MaxxMusic & The Evening Muse present...
An Evening with Pacifico frontman Matthew Schwartz + Magic Mike!
3227 N. Davidson St.
Doors 10:30 PM
True, it is the musical journey of singer/songwriter Matthew Schwartz, but Pacifico is more about the music than one person. Pacifico started in the summer of 1999 and since has gone through many changes but has always remained a solid outlet for great music. Through their releases, from the 2000 "Still On Hold" (produced by the acclaimed Matt Goldman of Copeland & Underoath fame), 2001's "Split EP" they did with Copeland (both produced by Matt Goldman of Copeland & Underoath fame), to the 2006 release of "Anthology" a collection of their best songs and unreleased gems (produced by Mark McClusky, and Jeremiah Edmond of Manchester Orchestra) and the "Facedown EP" (a stripped down showing of Matthew's singer/songwriting skills, produced by Brandon Swafford) to finally "Thin Skin & An Open Heart" (produced by Jason Martin of Starflyer 59 / Fine China fame with preproduction by Robert McDowell and Jeremiah Edmond of Manchester Orchestra) Pacifico's long anticipated debut full length record is packed with a punch of personal yet catchy tunes.
Having previously been featured on MTV, FUSE, a Subway commercial and Billboard.com, they continue to push through the music scene playing 100+ shows a year. But the music doesn't stop when the show is over, when not on stage recording and writing are continuously in motion for this band. Pacifico is a true offering in amazing songs, great shows and an honest look into the heart.
Magic Michael Casey
Michael was born in Baltimore, Maryland and during his upbringing often times found himself in gifted classes. During the 1980's his family moved down south when his father enlisted in the Marines to help his struggling family. It was during this time that Michael found the mystery, beauty, and magic that is the south.
During his academic career at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and a strange series of events, Michael found his way into magic and he has not looked back since. Spending several years studying magic from the US, England, and even Japan. During this journey, he has found his own unique style of magic.
Michael started his professional magic career in 2002 serving as the house Magician for Maggiano's Little Italy in Southpoint, the house magician for The Mellow Mushroom on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh, and he now resides as the featured entertainment at The Crunkleton on 320 West Franklin Street. Michael has quickly become one of the most sought after magicians in the triangle area for his unique and organic style of magic.
As word of his magic has spread, he has been hired to engage audiences all over North America. From Vancouver, to San Francisco, to Chicago, and Boston, just to name a very few, he has become a staple in Corporate Cocktail hours and exclusive After Parties. Michael has performed exclusive magic for American Express and Yep Roc Record and he has even shared the bill with such musical acts as Faster Pussycat, LA Guns, Unknown Hinson, The Rosebuds, American Aquarium, and many, many more.
