This month, Locals Lounge is proud to present Saloon-Folk rocker Jack Mercer. Jack is a longtime figure within Vancouver's music scene, and takes the helm of the local five-piece outfit Jack Mercer & the Whiskey Bandits. Jack will bring his songs, his story, and his spirit, to our stage at the Belmont Bar.
Join us for a night of music, storytelling, and probably a shot or two of whiskey! Doors open at 5, and the show starts at 7. Entry is a suggested $10 at the door.
Where the salt spray of the Pacific Ocean meets the barroom dust of an Old West saloon, you’ll find Jack Mercer. Probably with a bottle in hand. Pioneering a genre of music he calls "Saloon Folk", Jack's songwriting seamlessly weds the swagger and style of rockabilly, the heartfelt sincerity of bluegrass country, and the high-tempo rush of rock 'n' roll.
