With three original band members; founding member Sandy Yaguda (aka Deanne), original member Howie Kirschenbaum (aka Kane), and original member Marty Kupersmith (aka Sanders), plus the addition of Jay Reincke, the third and likely the best “Jay” yet, they have recreated the authentic sound of their greatest hits.

THE MYSTICS still harbor the soft breezes of doo-wop and harmony perfection – light, simple and ever so beautiful.

Today, two original members – George Galfo and Phil Cracolici look back with pride and a new day has begun in keeping those harmonies coming.

Joining Phil & George are Rocky Marsicano (formerly of Lenny Cocco & The Chimes, Jay Siegal & The Tokens, & Manhattan Skyline), and Ralph Rati, who fronted the well-known group MUSIC BOX.

To be part of the audience is an experience within itself … a trip down memory lane for all ages!
