We had a MASSIVE vote for the June featured Band/Artist and had quite the battle, but in the end, Gathering Mercury, remained on top and won the vote!

This vote reached over 46,000 people, had over 2,200 votes, over 230 Likes, and had over 230 shares!  It went so crazy, folks are still voting!!!  Four bands received more than 140 votes each (The Broken Lights, Horlet, Chambers of Chaos, Black Cloud Syndrome) and the top two bands each had over 500 votes (Curse of Cassandra and Gathering Mercury)!  We also had several bands reaching at least 50 votes (In The Cut, “Good English”, Gin-Soaked Angels).  For such tremendous voting effort, Music  Connection will be giving a shout out during June to all the bands receiving at least 50 votes, with special attention to our top 5!

The local support was phenomenal, which means Dayton’s music scene had a tremendous reach in the last week of May!  Music Connection is proud to be a part of that connection!  With that in mind, I’m proud to introduce the June Featured Band and tell you a few cool things about Gathering Mercury:

* They ROCK! Everything about this act is really stellar! If you like rock and haven’t been to one of their shows, you’re really missing it!

* They’re fronted by killer young female vocalist/songwriter, Ashley Stacy, who also plays guitar!
* Their drummer, John “JJ” Mangold, is a budding phenom on the drums providing some mind-blowing performances!
* Quique Bucio’s infectious energy and tasty bass licks are always one of my favorite parts of their shows!
* Their newest addition, Mark “The Ogre” Burris, on lead guitar has been an excellent match with the group’s talent level and overall style!
* They released their 1st album, Where The Others Go, in July 2012 to great reviews, and they are hitting the local scene and building a great following! Check it and get it here:

Music Connection will be supporting Gathering Mercury during the month of June with cover photo promotion, a review of their music, multiple “shout-outs” during the month about their upcoming activities, and tons of song plays!  I hope you’ll stop by and connect with them!
