VERO BEACH - Three emerging Vero Beach teenage bands will showcase their talents Friday at Downtown Friday's "Summer in the City" on 14th Avenue in Vero Beach.

Middle school student groups Mercury and Urban Warfare will recreate the sounds of the late 1950 and '60s with their pop and classic rock, respectively, and the high schoolers of Emanon will entertain with their own style of modern rock.

"Mercury was only formed last November, and they've already done 11 shows, including two fundraisers for the March of Dimes," said their manager, Steven Haight. "Downtown Friday will be their biggest event yet." Haight's son, Donnie, is a band member, and has written more than a dozen of the group's 60-song repertoire.

Urban Warfare was born earlier this year in the garage of Ken George's suburban home. "My wife bought our son, Zack, a set of drums, and other neighborhood kids showed up with guitars and started fooling around," he said. "Before we knew it, we had a five-piece band."

George, who books the band's performances, said two female high school students have been added as vocalists.

Months-old Emanon - "no name" spelled backward - appears regularly with Mercury, and also is managed by Haight. "We started out with only four musicians," he said. "We added a vocalist who was performing as a separate act at a talent show at Vero Beach High School."

Downtown Friday will begin at 3:30 p.m., two hours earlier than usual, and one block north of the traditional venue. Children will be able to enjoy animals from Busch Wildlife Sanctuary, water slides, tours of an ambulance and fire truck, bounce houses, sand art and other activities.

Merchants will display their wares at Christmas in July in the Heritage Center, and The Johnny K Band will play until 5 p.m. Moonshadow will take the stage at 6 p.m., and the three teenage bands will share the time slots of 5-6 p.m. and 7-7:30 p.m.
