BAND BIO: The Mercutios are the Lower Mainland’s latest full performance rawkers to hit the Vancouver music scene. Drawing on influences like hard rock, blues rock, punk and ska, a Mercutios show is an all-out event. Their compelling songs make the audience sit up and take notice.
The Mercutios (mer-q-shee-o's) have a talent for unleashing the mad frenzy in whoever goes to see one of their shows! It would be smart to bring your Get Out of Jail Free card that night!
The Mercutios deliver the entertainment like a hurricane delivers the rain! Taking the stage and your senses hostage, the Mercutios will leave you screaming for more!
Furious vocals, assault-like guitar hooks, a smashing rhythm section and smooth melodies make for a dymamic mix.
Formed in 2005 from ex-members of Doublespeak, No Exit, Extreme Mental Therapy and the Randy Vicars, the Mercutios are a group of fast-talking, street-fighting, balls-to-the wall friends and musicians with the tools to get the job done. Since September 2005 they’ve been building on their solid fan base with shows in Vancouver, New Westminster, Delta, Surrey and Langley, showcasing their high-energy brand of rock and playing on bills with some of the region’s top Indie acts.
The Mercutios recently made their television debut on Shaw Cable's Friday Night Revolution, featuring footage of their March 2nd show at the Buffalo Club and on July 4th appeared on A New Rock Reality on Novus Cable Vancouver.
On June 30th, the Mercutios made their major FM radio debut, with an appearance on the biggest rock radio morning show in Canda: the Bro Jake Show on Rock 101.
If you only see one Indie Band this year, make it the Mercutios!
