Formed in 1988 and based in Westchester County, NY, The Magic Touch is widely considered to be “Westchester’s Premiere Acapella Group.” Performing the hits of the last 6 decades, The Magic Touch has something to offer music lovers of all ages. From Doo-Wop to Motown to original compositions, from Brooklyn to Rockland, New Jersey to Long Island, the Bronx to Westchester to Connecticut, the Magic Touch brings their fans back to that golden era when group harmony was king. The clean, smooth, crisp, street corner sound is reminiscent of all the wonderful vocal groups that paved the way some 50 plus years ago.
From the Primarily Acapella web site, "There are some doo-wop groups from whom the clean, smooth, crisp sound just seems to flow like a street corner water fountain...The Magic Touch...just goes to show how appealing and timeless the combination of great arranging, soaring harmonies, and classic material can be.....we have to say that these are some of the best acapella tunes we've ever heard."
Some crowd favorites of theirs include “I Only Have Eyes For You”, “House Of The Rising Sun”, “I’m Yours”, Me & Julio Down By The Schoolyard”, “The Four Seasons Medley”, I Wish It Would Rain”, “My Girl / Ain’t Too Proud To Beg”, and “Wonderful Girl” just to name a few. This classic sound is alive and well when The Magic Touch hits the stage.
The Magic Touch has perfomed with the late Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge, The Duprees, The Tokens, The Platters, and Kenny Vance and the Planotones just to name a few, along with the kings of contemporary acapella Rockapella. Whether it’s big stage shows, restaurants/clubs, fundraisers, outdoor events or private parties, The Magic Touch will always make that event a special one with their unique combination of tight harmonies, unparalleled stage presence and humorous banter.
