Will Magid & Alligator Spacewalk
A wildly charismatic trumpeter with a global musical vision, Will Magid has earned a devoted following with his Bay Area concert series World Wide Dance Party, a moveable musical feast serving up celebratory sounds from around the world. More than a horn player, Magid is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ who laces his live performances with electronic loops and samples, seamlessly blending original music with an international sonic palette. He debuts Alligator Spacewalk at the YBG Festival, a singular ensemble including Adam Theis on horns, Shaina Evoniuk on violin, Kevin Wong on B3 organ and synths, Zebuel Early on guitar, Paul Oliphant on drums, Enrique “Quique” Padilla on percussion, and vocalist Ezekiel McCarter. Together they form what Will describes as “a sonic journey through time and space blending 1920s jazz, French Impressionism, funk, and global sounds.”
