What to Expect
We are a 5-piece act, primarily country music, however we can easily perform hours of classic rock music when necessary making us an ideal band for most bars and performances. We are drums, bass, two guitars, and pedal steel. We can travel as far as the client is willing to pay for.
The Billy Melton Band is Billy Melton on Lead Vocals and guitar, Fernando Rosas on Lead Vocals and bass guitar, Gary Black on pedal steel guitar, Robby Carrillo on drums and backup vocals, & Danny Wrenn on Lead Vocals, lead guitar, and harmonicas. Formerly called Playin Country, Billy formed the band to pay tribute to his late Father, Steve Melton. There have been several members of this legacy band over the past few years but the band finally settled in 2018 on these 5 band members and decided to make the name change. Located in sunny Yuma, Arizona the guys have collectively over 150 years of stage experience. The Billy Melton band will perform anywhere and are just as comfortable on a bar-room stage as they are on a concert stage. Playing an incredible variety of Classic Country music and Classic Rock Music form the 60s and 70s and even more current Country music. Check us out also on FaceBook.
Additional Booking Notes
We have our own front line PA will cover most all club gigs but large concerts and outdoor events will require a larger PA provided by others.
We require 120 V single phase power to the stage.
We are a 5 piece band with pedal steel. A stage 20' w X 10' deep is perfect but we can adapt to smaller.
