The Benedictions were formed in February of 2009 when Providence folk music veteran, singer/ songwriter G.W. Mercure decided to put together a rock n roll band. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he’d come across the likes of drummer Mike Tomasso, bass player Rob Shot, and guitar slinger Kelly Burke. He christened them The Benedictions and together they set out to
make a name for themselves on the ever mysterious Providence music scene.
