Mercury Blonde is a nationally touring Americana/Southern Rock band based in East Nashville, Tennessee. The band was formed in 2017 when each member decided to make the move to music city to pursue a career in music and ended up finding each other through the vast network of open jams. Each member of the band is from the east and the mid-west area of the United States.
The band released their debut record “Left on Gallatin” in 2018, recorded in Coop DeVille Studios by Wes Little, where each song has its own meaning on how to approach certain life situations, past relationships, and also admitting that sometimes the best course of action is to just run away. The sounds of rocking slide guitar remind you of Derek Trucks, and the vocals give you the songwriting sense of Steve Earle. This record encompasses the sound of Mercury Blonde with their new sounds of Americana mixed with old school sounds of rock n’roll.
The band has toured across the state of Tennessee, performed on live radio for the Blue Plate Special radio show in Knoxville, they have traveled as far south as Austin, TX to play the Red Gorilla Festival, and have made their way north to play The Elbo Room in Chicago and Frankie’s Blue Room in Naperville, IL.
Mercury Blonde is fronted by lead vocalist Zach Sarapas, with Dan Wecht (lead/slide guitar/vocals), Mario Galati (bass), and Tyler Peck (drums).
This month’s History on Tap will feature Jennifer Brown and Alissa Keller who will share stories about Ten Christian Countians That History Almost Forgot. Some of these folks may have strong connections – some more obscure – but all will be interesting!
We’ve all heard about Edgar Cayce and Jennie Stuart and Ted Poston, and we’re all proud that they called Christian County home. Brown and Keller intend to focus this program on a few lesser-known individuals who made an impact here at home – and beyond. From editors to artists to midwives, this program will prove that everyone has a story to tell.
Join Hopkinsville Brewing Company as they host their very first (socially-distant) viewing party in support of Hopkinsville Rotary Club’s 70th Annual Auction!
For the third year running, they have donated BEER NAMING RIGHTS to the auction and it’s going on the board Friday night! This particular item resulted in 2018’s Peachin’ to the Regulars Peach Pale Ale and 2019’s Jung at Heart California Common. Now it’s your turn to bid on the chance to design and name an HBC original beer.
Stop by to watch the auction, grab a bite to eat from G’s BBQ and have a beer with HBC – after all, $1 from each pint sold will be donated to the Hopkinsville Community College Rotary Scholars Program.
Griffin’s Studio is excited to partner with Hopkinsville Brewing Company and offer this fun painting event! Simply email them a picture of your pet and they will have it predrawn on a 9”x12” canvas. All supplies will be provided. Payment may be made to Griffin’s Studio through Venmo or Paypal prior to the event. SIGN UP: Please message or email Griffin’s Studio to reserve your spot and send a picture of your pet
