The Mystic Mafia is a fairly “new” Krewe with approximately 5 years of tommy guns and corsets! the Krewe was started by April Davidson with the intent of a “girls just wanna have fun” and today the krewe has been doing just that! With their Partner krewe Andres de Pez the Gangstas have made their presence known in pensacola mardi gras history! Winning King and Queen priscus for 2011, April, Shawn and the mafia women rule over the 2012 Mardi gras season!
Unlike other local Krewes, the Mystic Mafia is not affiliated with a charity, so they do not require their members to raise money. All of the women in the Mystic Mafia are successful,busy, socially involved and very attractive.
Many of our members were previously and other organizations, and the responsibility and commitment of being in a strictly social krewe is very appealing for our busy members. We started out with 14 members the first year and have grown steadily, but are at a of 50 members max. We enjoy this exclusive close knit group and the ease of forming those bonds when membership is limited. We currently proudly still have 5 of those founding members, the OG’s (Original Gangsters) as active members.
Unlike many other local krewes, we are not affiliated with one official charity so we do not require you to raise money, however you will see our members participating in and donating to a wide range of local charitable organizations. This participation is by individual personal choice because we are community conscious women who are active in our community, not because MM requires anyone to. There are no required mandatory events or fundraisers. We do not require anyone to attend any of our events, raise donations, earn points, volunteer to work our events or serve on committees. We are all successful, busy, socially involved women, so our krewe is strictly social. It is a place to just have positive, healthy, good “girl fun”. We are very selective with membership. We have a minimum age of 25 years old, we do not have a target number for membership, and we prefer to stay around 50 members. We have a sisterhood-like closeness only a small krewe can provide, and many friendships made here are lifelong.
Mystic Mafia gangster girls can be found at nearly every parade, Mardi Gras event, krewe ball, festival and fundraiser in the local market. Our presence is undeniable by our signature look – corsets, fedora hats & bling! For a list of our official events check the Events page of our websitehttp://www.themysticmafia.com/id3.html
If you have ever been to a parade in Pensacola, you have seen our stunning float. Roxy2, as she is affectionately called, is a 42 foot long 1956 two-tone Rolls-Royce custom built by local vendors in our red and black signature colors. Our theme is BLING so you can’t miss us! Our float comes complete with a one of a kind custom blinged potty built into the bathroom on the float. Listen for us booming as we roll with our impressive 10 speaker stereo system pumping both old-school rap and the latest hip-hop with our gangster swag!
Membership is very limited in order to maintain our close bonds. We choose new members every year in August to replace departing members.
