However, more notably there were multiple references to the King of Pop; including “Smooth Criminal” teases, an instrumental “The Way You Make Me Feel”, and a “Billie Jean” jam all encapsulated into improv sections of the set.Listen to the instrumental cover of “The Way You Make Me Feel” here.Next up for Magic Beans is their Hallow-Bean run at The Fillmore in Denver, Schmiggity’s in Steamboat Springs, and Barkley Ballroom in Frisco.
