Magic City Hippies are three Florida born, Miami natives bringing a little hip hop & soul influence to smooth, groovy indie funk.
Yeah, they’ve got a lot going on.
Robby Hunter started playing on the streets of the ‘Magic City,’ garnering attention from passerbys, (and police). He moved his setup inside of venues and added Pat Howard on drums and John Coughlin on guitar.
Magic City Hippies were the most suggested band to me before embarking on my musical forest version of a booze cruise. Less water, same amount of liquid.
There was no denying why they had a rather large crowd at their set. And, it wasn’t hard to catch onto what everyone else was already aware of … MCH are fun as hell. Their ability to make you dance is cut with equal amounts of authenticity in lyrics and swagger.
Robby Hunter runs the show as your confidante. He doesn’t take the responsibility to report back to the world lightly, and does so in with ease & ample cool. Florals n’ all.
The guys are as comfortable onstage covering “Caroline” by Amine as they are sweating on a velour couch sipping beers. Luckily, I got to catch both sides of Robby, Pat, and John before they melted the ‘HERE’ stage with just the right amount of sex, rock, & funk.
