All members starting their musical careers in their teens.

Mark and Dave have been performing together in various groups since they were in their early teens. The members combined musical portfolio consist of everything from their first garage band gigs at their local school to performing in opening acts at Palace of Auburn Hills and Meadowbrook Music Theatre for such groups as, Tommy James and the Shondells, The Rascals and The Spinners.
In 2009 Marks love for the Woodstock era music, the colorful groups that were performing in venues and the entire mid 60s culture became his inspiration for his vision of Magic Bus, a group that would represent the 60s era, the music, the colorful, authentic clothing and deliver a performance that people would be able to relive their memories of the Woodstock era.

As one of the few groups in the United States offering a music performance based on the historic Woodstock era, this southeastern Michigan group consists of six musicians that incorporate in their show guitars, drums, keyboards as well as harmonicas, tambourines, flute and various percussion instruments. With their incredible instrumental talents, combined with their outstanding vocal ranges, Magic Bus can recreate all of the music that is part of musical history, the Woodstock era, from Canned Heat to the vocals of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Magic Bus is one of the only groups in the USA able to fill this void in musical tribute bands.
Magic Bus not only re-creates the atmosphere of the Woodstock era with our incredible replication of the Woodstock era music selections, but also our authentic stage presentation which consists of members fully costumed to the era, at events held in darkness, we have an colorful light show, at day light outdoor events, conditions permitting, they have our dancing Mister Cool puppet, a 13 foot tall puppet, make a appearance, a delight to the children as well as the adults.

Magic Bus had been voted into first place in the Detroit WDIV online Vote 4 the Best local band contest for three years in a row; 2011, 2012 and 2013.
