MEET MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5

[embed]https://youtu.be/_nDXS5mdvbE[/embed]

MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5 blend raging Rockabilly, sultry Blues, and toe-tappin’ Swing into a sound for fans of IMELDA MAY, BRIAN SETZER, AMY WINEHOUSE and even THE YEAH YEAH YEAHS.

M&M5 have appeared in Paris with NICO DUPORTAL and SANSEVERINO; in Los Angeles with DICK DALE, DEKE DICKERSON and BIG SANDY; and at the infamous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood with members of Quiet Riot, Cheap Trick & Kiss. And despite Maureen’s bad girl image, (captured in cartoon by Artist Adam Huntley) she is still a favorite at Disneyland, performing to 1000’s every month.

M&M5’s songs are also making quite a splash on American television, as heard on LIFETIME CHANNEL and COMEDY CENTRAL as well as network TV.

Mercury 5 History

In July 2015, Maureen became the first female music director in late night talk show history as Maureen & the Mercury 5 were cast as the house band for the new live-to-tape program, “After Dark with Julian Clark at The Second City”, sponsored by Adore FM, Spreaker Radio and Golden Road Brewing. M&M5’s single, “The Keepin’ Kind” (from the album by the same name on Swingtone Records / Universal Music Group) was chosen as the theme song for the show, which producers hope will follow in the footsteps of Second City creations “Saturday Night Live” and “SCTV”.

This is the band with the show host Julian Clark.

Band

 

2015 also marked several SRO concerts with Surf Guitar Legend Dick Dale, Ameripolitan award-winning international Rockabilly sensations, Big Sandy & His Fly Rite Boys and world-renowned Deke Dickerson.

M&M 5 draws its sound from late 50’s and early 60’s, notably inspired by rockabilly greats like The Stray Cats, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly and inimitable soubrettes Dusty Springfield, Ann Margret, Amy Winehouse and even Chrissie Hynde. .
A smash at Viva Las Vegas (VLV) 2013 – the largest Rockabilly festival in the world — Maureen & the Mercury 5 was named among the top 20 bands of 70 appearing there, with the iconic tune “What’s It Gonna Take” featured on the VLV compilation CD.

MAUREEN & THE MERCURY 5 FUN FACTS:

Opened for DICK DALE, BIG SANDY, DEKE DICKERSON (with members of The Blasters)

Toured Paris & Lyons – played in concert with Nico Duportal & Thibault Chopin, and Sanseverino at Club Balajo; sang at the wedding of soundtrack label owner JC Chamboredon (Milan Records).

Bear Records says: “Maureen Davis went from Broadway to Carnegie Hall to the big screen to your TV screen. Now she’s conquering radio airwaves with her Rockabilly Jump Swing thing and the new album ‘The Keepin’ Kind’ . A dominant Rockabilly guitar sound touching Country and Blues as well as some Swing sounds and even Mambo. One can hear influences by such female voices as Imelda May, Chrissy Hynde, and Amy Winehouse with a traditional brand of Rockabilly back beat. Vintage meets modern style, great stuff!”

HERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE REVIEWS OF THIS ALBUM 
“Very Smooth and Swinging, the boys have got some style that’s for sure.”
Del Villarreal, Rockabilly DJ Go Kat Go, Motorbilly Radio.

“From the beginning, this CD just plan sounds good: all the instruments, and the vocals, are well recorded, and in the right place in the mix. There’s an overall clarity and warmth to the sound, which really showcases the band’s sense of dynamics; it’s obvious some real thought has gone into the arrangements of the songs.”
Dave Schroeder, CD reviewer for “Western Swing Music Society”

“Your album is brilliant, one of the best of the year, will be at the top of our radio.”
Chema Valbuena, DJ Rockin’ Therapy Radio.

“With their debut record, Out Of The Past, The Palomars prove that a new generation of Canadians are just as capable of understanding these roots genres and delivering their own brand of it with authentic sincerity.”
Buster Fayte, Rockabilly Blogger (www.rockabillyromp.com)

THE BAND –The band was formed in 2011 by lead singer/steel guitarist Tom Hammel and upright bassist Ken Wilson to follow their love of ’40s and ’50s musical and cultural styles. This just seemed natural for Ken who also runs a business selling ’50s rockabilly wear and for Tom, who’s love of the steel guitar led him to explore musical styles from that era. Tom notes, “I was surprised how the band’s initial rockabilly focus led so easily to other styles that were influenced by jazz and western swing, but without losing their edge”. Part of the bands signature sound is the twin harmony lines played on steel guitar and electric guitar.

The band has been playing locally in Vancouver and has connected with local swing dance groups which was a natural connection for the band. After a recent gig with the Atomic Radio Productions Swing group, DJ J.F.Sebastian commented, “You guys knocked it out of the park and had the dance floor hopping and honky-tonkin’ all night long”. That’s in large part due to the bands swinging rhythm section with drummer Sandy McNair and bassist Ken Wilson who have been playing together in various bands for over 20 years.Spurred by the interest in the debut CD, the Palomars have released 3 singles and are working on more new material with the goal of another album soon.

“What it comes down to for us,” remarks Tom, “Is that we really dig what we’re doing, and we’ve brought a lot of people along with us on a historical musical journey. We know rockabilly isn’t a mainstream form of music, but that’s fine because it was always intended as a form of rebellion.

“The Palomars are:Tom Hammel – Lead vocals and steel guitar, Ken Wilson – Upright bass,Sandy McNair – Drums.

Late 2015 release on Rhythm Bomb Records by California based band Lil’ Mo & The Unholy Four.

LMbackJust love this description of the band from their Facebook page –Born in the death house of Parchment Prison Farm, and sired by werewolves, The Unholy Four are a quartet of hell-raising hooligans bent on giving the devil his due by making unearthly noise up and down the west coast! Santos De Leon and Randall Stanton hold down the back beat and bass fiddle, while up on six strings, “Spanish” Mike Sobieski, creates devilish licks and leads.All of this fury is caught in a catchers mitt, shines up with black tar and thrown with a wicked curve by the redneck high screeching sound of one “Lil Mo” Everett, on loan to Lucifer from the fabulous Los Angeles doo-wop octet, The Dynaflos.After sippin’ some of Grandpappys sippin’ shine and sitting on a thumbtack or two, the sound that a-comes out of the jerry-rigged amplification is a harmonious horror-fest of good old East Texas rockabilly and Louisiana swamp blues, with just a hint of Grand Old Opry on the side.WARNING: This is the devils music, liable to make young folks want to copulate in the street, or at least dance real close in dark environments. No one under 3 years of age will be admitted onto the dance floor!!!Some live performances of album tracks –
