The band "Misty"

From humble beginnings in Sri Lanka, Misty, led by Rajitha has risen to international stardom in a few short years. The band has earned music industry accolades from around the world for their musical talent and live performances. Misty has performed all over the world dazzling audiences from young and old with their own style of music.

It all began in 1997, when Rajitha started his music career performing at a luxury resort in Giravaru, Maldives. Later, he returned home to Sri Lanka in 1999 and with his colleague started to play at various clubs in Colombo, Sri Lanka. He became an instant success.

Rajitha is known by his fans and music aficionados as a musical Ambassador and an artist who is at ease in performing songs in any genre of music, especially, R&B, rock, pop and dance. The next major transition of Misty came in 2001 when he expanded the duo-outfit to a fully-fledged six piece band. Since its expansion, Misty’s has become the most sought after bands in Sri Lanka as well in the expatriate Sri Lankan community.

In addition, to being one of the most popular bands in Sri Lanka, Misty has performed at various premier locations around the world. Notable performances were held at "Festival De Cannes" in France, 2004, the annual Cricketers Ball in London, 2003 and 2006, Festival of Cricket in London 2006, ITB Berlin (Internationale Tourismus-Börse Berlin), the world's largest tourism trade fair in 2004 and 2005 and Trafalgar square in London 2006.

This will be Misty’s second visit to Houston, Texas and will wow the crowd with their own brand of toe tapping music that will definitely keep the audience on their feet. Mistycal Night will be one of the premier musical events in 2018. Misty is also performing for a great cause and has promised to do a spectacular show that will be remembered to be one of the greatest shows by a Sri Lankan band in Houston, Texas.
