WINNERS OF BEST REGGAE/ SKA ACT AT THE 2012 & 2013 SOUTH WEST MUSIC AWARDS!!!!
This musical army conquered festival crowds all over the UK fusing big fat doses of Ska and Funk with lashings of Swing, Blues and Hiphop in a way totally unique to the band. Throw in some infectious grooves from all over the world and you got a massive bouncy sound that you just couldn't help but dance to.
2015 was the tenth anniversary of the first Melosa gig (an acoustic set upstairs in the globe pub in Exeter) and after ten years of playing festivals, recording and general debauchery the band decided it was time to hang up the Melosa name and call it a day after their final gig in the Bimble Inn at the Beautiful Days festival.
All previous recordings are still available via Woodengun Records and some of the band have gone on to form the awesome King Sub so head over to their page for live dates and new music!
Some Previous Gigs:
Boomtown Fair, Beautiful Days, Sunrise Celebration, Beachbreak, Moorfest, Over The Moon, The Eden Project, Chagstock, Aeon, Budstock & support slots with Toots & The Maytals, Sly & Robbie & Jazz Jamazica to name a few!
