The Magic Band are the classic backing group for Captain Beefheart.
This will be the group’s only London date. Last year’s Scala gig sold out so book early!
“The Magic Band, includes three stalwarts from Captain Beefheart’s various original Magic Bands of the 60s and 70s, and impressed because of their musicianship and discipline, and the authentic, fresh sounding interpretations of the Beefheart canon. They avoided the pitfalls of being a homage or tribute band, imposing their own character on the material drawn from the breadth of Beefheart’s creative output.”
