Described by The Scottish Voice of New Music Jim Gellatly as "an ideal festival band with stacks of energy" Have Mercy Las Vegas gone from strength to strength following their arrival on the Scottish music scene in 2011. Their rowdy and eclectic mix of folk and blues, with a Celtic flair as a nod to their Scottish roots has earned them rave reviews of their studio material in the form of their debut EP and new single Pappy. However it’s the live performances that make HMLV stand out, where they can fully show off their range of original songs, from the foot stomping hoe downs, to the harmonious laments and after gaining notable praise for their sets at Wickerman, Haddowfest, Celtic Connections and many more they reached a high point in headlining King Tuts New Years Revolution to a packed audience, earning themselves a terrific review in national press and praise from the festival organisers.
In 2014 they have continued their impressive form, main stage appearances at Eden Festival and Live@Troon proved the bands growing stature. The band also made their debut at 2 of Scotlands best new music festivals at Brew at the Bog and The Tenement Trail whilst also notching up their second appearance at this year’s Wickerman Festival.
The band also found their way onto the TV Screens, featured as the opening act for BBC ALBA’s Rapal music series and performing live twice in the STV Studios for The Riverside Show.
Perhaps the proudest moment for the band however has been the highly anticipated release of their Debut Album “That’s Life”. The band are very proud of the final result and have been delighted by the feedback and reviews they have received so far, hoping that the release of their first full length album will push them onto bigger and better things.
