Buddy McNeil and the Magic Mirrors

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Genre: Rock

Inspired by the rock 'n' roll of the 1950s and the rhythms of the 1960s, this Montréal group took its name from an obscure American singer-songwriter who, in 2006, bequeathed to the band all the songs in his vast repertoire. In 2008, Buddy McNeil & the Magic Mirrors immortalized part of their Texan "godfather's" oeuvre on a demo. Two years later, they released Help Me Mama!, a vinyl record containing four titles, three of which were their own renditions of hits by great rock 'n' roll artists of the past: Cry, Cry, Cry, by Ritchie Valens; Maybe Baby, by Buddy Holly; and A Teenage Moon, by Big Bopper. In spring 2011, following several memorable stage appearances at a number of bars and festivals, the group put out its first real album, Introducing Once Again.
