Two rising-star artists, Colorado’s Magic Beans and Montana’s Kitchen Dwellers, will embark on a co-headlining tour across the U.S. in early 2019. Each stop during the upcoming monthlong tour—which spans from Saturday, January 12th, to Saturday, February 8th, 2019—will feature full sets from both bands in addition to nightly sit-ins and collaborations.

The tour will kick off with a two-night Colorado run in mid-January, with a tour-opening performance at Telluride’s Sheridan Opera House on January 12th followed up with a show at Durango’s Animas Theatre on January 13th. The 19-date tour will also feature a two-night run across Texas, both groups’ debut headlining appearance in Atlanta, and highly anticipated shows at Baltimore, MD’s The 8X10 (1/31); Columbus, OH’s Woodlands Tavern (2/1); Covington, KY’s The Octave (2/2); and more. In February, the two fan-favorite acts will return to Colorado to wrap up their joint 2019 winter tour at Magic Beans’ 2nd-annual Snowstalk Festival, which will take place at Frisco, CO’s newly opened 10 Mile High Music Hall on February 8th and 9th.

Magic Beans and Kitchen Dwellers have a longstanding history as friends and collaborators, spanning back to their college days. Now, as established, nationally touring artists, the two bands have continued to work together closely, teaming up for performances in their respective homes of Colorado and Montana and across the Rocky Mountain region. This collaborative relationship was solidified at Magic Beans’ annual summer festival, Beanstalk Music & Mountains Festival, at Colorado’s Rancho Del Rio, where Kitchen Dwellers have regularly served as a featured artist since the festival’s inception.

As Magic Beans’ guitarist and lead vocalist, Scott Hachey, explained, “It’s been a long road since we first crossed paths with the Dwellers over five years ago. Back then, we had nothing to lose, and everything was brand new. These days, there’s a lot more at stake, and we’ve been down these highways many times. One thing that hasn’t changed is our passion for creating music that brings people together as a family—if only for one night, but hopefully for life—like the bond between the bands. Can’t wait to hit the road once again with these boys!”

Added Kitchen Dwellers’ mandolinist, Shawn Swain, “I couldn’t be any more stoked to have Magic Beans joining us. We’ve been close friends with those boys since the very beginning, and this tour feels as though things have come full circle. Both bands have been working really hard these last few years, and we’re looking forward to sharing the stage again.”

At the end of the month, Kitchen Dwellers will release a brand-new EP titled Reheated, Vol. 1. Marking the first in a series of EPs dedicated to covers, Reheated, Vol. 1 finds Kitchen Dwellers paying tribute to The Band, offering up their own twist on four classic tracks in celebration of the 42nd anniversary of The Last Waltz, The Band’s famed farewell concert on November 25th, 1976.

Kitchen Dwellers recorded Reheated, Vol. 1 during a brief break between their extensive winter and spring 2018 tours. Featuring guest keyboardist Jordan Feinstein on “Get Up Jake” and “Chest Fever”, the album was recorded and engineered by Mike Scully at northern California’s In The Pocket Studio, with additional recording sessions at New Jersey’s Brooksound Studio with Jeff “Mudd” Mahajan. The album was mixed at Studio 2200 by Mike Scully.

Reheated, Vol. 1 will be released in full on all streaming services on November 30th. Ahead of The Last Waltz’s anniversary this Sunday, Kitchen Dwellers will premiere a track from the EP each day this week through Thanksgiving. “Don’t Do It” marks the first single off the album and has been released today on YouTube (https://youtu.be/azZvwiFJlYY)

The band’s guitar play Max Davies “I still remember the first time I saw The Last Waltz, the greatest concert movie of all time.  Something about that stage being lit up and the all-star musician cast that The Band had a history with. It's iconic. The Band's storytelling, musicianship, and vocal abilities are what makes them such an influential group to this day.  Those are all things that resonate with us and it was a blast to step inside their shoes and learn a thing or two.”

Currently, Kitchen Dwellers are in the midst of one of their busiest years to date. On November 23rd, the Montana fan-favorites will make their debut at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, supporting Twiddle. The band has also been tapped to perform the inaugural East Coast edition of the renowned WinterWonderGrass festival in Stratton, Vermont, in mid-December. The Dwellers will make good use of their upcoming trip to the Northeast, with high-profile stops in major markets such as Brooklyn and Boston surrounding the debut festival appearance.

To close out 2018, the band has announced a three-night New Year’s Eve run across the Northwest, with stops in Seattle, Portland, and Bend. After a star-studded two-night run at Cervantes’ in Denver in early January, Kitchen Dwellers will team up with Colorado’s Magic Beans for a 19-date co-headlining tour across the U.S. that spans from January 12th to February 8th. The beloved bluegrass up-and-comers will also support Twiddle and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong in May at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.
