We are late getting an update to you this year, but man, 2023 has been a blast for us so far and it's just getting started. We have a lot of shows on the calendar for this Spring & Summer, and the best news is, it looks like we will FINALLY be releasing our 2nd album this year. We know, we have said that quite a few times over the years, but this time, we really mean it! The recording process is over, so now we just work on the preparation of getting everything to you in the best possible format we can! More to come on this in the very near future. Until then, come see us live--we'd love to hang out with you!!
Thank you for visiting the official website for Magic Birds, a Chattanooga, TN-based band made up of Scott Bruce and Ben Ezell. Delivering their own brand of Americana music, the duo blends together elements of classic country, bluegrass and folk, producing a style of music that exemplifies the sound that has helped shape their lives. Check out the site, see where the next performance will be and take a listen to a few tunes. Hope you like what you hear!
We had so much fun in Ben's hometown of Marshall, NC back in September, that we are headed back that way in April. We cannot wait to hang out with our NC family and friends again. We will be performing from 6-9pm, so please make sure to mark your calendar!
Ryan Monroe (Band of Horses) & Josh Roberts w/ Magic Birds @ Songbirds Guitar Museum
This will be a very special night and Magic Birds is beyond thrilled to be a part of it. Ryan Monroe has been a major part of Band of Horses for 16 years, and since Band of Horses are not playing out live as much in 2023, he has teamed up with his old buddy Josh Roberts (Josh Roberts & The Hinges, Delta Circus) to go out on tour together. To know how special this is, you would have to go back to the early 2000s when Scott from Magic Birds booked bands at a venue in Clemson, SC called The Joint. One of the most successful bands to grace the stage at The Joint was Captain Easy, a rock band out of Columbia, SC that included co-frontmen Ryan Monroe and Josh Roberts. After Captain Easy parted ways, the 2 continued to make music separately while remaining very close friends. This tour should be a lot of fun, and will be a treat for all of their fans. Magic Birds will get the night started! Doors @ 6pm / Show @ 7pm, Seated Show.
$20 Advanced / $25 Day of Show
Clayton is one of our favorite towns, with mountains, lakes and rivers all surrounding the area. But once you stop exploring the outdoors, you need a place to meet up with others, eat, drink and shop--and downtown Clayton has it all! We were lucky enough to perform on the outdoor stage at Universal Joint in downtown Clayton back in July, and we are making a return visit in April. If you haven't been to downtown Clayton, or if it has been a while, this will be a great time to visit!!
We had so much fun back in late February at Doc Holidays that we all decided to run in back!! If you did not make it last time, or if you have never been to Docs before, put this one on your calendar. We'll be providing the entertainment, but the fine folks at Docs will be slinging out the drinks and the delicious food. Don't believe us? Come out for yourself and find out! This is a free show and we'll be playing from 8-11pm. Bring it!
