McMercy Family Band says
Step right up folks! You've got one night only to catch the The Hot Nut Riveters and the McMercy Family Band on the finest stage in Austin!

The Hot Nut Riveters
Believe it or not, it was over twenty years ago when Guy Forsyth, still wet behind the ears and entirely oblivious to just how crazy an idea it was, started a band who played all acoustic instruments and specialized in a strange and heady homebrew of genre and influences, and promptly began mining the deep, rich veins of American traditional and popular music forms. Call it traditional bluespop folk countrygrass. Wait, no. Call it traditional alt-bluespop folk country grass. Though his career has taken him down varied paths, including successful forays into the blues and, most recently, Americana, his love for that “old time” music and his drive to proselytize about it to whomever would listen has never been stronger.

“You can hear snatches of this music in songs on every album I’ve ever recorded. There is just something about it that is in my blood, and every now and then it just boils over and forces itself out - usually in just a song, or maybe two. This time, though, I noticed all the talent around me and it came bubbling out as this band, The Hot Nut Riveters - an all-star cast of the best players for their position that I could run down and capture and force to play.”

The McMercy Family Band
Brothers and Sisters McMercy never really thought of themselves as a band. Just friends and family that make music together. Despite that, they've been bringing their unique take on roots gospel music, 60's soul, and harmony singing to stages in Austin and beyond for the better part of a decade now. When roots music exploded in popularity not too long ago, they received a lot of comparisons to recent stars of the New West and Anti records variety. The difference? McMercy was here before, and McMercy will be here after.
