Mercy and the Merkettes rock the Peppertree Saturday
By John Sollenberger 05/15/2014
If you’re ready to rock your socks off to the sounds of one of the most popular club bands in the area, check out Mercy and the Merkettes Saturday night at the Peppertree Grill in Sierra Madre.
The band has been honing its craft for years now, with some of the best musicians in town and a pair of angel-voiced vocalists backing the exquisite voice of Mercy Powell.
Mercy and company always pack the house on the strength of their high-energy renditions of hits from the 1960s through the 2000s, including pop, rock and soul. Their version of Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” is true to the original to the extent that you’d think it was the Queen of Soul herself.

Music starts at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Peppertree Grill, 322 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. No cover. Call (626) 355-8444 or visit thepeppertreegrill.com.
