The Magic Band

Biography

The Magic Music group was the backing group for the legendary Captain Beefheart during the period of his recording career. Needless to say, the personnel transformed over time, therefore the name just described whomever was support the Captain at that time. Until 2003, that’s. Matt Groening was appointed curator from the All Tomorrow’s Celebrations event for 2003. As a significant Beefheart lover, Groening suggested convening a fresh version from the Magic Music group made up of Beefheart veterans for the shows. Therefore, a version from the Magic Music group that never in fact supported Captain Beefheart was created: John French (Drumbo) on drums and vocals, Tag Boston (Rockette Morton) on bass, and Gary Lucas and Denny Walley on guitars. (Robert Williams manned the drum seat when Drumbo was performing). They not merely played the event, but also documented among the rehearsals for the demonstrates premiered as Back again to leading in 2003. In 2011, Sundazed released Oxford, UK-June 6, a live day originally documented in 2005, that presented the very much same lineup as on Back again to the Front.
