Magic Jackson

The members of Magic Jackson have been hard at work in the studio on a new album that's set to be the label debut for IBC Records.  The yet-to-be named album features a honing of the group's blend of rock and Dayton funk with lots of collaborations and guest appearances from other local and regional musicians.

Magic Jackson made a return visit to the WYSO studios for a live set on Kaleidoscope and to debut some of the tracks from their upcoming album.  They'll be performing live on June 15 at J-Alan's in Dayton.
