Mercy Beach: the name conjures visions of pristine white sand and scantily-clad lasses. Soon however, the name will conjure a new association—the all original, Michigan rock band making waves everywhere they're seen and heard. The group had been playing the Mid-West circuit for several years as The Round, before reinventing themselves as Mercy Beach in 2010. The re-imaging brought renewed focus, and their notoriety is growing with each performance. They are quickly making it known that they are a band to keep your ears to the ground for.

PleThorA

'Ferrari'

PleThorA started in Flint, Michigan in the fall of 2010 under a different name with the sole purpose of playing one show. None of the band members expected that the songs they wrote for that show would be as well received as they were, and none of could have realized the amount of fun there was to be had performing at a rock show. With songs about food, manatees, blind quadriplegic pirates, or who knows what else, the band changed their name to reflect their musical style and after a few lineup changes evolved into the high energy four piece comedy rock outfit that they are today.
