123GO! Project will headline the Spring Back to Vail celebration on Saturday, April 15th, theat Ford Park with a free concert event presented by Bud Light.
The 123GO! Project started in 2011 during the Sundance Film Festival where Stefan Lessard from Dave Matthews Band and Mike McCready from Pearl Jam were working together on the sound track for the film Horrible Bosses. Stefan and Mike called their friend Brett Scallions, lead singer from FUEL, who quickly joined them and brought in heavy hitting drummer Kenneth Schalk to round out the band.
Spring Back to Vail will mark the first free outdoor performance for the 123GO! Project. Dave Matthews Band is taking 2017 off from touring and Mike McCready and Pearl Jam will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 7th. To celebrate all of this fun energy the band is working with partners JBL Professional and Martin Lighting to use the latest technology to help craft a great concert experience in Vail.
Toronto-bred, Los Angeles-based quartet MAGIC! is Nasri Atweh (lead vocals), Mark Pelli (guitar), Ben Spivak (bass), and Alex Tanas (drums). In 2014, MAGIC! scored the song of the summer with their debut single “Rude” — a buoyant reggae-pop tune that held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks, charted in 41 countries, and sold more than 7 million singles, while its video now has over 1.2 billion VEVO views. This week MAGIC! has just released 2017’s song of the summer, Girl At Coachella with Matoma ft. D.R.A.M. and cannot wait to perform the new song for fans all over the world.
