Influences range from AC/DC to Led Zeppelin to Speed Racer, The three stooges and the Little Rascals.
Mel discovered a love for playing rock and roll in the early 80's when he joined the Living Past (an original band formed at the Rancocas Valley high school). From there Mel's musical aspirations took a back seat, but his black acoustic was always near by and played often for personal enjoyment.
In '97 Mel joined an acoustic act called Acoustic Sauce, since then has played with You,Lou & Who, Dot Com This! and The HAZBINZ.
Mel has a wide vocal range and an ability to cover many styles of music. His Led Zeppelin covers are pretty amazing.
Mel has said "as long as my hands let me I will play guitar and as long as I have a voice I will sing" On many a rocking night Mel will be found playing his acoustic for every one in between sets. With the energy of the energizer bunny and the memory of an elephant(he knows all the words) Mel just wants to Rock Your World.
