Chuck Magid Kills on New Single “I Don’t Care”
The last time we checked in with Chuck Magid, former frontman for The Groove Orient from Orlando, he had just released a fine EP titled Traveling Home in November and then ran a short tour, including a rockin’ show at Crowbar in Tampa.
The EP has great music on it, and the output from The Groove Orient was excellent, but this new tune, “I Don’t Care,” might just be Magid’s best and strongest tune to date. Because this thing flat-out rocks!
Shows I Go To debuted the song July 21, and Magid explained:
The whole song is describing a love/hate relationship with music. Referring to going out and “getting love” as in going out and playing live music. But while you’re going out and getting “love,” life goes on without you back home. Music takes you away from home, your family, and loved ones, but it’s simply because you love music.
The Chuck Magid Band are: Chuck Magid, vocals, guitar; Aaron “Bucky” Buckingham, drums; Glenn Kastrinos, bass guitar; and Colin Fei, keyboards. The song was written by Magid and David Vanegas and produced by Magid and Buckingham. Arielle D’Ornellas filmed the session and shot the feature image here.
Everything is working here. Buckingham and Kastrinos are simply the perfect rhythm section for Magid, and Fei is an absolute monster on Hammond organ — WOW! And this is some of the very best singing and guitar-slinging from Magid ever. Period. Top that off with a superb video from outstanding photographer Arielle D’Ornellas edited by Magid, and this thing is pure dynamite. More, please!
