RISING STAR AWARD WINNER, Melonbelly Acoustic Guitar Duo specializes in providing high quality live music for private parties, weddings (receptions, rehearsal dinners and ceremonies), and corporate events.

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 absolutely loved having Melonbelly for our wedding band! They are so laid back, easy to work with, and accommodated all of our requests. They played beautiful acoustic music for both our ceremony and reception, but they were able to pump up the volume and get the crowd into it later in the night. We couldn't have asked for anything more and are so happy we chose Melonbelly for our wedding!

The Melonbelly band was absolutely amazing! They were able to provide both pre-recorded music and live music throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. These guys were professional, responsive, and were able to accommodate our requests with ease. They kept our dance floor full with a great mix of music that got all the generations out there. You can’t beat live music!

I work in the wedding industry and had worked on several weddings with Melonbelly and loved them! When my sister was planning her wedding, I suggested that she look into hiring them. She researched and then contacted them after loving their music. Clifton and Burke are wonderful musicians and great people. They are easy to work with, very professional, and go along with things very well when plans change or details are added. All of the guests (young and old) loved their music, and they are also very good at announcements/intros/etc. We were so appreciative of everything they did and we highly recommend them!

Melonbelly did such an amazing job for our wedding. They did the ceremony and reception music and added to the quaint feeling we were going for. Our wedding wouldn't have been as perfect as it was without them. We had many of our guests come up to us and tell us how much they loved the band. They learned how to play our first dance song ( just a few weeks before the wedding) and did an awesome job. Not only are they great at what they do they are great people to work with too. Thanks again Melonbelly :-)

Melonbelly was the perfect fit for our mountain wedding reception! They are amazingly talented, played all the songs we love, and they were a pleasure to work with. The energy and flow of our reception was simply perfect, thanks to them. It was so nice to not have to worry about this aspect of the evening. We knew that they had everything under control, and they delivered an above and beyond performance. The only thing I would change is to have had them play longer!

Burke and Cliff were amazing! They performed our ceremony and reception music; could not have ask for better. Our vineyard wedding and wine-bar feel for our reception was spot on with Melonbelly. Everyone was able to enjoy the music and have conversations without yelling. It was perfect. These guys are the professionals and choosing them you will not go wrong!

Thanks

Clifton and Burke are Class A fellows. They provided both the ceremony as well as reception music for our outdoor wedding. We were looking for a balance between good, fun music for people to dance to, but something that would allow relaxation and conversation for others. Melonbelly hit the nail on the head! We gave them very little guidance as far as the type of music we wanted for the reception. With the rest of the planning we had going on, we left it all up to them, and they were spot on. You will not meet a nicer couple of guys, or find a more talented duo. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had them part of our day.

Thanks,
Jenna and Andy
