In an early Gig, Blue Magic played an afternoon performance for the 25th Anniversary celebrations at Prince Andrew School, causing a minor rebellion when students who were told they could not attend ignored this and turned up anyway!

At the end of June 2016 the band reported on its Facebook™ page:

Practice session last night was epic! We have some great new songs together for our next show. Also a welcome to the band for Ross Hinge’z Leo as our new drummer! Marico is gonna start showing us his skills behind the keys…

Article: Blue Magic Upload Music Video to YouTube

In May, island band Blue Magic consisting of members Cruyff Buckley, Andrew Turner, Marico George and Ross Leo uploaded their first ever music video to YouTube. They were approached by a film crew who were on St Helena at the time and who were setting up their own film company. They wanted to film something so they came to the band and asked if they could film us one night live and make a music video, said lead singer and guitarist Cruyff Buckley.

The band was filmed preparing their live show and during and after the performance of Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes. The video is now uploaded on YouTube and onto their new Facebook™ page and has multiple hits already. When you get the opportunity to have a music video you kind of want to get it out there and publicise it, bass player Andrew Turner told The Sentinel.

There is hope in the future for the band to make more music videos but the band is currently focusing on practising more complicated songs and even having a chance to try out original ones too, with the main aim to play songs which have passion. There is no limit on what we could play, Cruyff said.

The band hopes to become more popular on island and is encouraging everyone to come and watch them perform and to check out their new page on Facebook™.
