Ben Spivak has always loved playing in bands. Most notably he is a member of Canadian pop-reggae band Magic! who have achieved an astounding amount of worldwide success since their breakout hit “Rude,” which spent 6 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went to #1 in over 40 countries around the world. A look at some of their accomplishments include awards (2x Juno winners, SOCAN award, ASCAP and BMI awards), talk show appearances (Kimmel, Fallon, The View), TV Specials (Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve), Awards show performances (American Music Awards, Juno Awards, Latin Grammys, Fashion Awards), collaborations (Wyclef Jean, Shakira, Marc Anthony, Sean Paul), hit songs (“Rude,” “Lay You Down Easy,” “No Way No,”), festival performances (Pinkpop!, Rock in Rio, KAABOO), as well as direct opening slots with Maroon 5, Train, John Legend, and earning over 3 billion streams online. When Magic! and the rest of the world got put on hold last year, Ben began releasing his own music. In the last 6 months he has released 5 singles, “Come A Day,” “Energy From The Past,” “Older,” “Angel Fire,” and “Never Got To The Light” and he plans to continue this trend in July with his next single “I Love The Music.” In May of 2021, Ben and his band played their first gig since 2019 at Hollywood’s legendary Hotel Café as a fundraiser for the venue. It was livestreamed and watched by fans all over the world. Equal parts Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac and Allman Brothers, classic bands who put just as much love in to their songs as their live performances, Ben Spivak’s concerts are musical, malleable, and meaningful. It’s musicians playing music. Organic, spontaneous, and always a party, both Spivak’s songs and his live performances are a place to be yourself, make friends and get lost in the music.
