Our Guest Blogger today is Zambricki Li of Magic Giant and we are so appreciative of him doing this as we are huge fans of the band and actually were suppose to be seeing them live this coming Friday here in Tulsa. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will be seeing them sometime soon when we are all back in a crowded venue seeing favorite bands.

At the time of this writing we are entering the “weary heart” phase of the pandemic. The daily updates have smashed together and we’re all getting into our new, albeit temporary, lives hopefully in our homes. Our hearts turn for the delivery people, nurses, doctors, and everyone who’s job has actually gotten harder while the rest of us are in a holding pattern left to whittle away the groceries, count the eggs, and pontificate how to change up the recipe. People have been asking if we are songwriting and we are, more to keep the doors of creativity open than to try and finish a song.
MAGIC GIANT is entering our 3rd week of our Live From Quarantine festival online. To date, we’ve had amazing artists like Walk the Moon, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Plain White Tees, Allen Stone, LP, and many more come together.
The first weekend benefited MusiCares which helps get insurance and bill payments for touring crew and musicians in the industry affected now that everything has shut down.
Week 2 benefited The Frontline Responder’s Fund assisting in getting PPE’s(Personal Protective Equipment) to doctors and nurses in need. It’s something we really look forward to and getting to connect with our friends and fans in a live setting every weekend is really uplifting. We always end with a dance party. A bunch of people all in their home dancing alone, together, is a beautiful thing.
