The Mercy Brothers

Formed in 2011 by veteran musicians Kevin Sekhani, Mark Meaux and Garland Theriot, the Mercy Brothers blend the spiritual fervor of an old-time tent revival with the rambunctious feel of a rural roadhouse — combining the best elements of celestial and honky-tonk heaven. This unique holy hubbub hybrid, and a reputation for electrifying live shows that inspire impassioned sing-alongs, has won the band a loyal — dare we day devout — following. Sekhani, Meaux, and Theriot are anchored by the mighty rhythm section of bassist Matt Thornton and Dave Nezat, who hold down the sanctified groove.
