After having played over ten years of steady weekly gigs in clubs in Halifax, the Mellotones have devoted fans, both young and old. They are there to give the people what they want; they want to dance! From playing sweaty late night dance floors in clubs to weddings, corporate engagements and festivals, in any situation, the Mellotones deliver an 8 piece, high energy show of R&B favorites from classic Motown, Stax, Funk, James Brown, disco and everything in between. All local 571 members, the Mellotones play and live music full time as performers and educators.

With the talented Jeff Mosher on vocals who doubles on saxophone, the horns are Jody Lyne-trumpet, Eric Landry-trombone, Sean Weber- lead saxophone. The band's rhythm section Brad Conrad on guitar, Ian Mosher-keyboards, Mike Farrington Jr-bass and Damien Moynihan on drums.

The musicians represent years of playing, touring and recording with bands and backing up ECMA and Juno award winning artists. The lineup has inevitably changed over the years but the band has always drawn on the wealth of talented players in the region, especially those with a love of funk music.

Bringing tight harmonies, powerful horns and a funky rhythm section, the 'Tones energetic stage show keeps the party going. Performing so regularly, the band has a camaraderie and a tightness that crowds can't deny. Recently, they have expanded their audience from local clubs to engagements all over the Maritimes including memorable sit-ins with David Foster, Nathan East, Dan Akroyd and even Dennis Rodman! Also, they have been booking festivals and are looking to continue bringing fans to the dance floor in the great and long tradition of Halifax R&B.
