Event Description


Magic City Hippies began as a one-man band playing for the co-ed party scene on the streets of Miami -- serenading the 20-somethings with a mix of old-school hip-hop covers and breezy pop originals.


After months of stealing electricity and stirring up crowds of passers-by with his loop-based setup, Robby Hunter was given an ultimatum by the local police: cease and desist from street performance or get a gig at a “real bar.” Finding sanctuary in the neighborhood dive, Hunter enlisted the support of multi-instrumentalists Pat Howard (drums) and John Coughlin (guitar) for a regular Friday night gig (that paid, of course, in free beer).


The trio dubbed themselves Robby Hunter Band and released a self-produced, widely acclaimed debut LP in 2013 entitled Magic City Hippies, which included the beachy Hype Machine-topper "Corazón" alongside indie blog hits ”Hard On Me" and "BUST.”


Encouraged by the international reach and positive reception of their debut, they decided to expand their sound and approach under the better-fitting moniker Magic City Hippies (after the title of their debut LP). In July of 2015, the Magic City Hippies released the Hippie Castle EP, with the lead-off track "Fanfare" hitting #1 on both Spotify's Global Viral Top 50 and Hype Machine’s popular chart. The EP has accumulated over 10-million Spotify streams to date.


More recently, the band has translated their unique blend of breezy pop and party funk into an unforgettable live experience, leading to sold out tour dates around the country. 2018 saw a chain of singles that have been embraced by long time listeners and new fans alike, reaching nearly 8-million streams. Heading into 2019 with a fully stocked North American tour, Magic City Hippies are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.


Nashville-based funk band LUTHI will support the show.
