About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Mellow-D's is a unique blend of old and new styles. The band started out as easy an l listening swing/standards outfit then later added blues and a wide variety of music from Ray Charles,Sam Cook, to Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.WE have recently added and recorded Motown, 70's 80's and some 90's dance music to compliment our sets. We found ourselves being asked to play at weddings an numerous events from top 40 dance to blues and so we had to customize our sets to accommodate the event we were entertaining. Eventually we had to learn many styles of music to broaden our horizons. The band has up to six pieces depending on the venue. Any one evening there could be Guitar,bass, Sax,drums and piano fronted by Suzanne Smith and Don Austin two of the most talented singers in North central Florida.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on February 18, 2017From Gainesville, FL

The Dancing Melodies were a pleasure to work with. Richard was a great communicator, keeping in touch, learning our songs and working to make our wedding special. The entire band was talented and played a great evening of music that had guests dancing till the very last set and raving about how much they enjoyed the music. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks Richard and company!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 28, 2015From Gainesville, FL

In a word, awesome. From the start, Richard went out of his way to make us happy. We hired the band for our daughter's wedding, and they took the time to learn every song we requested. They arrived 2 hours early, for the event and visited the venue the week before to be prepared. The musicians in the band are second to none. Everyone loved them, and we danced!! Hire them- you will not be dissapointed!
