Missing the Mark
Regular readers not doubt remember my prolonged swoon over Mercy’s Mark when the group debuted way back when, followed by the inevitable let-down when the too-good-to-last original formation dissolved and more mediocre replacements came on board. Eventually (and predictably), the group fizzled.
Now via Facebook (h/t, JW), Garry Jones is plugging two upcoming dates for the group. Thus Jones: ”
Getting excited about two Mercy’s Mark concert dates coming up soon. It’s been almost 2 years since me and the guys sang together. Hope I remember all the words.
Jones may be getting excited, but I really wonder if anyone is or will.
I guess a smattering of concerts every few years could be what Jones meant back in 2007 when he wrote in the SN that he was pondering “exciting possibilities” for the group’s future. Who knows. JW wonders which MM this will be, the new or old/original, and speculates about whether Shane Dunlap will be involved, despite the talk of a resurgent N’Harmony II. I have no idea but the smart money would bet it ain’t going to be the original formation, whose members have largely scattered to the four winds. I’ll just have to go on missing Mercy’s Mark.Email this Post
