The Mystics are one of Boise’s early rock ‘n’ roll groups, following acts such as Paul Revere and the Raiders and the original Chancellors in the genre’s formative era. Special guests at the anniversary party will be “Jake Blues” of the Blues Brothers Rock N Soul Revue and three members of the 1966 Mystics: Justin Bonner, Rich Smith and Tim Woodward. A live and online auction will benefit the Ride to the Wall Foundation begun by Revere and Boisean Larry Leasure. Auction items will include Paul Revere and the Raiders memorabilia, the Mystics performing for a winner, a week in Mexico and more. All auction proceeds will be used to help needy Treasure Valley veterans. Sixties attire is encouraged but not mandatory. Prizes will be given for the best individual and couples ’60s outfits.
8 p.m. Saturday, May 21, Mardi Gras Ballroom, 615 S. 9th St., Boise. $10. Brown Paper Tickets. $15 at the door.
