The Sound of Experience

The Mystics are the Boise area’s longest-running classic rock group and the only one still with an original member. The group includes some of the valley’s best classic rock musicians – Lawson Hill (28 years with the Mystics), Rico Weisman (18 years), Don Cunningham (11 years) and founding member and longtime newspaper columnist Tim Woodward. The band’s extensive repertoire includes hits from the ’60s by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Byrds, the Everly Brothers, CCR, Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young, the Lovin’ Spoonful and more. And, because audiences are getting younger, newer hits by Tom Petty and the Hearbreakers, the Traveling Wilburys, Bob Dylan, Huey Lewis and the News and others.  Make your event a hit with the sound of experience.

Sometimes it only takes one song to bring back thousands of good memories. That happened over and over last Saturday at our reunion. The Mystics’ music is always good, but that night it especially hit the sweet spot that was the mid 1960s. Thanks, guys.

Mystics Album

The Mystics CD, NOW & THEN, is available on CDBABY as well as most digital outlets. And at our gigs!

The CD includes thirteen original songs by the current band, plus both sides of the 1966 Mystics’ 45 rpm record. A local classic-rock collector’s item.

An unsolicited review of “Now and Then,” by Frank Trowbridge, session player for Bachman-Turner Overdrive and Sleepy John:

“It’s hard to keep the feel of this era of music and use all the modern technology available! The arrangements are very solid and fun to experience. Like taking a trip to the Sixties but with today’s technological advances. The Mystics are truly a great-group-of musicians. They don’t just play this style of music; they “are” this style of music. Great job!!! Loved It.”

Second Annual Mystics-Chancellors Dance Postponed!

Everyone had so much fun at the first-ever Mystics-Chancellors gig last year that we’ve decided to do another one in the ballroom of the Riverside Hotel. It will be only the second time that two of Boise’s hottest ’60s band have performed together. DUE TO COVID19 CONCERNS, THE DANCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED. DETAILS WILL BE UPDATED AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.
