WINNERS OF BEST REGGAE/ SKA ACT AT THE 2012 & 2013 SOUTH WEST MUSIC AWARDS!!!!
This musical army has conquered festival crowds all over the UK fusing big fat doses of Ska and Funk with lashings of Swing, Blues and Hiphop. Throw in some infectious grooves from all over the world and you've got a massive bouncy soundthat you just can't help but dance to.
2015 is the tenth anniversary of the first Melosa gig (they played as an acoustic four piece to a packed room upstairs in the Globe pub, Exeter) so it's going to be a year of celebration with loads of gigs all over the place, a new album (new songs are being written & plans are being made as we speak!) and loads of other tenth birthday stuff!
In true melosa fashion the party kicked off nice and early with the release of the new single 'Little Bit Of Heaven' backed with the jungle book-esque swing track 'Monkey Uncle' which has been going down a storm at recent gigs and will also feature on the new album.
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!
