About the Smoky Mountain Mystics

IBM Ring 58 is the East Tennessee affiliate of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. We are a local magic club that has been teaching, supporting, and pursuing the art of magic in and around the Knoxville area.  With regular meetings and a popular Magic Convention, our Ring, also known as the Smoky Mountain Mystics, provides many opportunities to grow in magic. Whether you’re a professional magician, an amateur hobbyist, or a magic newbie, we are happy to have you join our group.

Our members are of all ages and from all walks of life.  If you are interested in joining our club, you must first join the International Brotherhood of Magic, then present three magic tricks to the club for consideration.  And don’t worry – if you don’t have three magic tricks in your repertoire yet, we’ll help you!
