Melmo and The Middlemen
Early 70's country rock done right.
well known Denver stage actress Melissa J Morris (Melmo) had been sitting in on a regular basis with The Country Touch, which had her Uncle JB Arnold in the pedal steel chair. They decided to see if they could get a full show behind Melissa, concentrating on the era they had had been mining for her country touch sets. That would be the troubadour crowd of the early 70's, most notably Linda Ronstadt. John had worked previously with Larry Warner and knew he liked that music. Larry brought in Cole and Bill and after a short but intense rehearsal schedule the band opens for the first time at Parrot's in Firestone on New Year's Eve 2016.
