Friends and guitarists Ryan St. John and Paco Higdon decided to form a band in 2007 with a drum machine. However, when the drum machine was placed in front of the drum set, it proved to be unresponsive. Ryan's cousin Steven Nagle and Paco's brother James Higdon were then added on drums and bass, respectively, to form Magic Firewater. Since the band's first show on May 17, 2008, in Ryan's backyard, the band has gone on to play many venues in Michigan, including Modern Skate and Surf, AJ's Cafe, multiple parks in Birmingham, the Eagle Theater, and Clutch Cargo's.
