If you are a native of Louisville you may remember the Mystics performing in clubs around town. They had their beginning in 1959 and called themselves "The Fidels", one year later they changed their name to "The Mystics" and were together throughout the 60's. Besides Louisville, they also played in New York, Chicago, and Florida. During their early years they appeared with big names such as Roy Orbison and Lil' Anthony and the Imperials. They disbanded in the late 60's only to reunite again in the 1980's under a new name "Single Swingers". They played some political venues, including an inaugural ball in Washington. They remained together until 1998. This year to mark their "50th Anniversary", they have once again reunited for this special performance.

Tickets for the performance are $5. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Arts Center or on the day of the event. For more information, please call the Arts Center.
