Wednesday Bi-Weekly Live Music

Featured Artist: Brooks Milgate!

Brooks Milgate, a current employee of Mercantile Center tenant, Reliant Medical Group, has been playing the piano for as long as he can remember. He was born into a musical family and received formal music lessons from a young age. This was tempered with informal music lessons from his father which taught him about rock and roll, blues, and most importantly how to accompany his father’s extended guitar solos! He attended the visual and performing arts program at Booker High School in Sarasota, FL and continued studying music at the University of South Florida, ultimately transferring and graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2005.

Since then he has played countless gigs, most recently playing with Ana Popovic as her touring keyboard player. As a solo performer he tends to gravitate towards old rhythm and blues, with a special affection for the piano styles of New Orleans, but he has an appreciation for all music and styles.
Brooks is thrilled to be playing Wednesday bi-weekly at the Mercantile Center Lobby during May from 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM.
Do you want to perform in our lobby? Please reach out to for inquiries! Thank you.

Please Continue To Play The Piano!

The 2018-2019 Season has brought our beloved Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins back into their respective Playoff series to take another shot at the title for the 2019 NBA Championship and NHL Stanley Cup Trophy.

See the below schedules, as we all cheer on the Bruins and Celtics in their respective 2nd round Playoff battles.
Last year, the Boston Celtics made it to the 3rd round of the NBA Playoffs, suffering a bitter defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Boston swept the Pacers in the first round of the Playoffs, and are currently 1 - 1 in the second round series vs. the Milwaukee Bucks.

For the 2018 Bruins, their post-season ended early in the 2nd round against the Tampa Bay Lightning, with a devastating series loss of 1-4. Can the Bruins turn things around and prevail during the 2nd round of this year's Playoffs against the Columbus Blue Jackets? Currently the Bruins are down in the series at 1 - 2.

We want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of our Mercantile Center Mothers!

During National Women's Health Week each year, millions of women take steps to improve their health. The week serves as a reminder for women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Women’s Health leads National Women’s Health Week to encourage all women to be as healthy as possible.
