  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$1500 - $10000 per event
Magges has a rich, traditional sound that includes traditional Greek pop songs from the 1950'/60's to obscure "rembetika" songs that were outlawed in the 1930's/40's. Lead vocalist and first bouzouki player, Kyriakos "Chuck" Metaxas, is the son of Evangelos Metaxas (the original, founding member of the legendary Trio Bel Canto). Chuck honors his father by playing the dimotika and laika songs that he learned from his dad.
Magges is available for weddings, baptisms, dinner/dances, etc. and for all your Greek dance needs: kalamatiana, syrta, zembekika, tsamika, tsiftetelia, hasapika, hasaposervika, ipirotika, kritika, karsilamas, aftalika ...
Magges is Greek slang for "real cool dudes" ... they have a wild exuberance and unbridled passion that everyone should experience at least once; they're that good. The new generation of Greek-Americans are discovering Greek's finest export: its music. Magges typically plays a 2 hour club act and up to 4 hours for private functions with a wildly danceable mix of traditional Greek music from the past several decades that include big major-key arenaesque ballads and long dance numbers burning with chromatic fire. Frontman Chuck Metaxas plays bouzouki and is often accompanied by five bandmates (a 2nd bouzouki, an acoustic guitarist, a violinist, an upright bassist and a percussionist).
Many of Magges' songs utilize unorthodox time signatures and turn on the drop of a dime, but the band tackles the changes effortlessly. Even to foreign ears, several of the songs are recognizable.
If you're interested, Magges can bring along a clarinet and/or a bellydancer for added fees. And if you're really looking to impress your guests, ask us about Evangelos Metaxas' availability .....
