Thanks to all of those who helped make our October show at the Sapphire Room such a sucess. It was sold out weeks in advance, and people were lined up at the door hoping for no-shows so they could get tickets. Most of all, everbody seemed to have a great time - including the band! We hope to do another show at the Sapphire and will post it and send a message to those on our email list if it happens.

MYSTICS' 50TH: Our 50th Anniversary party was a hit in every way. Over 500 people attended, and $4,000 was raised for the Idaho Food Bank. Former Mystics Rich Smith, Tom McMeekan, Justin Bonner and Dave Robinette joined us onstage to play some tunes, and original Mystics Scott Eberhart and Dean Jackson also helped us celebrate. It was the first time some of had played music together in decades. Thanks to all for a night we'll never forget.

A MAGICAL NIGHT: It's been a few years, but we're leaving it on the site because it was magical. An all-time highlight for us was opening for British Invasion stars Chad and Jeremy at the Egyptian Theater. With Peter and Gordon, Chad and Jeremy were the most popular British duo of the 1960s. Sponsored by the East Boise Rotary Club, the concert raised $16,500 for a charity that builds desperately needed schools in Taliban-controlled countries. Boise radio icon Del Chapman opened the evening, and the Mystics and Chad and Jeremy -- two of the nicest, most talented guys you could meet -- combined for a three-hour show of music, stories and humor. Del has since passed away, so we were fortunate to have had a chance to reconnect with him. Lots of early Mystics and other friends were on hand for a night none of us will never forget.
