Melanie Hayes and the Meltones


Vocalist - Bass, Drums, Trumpet, Keyboard, Background Singer, Harmonica, Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle.


I am working up a new idea to extend the Meltones....a comedy and sound for the band, a show, an eclectic band of ole time jazz, swing specifically. I need a multi musician, okay....who wouldn't like that!,or someone that can play a alto sax,or a keyboard with synth, and also sing harmonies and some leads as well. A guitar player with a Roland gr33 would be great. I have some very different things goin' on for someone who can do that... and fun! I am a serious musician and have already played Knoxville venues but if you are looking for something really unique that's the Good Time Rewind. Most say my music is eclectic. Michael Gill described the Meltones on his KMA ad for me,as a "speak easy" kind of sound....I am changing that somewhat but I LOVE THE OLD 30'S THROUGH THE 50'S JAZZ/SWING. mostly very early 30's and 40's Swing, as in Stuff Smith, Fats Waller, Nat Cole, Pat Flowers, Slim and Slam, Oscar Peterson, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, the Spirits of Rhythm, but I also mix it up occasionally with other types of tunes, motown,cajun or an occasional ballad. ..some with a folky or bluegrass feel, others bluesy like Big Mamma Thornton. Look up the website that is posted when you google goodtimerewind and contact info is on there. or Email me at LOGFMDA[at] ya, and you know it's not spelled "who"[dot]com Also have a band that I'm looking for a certain sound. So please put the word "musician" in the title of the email. Looking forward to meeting you. Must be professional but looking for a new project that is different..
