One of the premier acoustic acts in the Carolinas, Melonbelly specializes in providing a fun variety of live acoustic music with an authentic southern regional feel. They are a favorite of corporate clients who are looking to create a unique experience for out of town guests. Shows feature intricate guitar playing, vocal harmony, ukulele, harmonica and percussion to popular songs in a variety of styles and tempos. They have been featured entertainment for events hosted by Toyota, Mercedez-Benz, Wells Fargo, Coca-Cola, Carhartt, Makers Mark, BMW, Omega, UNC, UNC Charlotte, Clemson University, and NC State, to name a few. Many event planners in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee rely on Melonbelly to bring a comfortable southern charm to accent their events. The acoustic duo does not require much space, which makes them an ideal choice for events in small to medium sized venues where a larger band might not be appropriate. Another advantage we have found is that they can easily control their volume so that guests can enjoy conversation and network without having to yell above the music. 

Having performed together for nearly fifteen years, Burke Long and Clifton Castelloe bring a wealth of experience working in all levels of special events from intimate dinners to large, outdoor festival style performances. They are equally comfortable in a Country Club ballroom, beside a lodge in the Appalachian mountains, at a low country boil near the beach, or inside a barn next to the BBQ buffet! They are prompt, responsive, reliable and fully-insured. Find many satisfied customer reviews here on the website. 

You will notice many of those satisfied customers are brides and grooms! Whether you are planning a rehearsal dinner, ceremony or wedding reception, Melonbelly can help to make the music for your wedding day memorable and fun for you and your guests! Melonbelly was voted "Favorite Entertainment" for 3 Years Running by The Bride's Book. They have been a Couples Choice Award Winner on WeddingWire and they are a preferred vendor at many exclusive hotels, resorts, and venues throughout the Southeast. Consider Melonbelly for your rehearsal dinner, ceremony and cocktail hour, or full reception. DJ and MC services (announcing the wedding party, first dances, cake cutting, toasts, etc) are all included!!! Be sure to check availability NOW as Melonbelly books far in advance.
