Bio

Mystic Nights as a musical entity came into existence in the summer of 2005. They have a sound that is both contemporary and classic at the same time. With a repertoire of over 250 songs, this talented ensemble is sure to please. Band members include:

Katie Louise, Vocals and Percussion: Katie is a young, singer who has just burst on the St. Louis music scene. She had garnered praise for her powerful voice, good range and fantastic interpretations of classic rock and soul songs.

Ashley Underwood, Keyboards and Vocals: Ashley, a 29 year veteran musician, is an outstanding keyboardist and songwriter. During his time in the business he has worked with former MCA Recording Artist Mary Burns (California Radio), as well as with musicians whose musical backgrounds include Chuck Berry, Styx, Maynard Ferguson, Eddie Money, the Bob Kuban Band, Walter Scott, Reba McIntire, Albert King, the Temptations and Vanessa Williams.

Jack Ira, Guitar and Vocals: Jack has played in a variety of bands over the years, and earlier in his career worked with the legendary blues guitarist Albert King. Jack's steady rhythm guitar and fine vocals are a great addition to the band.

Bob Spitzfadden, Drums and Vocals: Bob is an excellent drummer and a talented vocalist. His tenor vocals blend well with the rest of the band, and his steady beat keeps everything together. Bob has worked with a number of artists including Chuck Berry as well as the infamous show band, The Facts of Life.

Mystic Nights has a hot new CD of 12 original songs that run the gamut from rock, to R&B; powerpop to beautiful ballads. All of the songs were written either by Katie Louise and Ashley Underwood, or by Ashley alone. Generally Katie supplies the lyrics for the songs. These plum the depths of her soul as she sings about love, friendship, living life to the fullest, overcoming life's obstacles, and the overwhelming feelings that accompany the loss of a loved one.

Katie Louise handles all of the lead vocals. Her power and range are on display throughout the CD, as her emotions come through on each and every song. Playing keyboards on the project is Ashley Underwood. He displays his skill at producing and arranging as well. Ron Sallee of the Real Band handles the guitar duties, and does so in fantastic fashion. His screaming electric guitar and mellow acoustic bring the music of Katie Louise to another level. Ron also served as the engineer on four of the songs.

Making a guest appearance on the CD is saxophonist extraordinaire Ray Vollmar, formerly of the Smash Band. All of these great artists help bring the vision of Katie to fruition.
