Seeking musicians to join a recently re-formed band that has been performing monthly and, hopefully, with greater frequency very soon.
The group is called THE MERCENES. I describe the sound as MUSICAL PORTRAITS AND CINEMATOGRAPHY OF THE SOUL. We like songs with strong stories, melody and harmony, simple chords and steady beats. In addition to original songs, we've been doing mini-sets of Johnny and June Cash, The Velvet Underground, Buddy Holly, Glen Campbell and country gospel artists.
