Ska for all occasions: Melosa's Grand Devon Tour
Some call them a '10 headed festival strength ska machine'. Legend has it that their latin brass lines, funk fueled bass and ska rhythms can make even the lamest duck shake his tail feather. And I've heard it said that in some parts of Slough, Melosa has been all but banned for exceeding the annual allotted amount of awesome.
You'd think that after rocking gigs in Exeter, Bristol, Boomtown Fair and Plymouth Volksfest, that the 10 deep band would be done with the festival season but as the Indian summer rolls on, so too does Melosa. With 3 dates this weekend and two festivals in September, the time to get your skank on is now.
