After having played over ten years of steady weekly gigs in clubs in Halifax, the Mellotones have devoted fans, both young and old. They are there to give the people music that gets them on the dance floor. From playing sweaty late night dance floors in clubs to weddings, corporate engagements and festivals, in any situation, the Mellotones deliver an 8 piece, high energy show of R&B favorites from classic Motown, Stax, Funk, James Brown, disco and everything in between. The Mellotones play and live music full time as performers and educators.
With the talented Jeff Mosher on vocals who doubles on saxophone, the horns are Jody Lyne-trumpet, Eric Landry-trombone, Sean Weber- lead saxophone. The band’s rhythm section includes Brad Conrad on guitar, Ian Mosher-keyboards, Mike Farrington Jr-bass and Damien Moynihan on drums.
The musicians represent years of playing, touring and recording with bands and backing up ECMA and Juno award winning artists. The lineup has inevitably changed over the years but the band has always drawn on the wealth of talented players in the region, especially those with a love of funk music.
