Biography

The Mystix is an all-star band representing the very best journeymen of the Boston/New York music scenes, with roots in R&B, Rock and Roll and country. Recently formed, The Mystix are rapidly gaining recognition for their unique sound, featuring inspired original material and superbly crafted arrangements, as showcased in their new CD “Blue Morning”.

Singer-songwriter Jo Lily, slide/acoustic guitarist, leads the band with his legendary gritty voice and soulful delivery.

The Boston Phoenix says guitarist “Bobby Keyes evokes an entire era of classic playing” having recorded with Jerry Lee Lewis, Ben E. King, and New Kids on the Block to name a few, and has been a studio player at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals.

Drummer Marty Richards—who has played with jazz great Gary Burton; as well as Boston legends Peter Wolf and Duke Robillard—drives the band with abandoned precision.

Bassist Marty Ballou—the foundation, the bottom, and he plays over the top. His recordings with John Hammond, blues icon Jimmy Witherspoon, Duke Robillard and Roomful of Blues to name a few, affirm his place as one of the greats.

New keyboardist, Tom West, he has recorded and performed with Peter Wolf, Susan Tedeschi, Duke Levine, “Sax” Gordon Beadle, Barrence Whitfield, Duke Robillard, and many other Northeast favorites.
