Masks House Concert Featuring John Magnie of the Subdudes
Wednesday, June 9
$30 MoA Members
Admission includes 2 free drinks.
Denver native, John Magnie has become a Fort Collins treasure.
After a stint in New Orleans where he met and came together with his most well-known band, The Subdudes, Magnie brought the rest of the band west and settled in Fort Collins during the years when housing was affordable and airport traffic was lighter. His soulful baritone voice is a familiar part of several of our most beloved music groups including Three Twins, Young Ancients, The Magnie Family Band, and most recently, The Del Shamen with his Subdudes bandmate Steve Amedee, Firefall’s Jock Bartley, Nick Forster from eTown and Hot Rize, and Eric Thorin, an in-demand local bass phenom.
Magnie’s songs are known for their uplifting lyrics, catchy hooks, and incessant grooves. He moves from funk to blues to ballads to R & B with a facility nurtured by influences from Professor Longhair to Doctor John to Jackie Wilson. His audiences are brought together with a compelling urge to clap, stomp and sing along for an evening of music that will not be forgotten.
The evening will also include interviews with a handful of Masks artists.
