Lookout: Mystix plays at Blue Ocean

The Americana roots ensemble, The Mystix, are taking their Ramble Roots Tour to Blue Ocean Music Hall on Saturday at 8 p.m.

This is the first visit to the Salisbury Beach venue by the group, who recently finished their fourth album, “Mighty Tone.”

Following their tour across country, The Mystix hopes to launch a European tour, as well.

The group has said they feel at an all-time career high as their newest album earns critical acclaim and their shows draw sell-out crowds.

Their talented line-up, Bobby Keyes, Jo Lily, Marty Richards, Marty “Bear” Ballou, and Tom West, will be joined by several special guests during the show on Saturday. Guitarist and singer/songwriter Ricky “King” Russell, who has appeared with acts such as Duke Robillard, Roomful of Blues and James Montgomery, has been touring with the group, and so has legendary Blues Harpist Jerry Portnoy.

Newburyport-based band, Liz Frame and the Kickers, will open for The Mystix, in their first appearance on the Blue Ocean stage, as well.

Blue Ocean Music Hall is located at 4 Oceanfront North in Salisbury. Admission is $25. To order tickets, visit www.blueoceanmusichall.com or call 978-462-5888.
