His passion and love for MCM has become a part of his core being and has played a huge part in his development as a musician, as well as his personal spiritual journey. Throughout his tenure, Mystique has exposed Angelo to a vast amount of knowledge and alluring energy, he is absolutely ecstatic to pass it on to his fellow brothers and sisters of Music City Mystique.

Logan Gott and Jonathan Beavers both marched in Music City Mystique’s bassline from 2012-2015 and will be joining the battery instructional staff.
