Magic Dick & Shun Ng
Magic Dick, the legendary harmonica player for the J. Geils Band and guitar sensation, Shun Ng are one of the most amazing musical acts to come out of Boston in a long while.
The music is soulful blues, rockin' yet thoughtful. Performed by arguably two of the top musicians at their respective instruments, this show is dynamic and unique. Magic Dick has toured the world playing with some of the top names in the business as well as blowing away clubs and stadiums with the J. Geils Band since 1969. He explains the formation of the duo: "From the moment I first heard Shun Ng's CD "Funky Thumb Stuff" I knew that a manifest musical collaboration was about to happen. Shun's sound simply made me feel very alive and induced in me a synchronous alignment of musical DNA as if it was his intention as well as mine all along! A long and enlightening conversation happened on that day of our first meeting and now we are a duo and I couldn't be more delighted."
Shun Ng was born in Chicago, raised in Singapore now based out of Boston. At 27 years old, he is already an international star, a soulful, world-class guitarist, vocalist, and electric performer who in a short period of time, has caught the attention of the top players in the music world including Quincy Jones who said: "When you see Shun Ng, you won't believe your eyes nor your ears - he belies all stereotypes, all premonitions. I was simply blown away by both his soul and his science - his creativity and his uniqueness is astounding.
Shun says, "We wanted to make music in a way that no one had quite done before while remaining grounded in our roots. Magic Dick brings a powerhouse attack with ferocious precision and a killer groove to this duo. I have great respect for him, he has seemingly done it all, but is still constantly trying to push the boundaries of music and chase the best in himself, a true artist. To be working with a true Boston legend is a real privilege."
