The Melton Brothers make the kind of music that gets you tappin’, slappin’, shakin’ and poppin’ from a pin-drop whisper to kickin’ take-your-breath-away grooves. Their style is a blend of groove swing, R&B, country blues and roots rock, and the show is a musical conversation delivering their own songs and stunning interpretations with rhythms and harmonies so tight these guys seem like one soul. Dale's unique organ style with Garth Hudson, Matthew Fisher and Booker T influences is the icing on this rhythmic cake. The world is buzzing from Australia, Japan, Sweden and England to New York, Chicago and LA over their 1979 LP re-discovery, songs the Meltons play today with a fresh spontaneous edge. The Meltons hit their stride in the 70s and early 80s -- at the time their popularity was ignited by an appearance and numerous rebroadcasts of a concert staged in Head House Square, Philadelphia. They were launched into the music cafe and Philly concert circuit, appearing regularly at The Main Point, Grendal's Lair, Perewinkle's, Guthrie's, the Cabaret clubs, John & Peter's and numerous colleges and community concert events. Dale and Dennis have been the rhythm section and vocal support for recording artists Shirley Eikhard ("We Got Somethin’ to Talk About", the hit by Bonnie Rait), Erin Dickens (founding member of Manhattan Transfer), Jesse Frederick, The Watson Brothers Band, Alfie Moss, Vinyl Shockley, and Washboard Bill and have opened for BB King, Muddy Waters, The Chambers Brothers, Buddy Miles, Procol Harum, The Kingsmen and many other regional and national acts.
Fun and funky family music about childhood’s everyday ups and downs! Award-winning kindie rockers Erin Lee and Philip Joseph from the Up Past Bedtime Band sing the joys (and challenges) of being a kid – from accidentally losing your lunchbox to accidentally getting locked in the bathroom.

Accompanied by percussionist Philip Joseph of the Up Past Bedtime Band, she creates a fabulous family concert featuring funky drumming and quirky songs about loose teeth, lost baseballs and staying up past your bedtime.
