They have opened up shows for Oteil & the Peacemakers, Aerosmith, Buddy Guy, John Mayall, Soul Asylum, Styx, Bad Company, B.B. King, George Thorogood ,Z.Z.Top, Kenny Wayne Shepard and Jimmy Buffet, just to name a few.

The band has a sound that mixes a variety of styles to rock any and all audiences. From a festival to a roadhouse, this is a band that rocks with passion. We hope to let you experience this first hand very soon. The year 2004 has them doing acoustic shows in various formats to go along with inspired electric offerings.

Perseverance pays for No Mercy Band
Posted on Saturday, June 28, 2003 - 09:46 PM

NW Indiana Times, January 2003

Aspiring bands looking to make a name for themselves might want to follow No Mercy Band's lead. Nearly five years ago, the band hounded Chicago's House of Blues for a spot on its itinerary. When nothing panned out there, it sent the venue another press kit. Then another. Then another.

"I sent press kit after press kit and calling them back and calling them back, and it finally paid off," said No Mercy Band guitarist Pat "Lefty" Collins. "I want to push the envelope and see how far we can go, but our main goal in this band is to have fun and put on a good show."

Performing at the House of Blues Saturday as well as Chicago's Hard Rock Café Wednesday, perseverance has been a winning factor for the south suburban-based band. Formed in 1993 under the moniker No Mercy Blues Band, Collins, who lives in Tinley Park, Ill., joined the band approximately two years later, and is the blues-rock outfit's senior member.

Rounding out No Mercy Band's lineup is bassist Pete Vancura and his brother, guitarist John Vancura, both from Worth, Ill., and its newest member, Chicago-based drummer Angel Murrilo, who joined the band last October.
