"Touring can get really exciting … the fans get to see the really exciting parts, you know, the shows, the lining up outside of the venues, that sort of thing. What you don’t see is a lot of hanging out and waiting for things to happen, getting to the next town, hanging out in hotel rooms."

Those words come from Magic Man founding member and multi-instrumentalist Sam Lee. Fortunately for fans, Lee and company -- frontman Alex Caplow, bassist Gabe Goodman, keyboardist Justine Bowe and drummer Joey Sulkowski -- are doing everything they can to capture every aspect of touring in an ongoing photo diary over the next few weeks. Check out the first week of photos in the gallery above.

Magic Man's tour kicked off on March 6 in Ohio and they're on the road through the beginning of April (and they also have plans to perform at Chipotle Cultivate Festival in Arizona and Middle of the Map Festival in Kansas City). You can find their complete tour itinerary here.

As we anxiously await to see what the next installment of Magic Man's photo diary will entail, make sure to get another taste of their live show with the official music video for "Tonight":
