The Music & Magic was an elite singing group that dominated the live concert circuit in the Philippines during the '80's spearheaded by Jet Montelibano as lone male vocalist, Kuh Ledesma as lead singer, drummer Nonoy Mendoza and keyboardist Toto Gentica. Completing the group then were vocalists Fe de los Reyes, Eva Caparas, Angeli Pangilinan, with Butch Elizalde (on lead guitar) and Hector Pedero (on bass). Vocalist Vicky Sevilla later took over from Angeli while Bobby Taylo took over from Hector and Jeannette Casuga from Toto Gentica.

L aunched in 1979, it didn't take very long for Music & Magic to become a most in-demand singing group back then. They became regular performers at Regent of Manila's prime watering hole The Alibi Bar and in their first year was awarded 1979's Most Promising Group by the Aliw Awards Foundation.

Jet, Fe and Eva continued with the group after the successful solo launch of now pop diva Kuh Ledesma. Music & Magic traveled abroad extensively and was featured in many of Kuh Ledesma's sold-out performances at venues such as Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and Carnegie Hall in New York in addition to conquering the night scene through extended stints in Singapore and Malaysia. The group disbanded in 1986 to pursue solo careers and in 1996 performed with Kuh in a sold-out 6-night reunion series at the Music Museum.
