Fueled by their passion to explore beyond the edges of traditional musical boundaries and their diverse ethnic and musical backgrounds, the Alchemystics blend reggae, politically infused hip-hop, gritty soul, hard-driving rock, and pulsing Jamaican, Cuban and Trinidadian rhythms into an utterly unique and distinctively original new sound. The result is modern-day roots music with global appeal – an alchemy of ancient musical traditions; intricate, intelligent wordplay; elementally raw soul; irresistible hooks; deep, driving rhythms; and old-school vocal harmonies - fired by the Alchemystic’s unique blend of intensity, passion, and sheer artistic chemistry into a powerful, contemporary, and unmistakable sound. Mama's Boomshack opens. A 7-piece band featuring a mixture of seasoned musicians playing funk, soul, and blues, this funky ensemble been playing in and around Portland, Maine ever since. In February 2014, the band stepped into The Halo studio with uber-producer Jonathan Wyman to record our debut album. What followed was a 9-track manifesto of funky soul music. Old school funk and soul with jazz and blues influences that reaches back and looks ahead. Release for the album is anticipated for spring/summer 2014.

“...this band means business, as evidenced by its polished, dynamic, lively and funky album. My current favorite on the nine-song collection of original tunes is “Love Somebody.” With electric guitar, a mess of horns and awesome backup vocals from Brundage, the song gets it done both musically and lyrically. Regoulinsky will have you singing along before the song is over. “You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody/You gotta love somebody if we all want to get along.” I also dig the slower groove “Nothing More to Say” with the sensational Brundage on lead vocals over a bed of horns: “Walking ’round lonely streets while the sun goes down/comfort in the silence of this dead-end town.” “Speed of Soul” will have you hopping on the soul train and “Back to School” is a funky romp.”
