Ben Spivak

In-Person Only

Ben Spivak has always loved playing in bands. Most notably he is a member of Canadian pop-reggae band Magic! who have achieved an astounding amount of worldwide success since their breakout hit “Rude,” which spent 6 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went to #1 in over 40 countries around the world. A look at some of their accomplishments include awards (2x Juno winners, SOCAN award, ASCAP and BMI awards), talk show appearances (Kimmel, Fallon, The View), TV Specials (Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve), Awards shows (American Music Awards, Juno Awards, Latin Grammys), collaborations (Wyclef Jean, Shakira, Marc Anthony, Sean Paul), hit songs (“Rude,” “Lay You Down Easy,” “No Way No,”), festival performances (Pinkpop!, Rock in Rio), as well as touring with Maroon 5 and most recently earning over a billion streams on Spotify and over 2 billion on YouTube.
But when Magic! and the rest of the world got put on hold in 2020, Ben began releasing his own music. He has released 5 singles including “Come A Day,” “Energy From The Past,” “Older,” “Angel Fire” and "Never Got To The Light." During the lockdown, Ben and his band were asked to play at Hollywood’s legendary Hotel Café as a fundraiser for the venue. While the room was empty, the performance was live-streamed and watched by fans all over the world.
Ben also used the lockdown period to find new ways to connect to fans. He began his "Lazy Sunday Live Stream" on YouTube where he would play acoustic versions of his own songs, old and new, as well as perform some of his favorite songs by other artists who have inspired him throughout the years.
Equal parts Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac and Allman Brothers, classic bands who put just as much love into 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.
