"THE TOP ROCK DUO IN THE UNITED STATES" - GigMasters
Our 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, Norah Jones, Zac Brown Band, Jason Mraz, 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.

"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 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 or two if necessary. 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."

Dear Clifton and Burke,
Thank you, once again, for helping to make our Realtor event such a success! You both are extremely talented, very friendly and always accommodating. Each time you play at one of our events we get numerous requests for your contact information. The comments I hear over and over are "Where did you find these guys?" and "The band is fantastic!". Thank you for always knowing exactly what we need for our events. We look forward to working with you again very soon!
"Melonbelly recently played at my wedding and they were wonderful. I have received so many compliments on the band. The guys were very accommodating to our needs and created a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere by playing a variety of great music that everyone could enjoy. I can not say enough nice things about Melonbelly, they would be a great compliment to any event." -Crystal W. Lexington, SC
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!

Dear Clifton and Burke,
Thank you so much for making our most important day so relaxed and so special. We were most surprised and most grateful that you took the time to learn a song very special to us. You both helped our day to be fun, relaxed, and you added such a touch of class to our ceremony and reception. I would highly recommend Melonbelly for any event - you were easy to work with and really took the time to make sure that we heard everything we wanted. It is so nice to work with musicians who are truly interested in the happiness of their clients. Thank you so much for everything!
