Since the creation of the band just three years ago, The Magic Beans have established themselves as a prominent and original act in the perpetually flooded Colorado music scene. The group made a name for itself with a deep cannon of original songs, virtuosic playing and fusing genres, while connecting with its fan base in a way that is not typical with other bands.
The Magic Beans come to Agave in Avon for a show today, with Denver trio Cycles opening for the group at 9:30 p.m.
Moving Mind and Booty
Drawing from a wide range of influences, The Beans’ style can be described as natural and all encompassing. The band is known to play funk, bluegrass, rock and electronica, sometimes in a single composition. Improvisation, crowd participation and original set lists each night make for high-energy live shows said to move the mind and booty.
The Magic Beans use no prerecorded tracks or samples, in favor of a more traditional approach to music: original songwriting, diverse instrumentation and continually pushing the musical envelope by seamlessly combining acoustic roots music and traditional instruments with modern technology and electric dance music.
Cycles is a relatively new trio based out of Denver. The group features Michael Wood on drums, Patrick Harvey on guitar and Tucker McClung on bass and lead vocals. Drawing influence from artists such as Phish, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Primus, J Dilla, Grant Greene, Pink Floyd and Herbie Hancock, Cycles blends a variety of styles ranging from rock to jazz to hip-hop to funk, soul, blues and many more. With an emphasis on improvisation and risk-taking with a touch of humor, the group creates an electric groove.
