The Melodics

Got to go see The Melodics live on Friday night in Melbourne! Excellent show, with some great players.

It was a five-piece band with a bass player, drummer, saxophonist, pianist, and vocalist, with a guest rapper/singer.

The music styles ranged from hip-hop to reggae to funk and each were handled expertly. The sax player especially had some real talent and improvised through a great deal of the set, as did the pianist and bass player. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure there was also a fair bit of free-form rap in there. The lead was pretty good, reminded me a bit of the Cat Empire. The drummer also had some really nice moves.

All in all, a great night out.
