Melissa's blues and soul vocals stem from her enthusiasm for and embracement of life, love and music; something her audiences understand and relate to.
Chris Stovall Brown has spent the greatest part of his life onstage, often in the company of industry heavyweights like John Lee Hooker, James Cotton, Bo Diddley, Howard Tate and more recently New Orleans piano legend, Henry Butler. For many years he has led the highly-regarded Stovall Brown Band. Chris also brings his talents as a songwriter and producer to the Sweet Melissa band in addition to his musical performance style which endear him to concert and club audiences every time he takes the stage.

The Commonwealth will be back again this Thursday. These guys played to a full house last week, and they, once again, did not disappoint. Take a trip over to Grumpy's this week to check them out. You never know who you'll see or what you'll hear.
Friday, we'll have Dirty Blonde featuring Cheryl Aruda. Click on their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/dirtyblondegigs They are influenced Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin,Toni Lynn Washington, Bonnie Raitt, Sarah Vaughn, Ernestine Anderson, Robert Plant...MANY blues, funk, jazz, rock and soul musicians/vocalists.
Saturday, it's PUMPKIN HEAD TED time! Hands down, one of our favorite bands of all time. http://www.myspace.com/pumpkinheadted Acoustic, Electroacoustic, folk, reggae, whatever they play is entertaining and highly danceable.
On an entirely different note, is it me or does the Melody Tent have a few good bands playing this summer? I guess I always associated it with things like The Regeneration Tour (come on, The Human League, Belinda Carlisle, and Flock of Seagulls!?). But this week moe. (http://www.myspace.com/moe) is playing on Thursday and Friday. The on 7/18 Gov't Mule (http://www.mule.net/). And 8/2 Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew Revival (http://www.derektrucks.com/index.html) . It will be very cool to see these bands play in a small venue like the Melody Tent rather than the huge festivals. Hope to see you there!

Due to the 4th of July, there will not be a band playing this Friday. Instead of getting stuck in traffic after the fireworks, how about stopping in for a pint and a game of pinball or pool?
Saturday, Random Axe is back! More about them tomorrow...
