Magic Beans

Today, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong announced a fourteen-stop 2021 fall tour. After a pair of shows at the historic Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY (10/14-10/15), the boisterous, Baltimore-based funk quartet will soar through the mid-atlantic region with a trio of Halloween shows that will not disappoint. On 10/29, the band will head to Washington DC’s The Anthem, followed by a stop at Stage AE in Pittsburgh on 10/30.

Rounding a 10-year milestone on the Colorado music scene and persevering through a one-year tour break, Magic Beans announces release of its third album “Slice of Life” today. Aptly named as a peek into the band’s year off tour, the 14-song album weaves a tapestry of sound purposefully mastered to stir deeper connection with Magic Beans fans.

Surmounting an unforeseen, one-year tour break imposed by coronavirus, Magic Beans hits the airwaves with fresh energy showcased in two new singles: “Sharon Is Karen” drops today, and “Footprints in the Rain” debuts on April 16. Both singles hail from “Slice of Life,” the band’s newest, double-record album scheduled for full release on April 30.

Every Monday for this current month of March, jam funk quartet Magic Beans are set to perform what they’ve dubbed Magic Mondays: a roughly two-hour virtual performance from their home practice space in Colorado, live streamed on their Facebook page. The band has performed two Magic Mondays thus far, which have been free to stream as they will be the rest of March as well.
