RatsMagic's "All the Addicts" Tour

January
Sat 24th: 8:00pm

RatsMagic is a group of driven, talented and dynamic young musicians who started jamming together in March of 2012 and took out the National Battle of the Bands competition in September. Their music is an original and refreshing fusion of blues, funk and rock executed with outstanding musicianship and crazy raw energy. Based in Auckland, the group members are Kriston Batistich (vocals and guitar), Meghan Glue (vocals, percussion, violin, mandolin), Mike Murray (bass and vocals) and Olly Robinson (drums and percussion).

The band has experienced a wave of success in 2014, winning The Audience Wildcard funding in February with which they released a song and video for their track 'You Got Me So'.

To celebrate 2014 and kick off another great year, RatsMagic will be heading to the best holiday spots in the Upper North Island this summer.

The tour follows the recent release of RatsMagic's track 'All the Addicts', a song that celebrates the creatives of the world and their addiction to their craft.
