Melanie brings a unique flair to the stage with her wide repertoire of musical style
as a conguero, drum set
player, hand drummer
& back up singer.
With over 10 years of live performance experience, her fit, feminine flair draws all ages to her percussion playing night after night. Her energetic and exciting performance, knowledge in music performance, professional percussion playing, competitive dance, acting and modeling, offers an unforettable show every single time.
Melanie started her music career as a pianist at the age of 9. That passion floated between instruments including clarinet, french horn, trumpet, guitar and ukulele until it finally landed in percussion. She developed a love for percussion towards the end of high school and went on to study at the University of Tennessee as a Percussion Performance major.
