Kevin Sekhani Shows No Mercy

[Updated] Lafayette’s Mercy Brothers were a joyride through the Americana gospel songbook, playing the semi-sacred songs of Hank Williams, and singer Kevin Sekhani belted out the songs with equal parts sideshow huckster and reformed sinner. The band played with the passion of someone whose spirits were fortified with spirits, and in retrospect, it’s hard to imagine how far such a concept could have lasted long.
