"THE TOP ROCK DUO IN THE UNITED STATES" - GigMasters
The 2008 RISING STAR AWARD WINNER, Melonbelly specializes in providing the highest quality live music for private parties, weddings (receptions, rehearsal dinners and ceremonies), and corporate events. Shows feature intricate guitar, vocal harmony, harmonica and percussion to a huge variety of songs from Motown, oldies, beach, country, bluegrass, blues, classic rock to modern day hits: Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, The Temptations, The Beatles, Otis Redding, The Allman Brothers, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, Dave Matthews, U2, Jason Mraz, Zac Brown Band, Norah Jones, Green Day, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson and many others. PLUS... DJ and MC SERVICE ARE INCLUDED AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Melonbelly performs for events of all sizes: from intimate dinners to large outdoor concerts. Many clients appreciate that Melonbelly does not take up very much space and is easily able to control their volume level so that guests can still have a conversation without trying to yell above the music. This makes Melonbelly a good fit for smaller venues where a large band would not be appropriate.

RECENT CLIENT TESTIMONIALS: 'We LOVE the band! Where did you find them? They are perfect! Where can we buy their CD? Oh, and by the way, your wedding was beautiful.'…These are just a few of the comments we heard at our March 25 wedding reception, and we still have guests emailing us with similar remarks to this day! From the moment we talked with Cliff and Burke and listened to their music, we knew we had found our guys! They have such a huge repertoire of songs, and they even offered to learn a song for my first dance. They were extremely professional, yet laid back and went out of their way countless times to make sure we felt relaxed and at ease. More than anything, Cliff and Burke are extremely nice guys who genuinely cared about making our wedding day special.' - Brandon and Tracy T. Seven Lakes, NC
'Our corporation consists of a versatile group of people. We vary in range, ethnicity, and music preference. The music selection and entertainment couldn't have been better in that it was enjoyed by everyone. From the cocktail hour to dinner and dancing, the positive feedback was resounding. Thank you for helping to make our corporate party such a success. We would recommend you without giving it a second thought.' - Cheryl T. Service Partners of The Carolinas
Melonbelly was the ideal duo for our fundraiser. Burke and Clifton are entertainers, great musicians and sing in wonderful harmony. What a bonus that they were personable and professional. They were attentive to the variety of guests attending the fundraiser and their music selection was perfect for the crowd. Melonbelly was really a brilliant addition to the fundraiser this year. I have shared contact information for Melonbelly numerous times since the fundraiser and look forward to working with them and/or seeing them perform again. Any event, any occasion---Burke and Clifton will impress your guests.

We just wanted to take a minute to thank you and Clifton for a
wonderful day last Saturday. So many guests asked where we found you
and had many nice things to say about your talent. Everyone thought
you both were great. We also appreciate the fact that you were so
flexible and just willing to go with the flow. The entertainment at a
wedding reception is so important and can make a huge difference in
whether or not the guest have a good time (the alcohol doesn't hurt
either). But really, I can't thank you both enough for being so great
and for contributing to the success of the day. If you ever need a
reference for other brides feel free to send them my way. We only
have good things to say. Thanks again and have a great week!
-Jenny and Greg
Chi Psi really appreciated the music that you provided for our Alumni Weekend celebration. The acoustic music was especially appropriate for the event, and was very entertaining. You guys are extremely talented, and will certainly use you again in the future. Thanks! - The Brothers of Chi Psi Fraternity, UNC-Chapel Hill.

Birthday Party (Adults) in Charlotte, NC on 05/30/2005
"Cliff and Burke were polite, personable, knowledgable, and willing to set up at our instruction for our son's 16th birthday party. They involved the audience, were flexible in their choice of music, and made it a great experience, one that we would repeat without reservation.
For those interested in a more acoustic, cerebral, and artistic performance, rather than a loud brash of rockers, one couldn't ask more. "
