We had Melonbelly for our reception in downtown Raleigh last night and they were amazing! It was important to us to have live music at our wedding and they did not disappoint! As soon as we got to the reception guests were raving about the music during the cocktail hour. Clifton and Burke even learned a song for our first dance and we keep bringing up how special that was. They had everyone enjoying themselves the whole night. Melonbelly played a huge role in our wedding and we feel lucky to have had them!

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!
We worked with these guys at a Mast Farm Inn Wedding and we HIGHLY recommend them! There's nothing like having live music at your wedding/event! We especially love their "Americana" style, and the acoustic feel and harmonica. So perfect for an easy-going, laid-back rustic style wedding! -Very professional, yet easy-going -Highly talented and experienced musicians -They know exactly what to play and at the right time, they play all styles of music and sound amazing! -A pleasure to be around, great personality, they blend right in! We loved how their music really added to the mood and feel of the reception. Such a great choice for your wedding ceremony/reception/party/event!
Melonbelly offers the best live music you can find!
These guys are fabulous! I would recommend anytime, for those looking for an acoustic set...no silly dj games with them. LOVE!!!!!
