Changing our offerings

Over the last 8 years at Mercy we have tried to change our offerings up so that our guests have an opportunity to have different experiences as often as they choose to join us.

Mercy now offers live music every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. We are excited about our Sunday night music. It takes on a more mellow tone and our performers play from 7:00-9:00 pm, making it an early night. We know you have to get up for work or take the kids to school; so this is a great way to end your weekend and simply chill with a glass of vino and listen to some mellow live music.

This also gives us an opportunity to showcase some new local talent. This week we had Max Lewis perform. Max is 13 years old and is signing a record deal with Sony records. He is an amazing young talent. I liken what he does to an early Johnny Lang or Bob Dylan. If you like blues from the ‘30’s- 50’s, you won’t want to miss this talented young man.

Twice a month we feature Don Brown and Bob Reister or Don and Wild Rice (as Don likes to call themselves!). These guys are fantastic guitarists in their own rite and play sultry bluesy tunes. Many original pieces that Don has written as well as their own cover versions of Kenny Rogers, Neil Young, and Chris Kristofferson. And…………….. yours truly has the privilege to sit in and play with these guys twice a month. As music has been one of my passions, I have been fortunate to have recorded in Nashville and release 2 cds over the past several years. I get the honor to sit in with Don and Bob and do a few of my tunes throughout the course of the night. It is a fun time for all.

Can’t think of a better way to end your week than coming to Mercy, enjoy a glass of wine and listen to some good music. Stop by and see us. We’ll save a seat for you!!!
