I was left truly speechless by the performance I saw today in the 95 heat at Alive After 5.

Not since I was floored back in November of 1994 by the then unheard of Dave Matthews Bands performance at The Backstage in Seattle have I been so excited by a new band. Seriously. Smart catchy excellently crafted jam-pop tribal mayhem with sweet-ass vocals delivered by Austin Bis to an audience of 4 generations that this band owned from the first 3 minutes on stage. They had 1000 people in their pocket and commanded a stage presence I havent seen in decades from any act.

Brian Zaghi blew me away as he wielded a cello on a guitar strap as Bis jumped around and off the stage and into the crowd like the pied piper. And ohhh, the tribal drumming...

These guys delivered and they ran the crowd like seasoned pros. Watch em and love em. I did.
