Buddy Mcneil & The Magic Mirrors

The mutant half-sailor, half-cowboy offspring of a passionate affair between the past and the present, Buddy McNeil & The Magic Mirrors are kindred spirits of the dynamic young Stones, The Flying Burrito Brothers and contemporary rockers Heavy Trash. With the playful pop of the 50s and decadent sounds of the 60s running through their veins, they offer a "what you see is what you get" approach in the studio and on stage: they don't pretend to revolutionize the genre, but they're ready to give their all until night gives way to dawn in the captain's spyglass and his mistresses' eyes. After releasing their nine-track debut independent album in the spring of 2008 and the well received EP "Help Me Mama! " in summer 2010, the band—who since opened for the legendary Brian Setzer Orchestra, The Proclaimers, Murder by Death and Holly Golightly, and played big festivals and events such as Pop Montreal (2010), Festival d’été de Québec (2009-2010) and Festival de Musique Émergente d’Abitibi-Témiscamingue (2009)—is back from the grave with a brand-new LP, "Introducing, Once Again, Buddy McNeil & The Magic Mirrors", to be released in January 2011.
