Soulful Mystafya returns for two performances

Hometown fans will have two chances to see roots/rock/reggae band Mystafya within a week period – first at Cooper’s in Nevada City this Saturday and then Feb. 6 at the Nevada County Fairground’s Senior Center.

Mystafya’s vocals combine soul with dub poetry (Island rap).

“The fortunate thing for Mystafya is that we’re a little band from Grass Valley but we’ve been blessed to play with the world’s best reggae bands including Steel Pulse, Bunny Wailer and Toots & The Maytals,” band drummer Scott Wilson said. “Our first CD released in 1999 hit international status; we’re on the ‘Hall of Fame’ and we’ve had over 15,000 downloads in Germany, France and Italy.”

After the two local shows, Mystafya will play with the Wailers on Feb. 20 at the Radisson Hotel in Sacramento.

The Cooper’s show is from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Admission is $4 for anyone 21-and-over. Cooper’s is at 235 Commercial St. Call 265-0116 for details.

The second local all-ages show is a Bob Marley birthday celebration along with five other reggae and dancehall acts (Jah Light, Natty Congo, Biblical, I-Sheba and KAT) at the Senior Center, 11350 McCourtney Road. Doors open 5:30 p.m. followed by music at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 6. Admission is $7 general and free for children under 12. Organic food, crafts and healing vendors will set up booths at the celebration. Call 432-5400 for more information.
