Syracuse Post-Standard, Dec. 11 Review by Mark Bialczak:
Mick Mercury History: The Meteors Blues Band has traveled a varied path. After playing in various New York area blues bands, in 1989 Mick Mercury (A. D'Ambrosio) moved to Charleston, SC and began peforming in the Southeast until 2004. While there, the Meteors took top honors in the Charleston, SC and Wilmington, NC Blues Societies' contests. Appearances at the House of Blues, Myrtle Beach, and coastal nightspots from Raleigh, NC to Daytona, FL have brought some notoriety. Now in upstate New York, the Meteors are playing original blues and standards. Mick and the Meteors have most recently shared the stage with such artists as Duke Robillard and Jerry Portnoy, performing as members of the Mohawk Valley Blues Society (Utica, NY). He has also performed with such artists as Detroit Junior, Taildragger, Bruce Willis, the Zodiacs and James Montgomery. Even traveling as far as India to perform and educate about the blues, as bassist for Bernie Clarke and the Rhythm Sharks.
