Dance the night away at the Winter Warm-Up Dance on February 3, featuring the Motown funk beats of The Mellotones, all while supporting the Marigold Cultural Centre in this lively fundraiser.
The Mellotones have been bringing their high-octane party to stages around the world. Lighting up dance floors wherever they go, the R&B Funk band is an 8-piece powerhouse. From corporate events to festivals, or from sweaty late-night clubs to weddings, their in-demand, energetic show provides the perfect atmosphere for any occasion.
Combining powerful vocals, dynamic horns, and a groovy rhythm section with a catalogue that dives deep into the history of soul, funk, disco, and R&B music, The Mellotones recall an era dominated by the classics of Motown, Stax, and Chess Records.
The members – Jeff Mosher (vocals/saxophone), Jody Lyne (trumpet), Eric Landry (trombone), Sean Weber (lead saxophone), Brad Conrad (guitar), Ian Mosher (keyboards), Mike Farrington Jr. (bass), and Damien Moynihan (drums) – are a remarkably tight unit. Equipped with a wealth of experience as road-tested session players and backup musicians for ECMA and JUNO Award-winning artists, The Mellotones are a hard-working, well-oiled collection of some of the region’s best performers.
Over their long career, the band has not only garnered a devoted fan base, but also the opportunity to sit in with acts such as David Foster, Dan Akroyd, The Free Nationals, Nathan East, and even Dennis Rodman. In 2015 & 2019, The Mellotones toured with renowned blues guitarist Matt Andersen as his backing band.
Guaranteed to deliver a night of exceptional entertainment for the young and the young at heart, The Mellotones are a surefire party hit ideal for any event.
The Mellotones celebrated their 25th anniversary as a band in 2022. A rare silver celebration for any band in the music industry.
