PLEASE READ – Given the COVID-19 health crisis and on-going changes to both indoor and outdoor events, Peking and the Mystics is taking a much needed vacation. Even gathering for us to rehearse and/or perform is potentially risky for us, and in the case of performing, our audiences. We want everyone to be healthy, therefore we are on a bit of “holiday”. We would rather be singing and enjoying our “vintage vocals” with your all but that is not yet possible. Check back here for updates but if you are looking for great a cappella – check out our CD page and order yourself a copy of Flame or To Go for your car or home system. Flame is also available on iTunes and CD-Baby!
One sunny day in the spring of 1973, a few Tufts University grads got together for lunch at a local Chinese eatery. The meal produced some remarkable harmony, and the rest, as they say, is history.
More than four decades later, Peking and the Mystics is still running on all cylinders. The group, which includes three original guys, is comprised of five Tufts grads who were all members — in different years, with no overlap — of the university’s acclaimed singing group, the Beelzebubs.
PATM has toured nationally and internationally (including trips to the Far East and South America), recorded four CDs, appeared on television and radio, and been featured in local and national print media. The group’s eclectic a cappella repertoire, made up of original arrangements by PATM members themselves, incorporates swing, jazz, doo-wop, and pop music of every decade from the 1890s to the 2000s.
Whether you’re planning a black-tie gala, backyard barbecue or business soiree, PATM will make it an event your guests will never forget. For information, please contact Andrew Cranin at firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail
Peking and the Mystics has had the honor of singing the national anthem at Fenway Park in 2014, 2016 and 2018!
