The Mercy takes to the stage in Tamworth this weekend
One of Tamworth’s most established and popular bands are set to take to Tamworth Assembly Room’s stage this Saturday in what promises to be an amazing night out (September 20th).
Every year The Mercy band performs a special charity gig at Tamworth Assembly Rooms to help raise money for local hospice St Giles. Last year they raised £2,000 and are hoping to do the same again this year. St Giles is also one of the Mayor of Tamworth’s chosen charities.
And this year The Mercy will be joined by two other bands that will be supporting them on the night: ‘The Nick Dalmedo Band’, and ‘See It On Your Side’.
Formed in 2010, The Mercy’ were born from the remnants of ‘Crawdaddy’. They boast two original members – Daniel Hatton (lead guitar & vocals), and Steven Davies (rhythm guitar & vocals), both ex-pupils of Woodhouse School, Amington. The two other current members are Peter Sherriff on drums and Neil Gordon on bass.
The band performs across the country; whether at weddings, birthdays, or clubs and town halls.
Specialising in live beat music from the late 50s to early 70s, the night will be packed with tunes from Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Searchers, Elvis and Chuck Berry to name a few. And they also cover many more recent bands in Oasis, Blur and Razorlight.
Tickets are priced at £8 and available from the Tamworth Information Centre, Corporation Street or by visiting http://www.tamworthassemblyrooms.co.uk. Telephone the box office on 01827 709618.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm and there is plenty of unreserved seating available. There will be a large dance floor to help gig-goers enjoy their night!
