    House of Blues Stage in the Voodoo Garden

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.
