DMP at Number 39

The Magic Beans

Thursday 7th June 2018 9pm

After over a two year absence we was getting very hungry for some of those Magic Beans so we are very pleased to welcome them back to Number 39 where they are sure to provide a feast on their wholesome organic sounds.

Zoe Kyoti is the singer with the The Magic Beans and in her own words she sums up the band...

"The Magic Beans is a musical democracy between myself, guitarist Ulrich Elbracht and double bassist Matt Owens. We like to experiment with a quirky cover or two stretched in a completely new direction with a sprinkling of originals. Our arrangements come from a diverse range of sources from jazz standards to soul & rock bands but re-worked into the Magic Bean's sound of roots, acoustic, folk & jazz." - Zoe Kyoti

Their current and second album, "Anything You Can Dream" has proved to be a great success, it has a very happy, sunshiny feeling as depicted on the cover, buy one and it'll feel like summer! It also features some expert maraca playing from Rick Weedon.

"The Beat Goes On is an amazing song, with singer Zoe Kyoti twinkling on a Sonny Bono lyric that evokes a time (the swinging sixties) discusses it, and is supremely confident that it can't get any better. Matt Owens, an authoritative string bassist and Ulrich Elbracht, resolutely unflashy and quietly adventurous on guitar, are purely at the service of the music. True Colours offers an object lesson in how restraint actively enhances the emotional punch. The pain of Every Little Bit Hurts is more tingling than traumatic. Everything Kyoti touches is beautiful, with a singing styles as intimate as speech." - Citylife Online
