|A life-long resident of Northwest NJ, Mef Gannon
has been in love with music all of her life. Being introduced to the
Beatles at a young and impressionable age, her parents had no idea it
would "ruin" her chances of having a normal adult life!|
Having experienced all forms of musical formations, her most notable success was with The Partners. The band was a local favorite during the 90s and released 4 critically acclaimed CDs. After the band dissolved in late 97, Mef embarked on a solo career. She captured the Northwest New Jersey Friends of Music Award for Best Female Vocalist in 1998.
The most current project is Mef Gannon and The Mercury Blues which boasts original, straight-ahead, rock 'n' roll with a blues edge a la Bonnie Raitt. It also features Niles Terrat on guitar and vocals, John Yeomans on drums, percussion and vocals and Lou Rotile on bass.
When not performing music, Mef can be heard spinning tunes on WNTI 91.9 FM, Centenary College radio in Hackettstown. Her popular show "The Sunrise Soiree" can be heard from 6:00AM to 9:00AM Friday mornings. The show is also cybercast on www.WNTI.org.
