Ben Spivak has always loved playing in bands. Most notably he is a member of Canadian pop-reggae band MAGIC! who's worldwide breakout hit Rude spent 6 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and led them to talk show appearances (Kimmel, Fallon, The View), TV Specials (Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve), Awards shows (American Music Awards, Latin Grammys), collaborations (Wyclef Jean, Shakira, Marc Anthony, Sean Paul), hit songs (Rude, Lay You Down Easy (feat. Sean Paul), No Way No), festival performances (Pinkpop!, Rock in Rio), as well as touring with Maroon 5 and earning over 2 billion streams online. Prior to that, Ben had already spent 10 years working, touring and recording in bands. He toured the world and performed at festivals, clubs, theaters, and on television with appearances on Letterman, the Juno Awards, Warped Tour and MTV Australia, with artists including multi-Juno award winner and Grammy nominee K-OS, multi-CCMA winner Johnny Reid, and Canadian festival favorites, Julian Taylor Band. Equal parts The Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac and Allman Brothers Band, bands who put just as much love in to their songs as their live performances, Ben Spivak’s concerts are musical, malleable, and meaningful. It’s musicians playing music. Organic, spontaneous, and always a party, both Spivak’s songs and his live performances are a place to be yourself, make friends and get lost in the music.
