Jumpin’ Joel Flash & The Magic Machine is an Ottawa-based, 8-piece powerhouse of fun.

This indie folk rock/musical theatre outfit is a sweet mix of folk and southern twang featuring opera-rock vocals, bouncy rhythms, big happy harmonies, and the occasional rain stick interlude. We create surprisingly hummable, temptingly strummable original tunes composed and performed in a manner that it is certain to make you smile. Our on-stage antics and comedy bits will make you laugh. Our lyrics will make your heart skip a beat. Our finale will make you a lifetime fan.
