It will be a bittersweet week for The Swackhammer Band. Mr Have Mercy - Brian Mercer - will be returning stateside. This week will see his final shows with the band.
Brian came to us at Guava Bar some years back and asked if he may sing a song or two. I believe the first one was Santeria (Sublime) which became one of his trademark songs. Since then Brian has continually developed as a singer, performer and member of the band. He has performed with us at numerous pubs, clubs and special events shows. He played big New Years shows with us: 2012 Hard Rock Cafe (Saigon), 2013 Macau Military Club (Macau SAR) and 2014 @ Amanoi Resort.
On behalf of the band I would like to say "Thank you brother. Love and best wishes to you and your lovely wife for a bright future".
So friends, fans and family - lets make this a rocking week. Come out and join the party and say "thanks for the tunes man"....one more round!!!
An International special event/club band based in Nha Trang, Vietnam. The Swackhammmer Band works with a flexible lineup of international musicians allowing a tailored program for any event. Dedicated to good tunes and good times for all.
The heart of The Swackhammer Band is the musical pairing of Tran Minh Duc (The Duke of Blues) and Erick Swackhammer. Performing together in acoustic duet for over 10 years, Hammer & The Duke put on a show that while smoothly professional, is also spontaneous and fun. Performing from a playlist spanning many styles and amplitudes, the pair are known as purveyors of some damn fine acoustic music.
The musical core of The Swackhammer Band is comprised of Nguyen Chi Thanh (bass, vocals), Tran Minh Duc (guitar, vocals) and Erick Swackhammer (drums, vocals). As "Brothers 3" Elder brother Thanh, Middle brother Erick and Younger brother Duc play in the old school format of the power trio. Classic tracks and surprising covers.
