The strong roots of Mystic Vibrations began in Jamaica and brought to the US in 1992 by Ric Williams. Credited to their name are two self released studio albums (People Get Ready and Busy Street) and one live recording (Live In Finlay Park). A busy schedule keeps the band constantly on the road touring the eastern US from New York to Florida. The band is a four-piece rhythm section of exceptionally talented musicians. The band has established a large fan base that has steadily grown over the years. Their music speaks of love, unity, peace amongst all mankind, and the trials and tribulations of oppressed people.
Mystic Vibrations has appeared at many venues over the past twelve years. These include parks, festivals, night clubs, weddings, colleges, a plethora of private parties, and television and radio performances and interviews. They have also performed with numerous reggae acts from Jamaica including Burning Spear, Yellowman, Third World, Sizzla, Inner Circle, The Wailers and Israel Vibrations...just to name a few.
They perform all the great commercial Reggae songs you know by the likes of Marley and Jimmy Cliff, but also a lot of great reggae songs you don't. You will LOVE the sound and the Island vibe this band brings to your event!
