    The Band of Brothers Tour with American Authors and Magic Giant at Webster Hall in NYC on 2/27/20 by Mark Ashe Photography

    Los Angeles based Magic Giant and Brooklyn based American Authors co-headlined at Webster Hall in New York City this past Thursday.  It was a unique co-headlining concert as the first band was chosen by the game Plinko, Magic Giant won the game and they played five songs, then American Authors played as a band and then with Magic Giant throughout the show.

    Magic Giant is promoting their new album Disaster Party and the show was anything but a disaster with the crowd loving every second of the party happening on the stage.  Billboard magazine calls them,  “a joyful live show the band is inspiring mass dance-alongs,” and the crowd at Webster certainly seemed to agree. 

    Check out the full gallery of photos by Mark Ashe Photography of Magic Giant here.

    The band consists of Austin Bisnow (lead vocals), Zambricki Li (viola, banjo, and harmonica), and Zang (acoustic guitar and cello).   The band was tighter and more self assured than the last time I saw them and still putting on an awesome show. 

    American Authors hail from Brooklyn NY and include Zachary Barnett, James Adam Shelley, Matt Sanchez, and Dave Rublin. 

    This was the last show on the Band of Brothers tour.
