Magic Beans

The third annual Northlands Music and Arts Festival rolled into Day Two on June 14, 2024, with what can only be described as a stacked, jam-band-friendly lineup. This event took place at the Cheshire Fairgrounds in Swanzey, NH, and went on without any rain during the live music.

Northlands Music & Arts Festival is thrilled to announce the lineup for the 2024 edition of the highly-anticipated summer event. Taking place June 14-15, 2024 in the rolling hills of Swanzey, NH, the third annual festival promises to be yet another unforgettable musical experience.

In an insightful examination of life, death, and the clarity stirred by life’s final moments, Magic Beans delivers lyrical depth and artistic range in its newest release “You & Me.” Dropping today, the single demonstrates a broadening musical palette for the band as they infuse the tune with Americana, folk, and country sounds.


The Magic Beans celebrated 4/20, the relatively new, legalized cannabis holiday in New York state, last Thursday, April 20, 2023 at the Sultan Room in Brooklyn, NY. Nestled in the vibrant Bushwick neighborhood, the sweet smells of THC were omnipresent this evening all around the venue. The Beans kicked the festivities up a notch with a Steely Dan parody, along with their catalog of jam rock, funk, r&b and hip hop originals.

For over a decade, Colorado-based jam quartet Magic Beans have built a loyal nationwide following nationwide through incredible songwriting and a steady creative output. Unzipped, the band’s forthcoming LP, is an invigorating leap down a musical path untraveled for the hard-touring musicians. Known for engaging performances defined by extensive melodic exploration and polyphonic harmony, the Beans' newest project showcases adept musicianship through crisp, concise production.

Beanstalk Music Festival announces the music schedule for the blowout 10th anniversary event in Bond, CO, June 23rd-25th. Since its creation, Beanstalk has emerged as an industry-leading festival experience, known for a laid back atmosphere, no overlapping talent, and plethora of outdoors activities. The festival will ring in its tenth year with music from Dopapod, The Main Squeeze, Aqueous, Orchard Lounge, and of course the hosts, 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.
