“A whirling sound that sits somewhere in the space between Jazz and Popular music”
– Steve Mead, Director of Manchester Jazz Festival
“Mercury always engage. Energetic grooves mixed with warmth and lyricism – a perfect combination”
– Gwilym Simcock
Formed out of a bunch of music students from RNCN, Mercury performed their first gig at the Manchester Jazz Festival back in 2012. Here they were discovered by a group of organisers at the legendary Kings Place in London, who were so impressed by the group’s sound that they invited them to play at King’s Place itself, propelling the band into a new level of recognition.
