Fun wedding duo!!

Melonbelly played at our wedding in Highlands and they were so much fun!!!! Burke was awesome to work with leading up to the event and very responsive to phone calls/emails. People were on the dance floor the whole night and we really enjoyed having them play at our reception! Thank you!!!

Incredible People & Music

Due to COVID-19, we ended up deciding to elope in our backyard with just some family & we planned the whole thing in ONE WEEK. We contacted Melonbelly to see if they could work with us, and they were so incredibly accommodating! They learned our first dance song for us and were overall a pleasure to work with. I 100% would recommend them to anyone looking for fun, chill and easy to work with musicians!

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 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!
