The Magic Beans
The Magic Beans are band with a passion for music that is as infectious as their songs, both of which have gained them national notoriety in a short time. Much like the taste’s of modern music lovers, the band’s sound isn’t confined to one-genre. The Beans strive to be as inclusive as possible by skirting the lines between many genres within their unique sound. The band’s infectious stage chemistry is very inclusive of the audience, resulting in a close knit fanbase around the group dubbed, “Team Bean”. The group uses no pre-recorded tracks or samples in favor of a more traditional approach to music; original songwriting and continually pushing the envelope are what have set this group apart. Whether you like ballads or bangers, the Beans have something you will enjoy. Seamlessly combining clever songwriting with modern dance music, The Magic Beans strive to be original and expressive in a world where everything’s been done.

Brooklyn based Teddy Midnight demonstrates a creative combination of progressive rock, drum and bass, jazz and downtempo. This unique blend earned the term Electro-Dance-Funk, a self- described genre based on the style of Teddy Midnight. The band’s live show instinctively gets the party moving and won’t let up any time soon. With members Wiley Griffin, Sean McAuley, Adam Magnan, and Sean Silva, Teddy Midnight is the group you don’t want to miss.
Teddy Midnight’s debut EP was released early 2014 featuring songs that Live for Live Music calls “…cosmic, soothing contemplative pieces that soar through carefully constructed sections, and will have you dancing.”
They’ve shared the stage with fellow local bands, Dopapod, Consider the Source and MUN, as well as festival regulars Kung Fu, Twiddle, The Werks, Brothers Past, Lespecial, and The Indobox.
After playing sold out shows at NYC venues such as Irving Plaza, Brooklyn Bowl, Gramercy Theatre, and Bowery Ballroom, Teddy Midnight performed at various festivals during Summer 2015. New fans were gained during well known festivals such as Catskill Chill, Disc Jam, Spectral Fest, Harvest Fest and the Werk Out Festival this year and continue to generate a loyal following. The band has been hard at work this fall after the announcement of Wiley Griffin as their lead guitarist in August and are currently recording a new full length album at Telefunken Studio.
