Hello! We are now on our Myztery ROCK the World Tour! This, for now, is a cyber tour on TikTok, Facebook, YouTube etc. Only two more videos to go and we will have completed our Myztery Parousia album. Yesterday I visited Bonsor Banquet Hall in Burnaby near Metrotown. We plan to hold our Myztery "Love is the Answer" album release concert there in the future. It seats 300 people and has a great stage.
In January we will start recording our Love is the Answer album. The first song is called LET'S MAKE SOME NOISE! and it it a total rocker song! We opened our concerts with this song during our tour across Canada from Vancouver to Ontario and our audience went wild!
Today I will perform our song Prepare the Way for our Myztery Live on TikTok and Facebook at 4 pm PST. Usually it is at 7pm PST every Thursday but we are going on a special date night today at 6 pm
Keep on Rockin!

Hello! We recently promoted our music video Weapons of Love. I wrote the song quite a few years ago after watching the news about a Palestinian suicide bomber who blew himself up in Israel and killed quite a few innocent Jewish people. Having relatives in Israel, this news greatly saddened me and I turned to the piano to express my feelings. I wrote the song very quickly.
Cyndie, my wife, plays piano. David Sinclair did the lead guitar. Gino Gerussi is on drums and Miles Foxx Hill plays bass. Mixed and mastered by Commodore Barret. The current war in Israel that Hamas started made me want to reach out to the Jewish people at this challenging time with a message of love, hope and peace. The entire world needs more love and peace. You can watch the video here: Weapons of Love
Peace and LOVE!

Hello! This image is from our Parousia album for the song Second Coming. You can watch the music video for this song on our Myztery TV YouTube channel here: The Second Coming We have two more music videos to produce for our Parousia album. The total number of videos for this album is 17. We plan to book Burnaby Hall Theatre sometime in 2024 for the screening of our album/movie. It will be a free concert!
In January we will begin recording our 6th Myztery album, Love is the Answer. Like Parousia, the album will have 17 songs! The album features an awesome solo by our lead guitarist from Chatham, Ontario, Chris Rupert. He plays on our song LET'S MAKE SOME NOISE!
Andreas Shuld will be our lead guitarist for our ROCK ballad This is My ROCK. I wrote the song way back in 1983! I completed the lyrics, however, recently. Thanks for reading and don't forget to sign up for our monthly e-newsletter, Myztery Diamonds at Myztery
KEEP ON ROCKIN!

Today is Holy Thursday. Tonight we celebrate the Mass of the Lord's Supper. The photo today is of our Myztery debut album. It was painted by Shawna Liles. I then ran it through a neon filter to create a unique effect. It shows the Heart of Jesus with the crown of thorns and the Blood and the Water gushing forth from his heart.
It shows the infinite mercy and love of Jesus for us, willing to die on a cross for us to save us from eternal damnation. At the top of the heart of Jesus is the cross, a symbol of our salvation.
Tomorrow is Good Friday, followed by Holy Saturday and then Easter Sunday, the glorious day of Our Lord"s triumphant resurrection from the dead! When we were baptized, we entered into the death of Jesus and we rose with him in his resurrection. We have been given a new life in Jesus! We wish you a very blessed Holy Week and Easter!

Tempus Fugit is one of our Myztery albums. It is a great album to listen to in this season of Lent, as it deals with Death, Judgement, Hell and Heaven. Lent is a time to remember that we will all die one day and face the judgement of God.
You can listen to it here:
Myztery Tempus Fugit
Each song is 15 minutes long. Death is based on the near-death experience of Cyndie when she was a teen. Hell is based on an experience I had about a month before I was ordained a priest in 1994.
Davide Di Saro did the video animations for the whole album and did an incredible job. May the Lord bless you as you journey this Lent towards the glory of Easter.

We have a tentative date booked for our Myztery Parousia concert at Burnaby Hall Theatre: Saturday, November 25, 2023, which is the vigil for the Solemnity of Christ the King of the Universe. This date fits perfectly with the theme of that feast day, the Second Coming of Jesus.
It will be a free concert, open to all ages. The theatre seats 120 people and has a giant screen that we will use to project 17 songs on, as well as play live during the songs on both sides of the stage. We will let you know when the date has been confirmed. We are planning to have Parousia t-shirts made as well as Myztery hats and perhaps some other merch.
We are in the process of building our Myztery Backstage group! This is a platform that allows fans of Myztery to support us in a variety of ways, participate in fun contests and much more. We will share more about this in the coming weeks and months.
Have a great day!

Hello! Roll up for the Global Cyber Myztery Tour! ;) We are preparing for our first stop at the Burnaby Hall, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, November 25, 2023, the Vigil of Christ the King of the Universe. We will show our 17 song album, Parousia, on a giant screen and play live with it. Cyndie made amazing music videos for each song on our album.
Tomorrow I will take a tour of the Anvil Theatre in New Westminster, where we are planning a Bishop of ROCK CD release concert for Saturday, September 28, 2024 (My birthday!) It seats 361 people and is a beautiful venue. We will be working with a professional production manager for the first time as a band. Prior to that we have relied on friends and volunteers for costume changes, lighting, sound, etc.
We are building a new Myztery website called Myztery Music. This will be for public schools and other venues. We hope to do a concert at the Vincent Massey Theatre in New Westminster, right beside NWSS (New Westminster Senior Secondary). I met a student from NWSS yesterday and she said we should hold a Myztery concert at that venue during school hours.

Hello! Here is a photo taken when we had our home studio in Chatham, Ontario. I had my new blue Les Paul. I eventually sold that guitar to Long & McQuade in Vancouver in order to buy my Cannon digital camera. I loved that guitar but it was a little heavy. I now play a blue Ibanez Gio with a whammy bar. I love having a whammy bar.
Last night I recorded lead vocals for our song Let's Make Some Noise! I sent an Mp3 of the song to our lead guitarist, Chris Rupert, who lives in Chatham. He will come up with a solo for the song and email it to us. We will include this song on our upcoming Bishop of ROCK album. We will record the album at The Armoury studio in Vancouver, an awesome studio (Analogue) 2 inch tape. Cheers!
