MAGIC! Live in Manila this October 2014

Canadian reggae fusion band “MAGIC!” will be having their first-ever concert tour in Manila on October 22, 2014 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resort’s World Manila.

Composed of songwriter and record producer Nasri, Mark Pellizzer, Alex Tanas and Ben Spivak, they are the band behind the hit songs “Rude” and “Don’t Kill the Magic.” They describe their music as a fusion of reggae, rock, pop, and a little soul.

According to lead vocalist Nasri, the band was formed during a writing session in 2012 with Mark Pelli. He said, that time, it seemed like there was a divine intervention or universal synergy fusing the right elements together to create good music. And when he heard Mark strum a reggae-tigged riff, something clicked and just like magic, their band was formed and so the name Magic! was also adopted.

Soon after the initial jam of Nasri and Mark, drummer Alex Tanas and bassist Ben Spivak joined the two to form a quartet and entered a Los Angeles studio to record its full-length debut album in 2013.

“We started recording, and it was so easy.We’re all from Toronto originally. We know the same streets, and we grew up on the same music. It’s the real thing,” said Nasri

“I want everybody to join us on this MAGIC! adventure. It’s a stressful time out there, and people are struggling to find hope in balance. This music is meant to put you in a good mood. We want to bring people together to have a good time. It’s not about us. It’s about the music. We want you to be a part of that energy and a positive musical world,” he added
