Join the Mystics as they take you on an All-American musical journey that spans decades from coast to coast.  A flavor of the 1950s New York street sounds, the Motown classics, the 1970s Philadelphia sou, the blues of Chicago, a splash of southern rock and the 1960s California beach sounds.  A little something for everyone.  Make plans now to join us at the Sumter Opera House on February 15, 2020 as they continue on their quest to keep the sounds of harmony Doo-Wop alive!.

Charleston Music Hall
37 John Street Charleston, SC 29403

By the mid-1950s, Big Bands found themselves in a changed world as Bebop took center stage. Even the Duke Ellington Orchestra, who had creatively dominated the jazz scene from the late 1920s – 1940s, found itself struggling until the historic gig at the 1956 Newport Jazz Festival. With an electrifying performance, the crowd at Freedom Park was transformed and Ellington’s career was revitalized. Sixty-four years later, your Charleston Jazz Orchestra will recreate that notable night in jazz history, one that festival producer George Wein proclaimed as “the greatest performance of Ellington’s career” and one that “stood for everything jazz had been and could be.”
