  • Reviews / Testimonials

    "Just wanted to say thanks to you and the band- you were amazing! Paolo absolutely loved you guys and as he is a musician that's even higher praise. Everyone had a great time and I think there are a few sore feet and heads this morning!!"

    "I booked Melanie and her band for a 60th birthday celebration for my wife. Melanie was a huge hit with everyone, she sang pitch perfect from start to finish with a choice of songs that had everyone dancing throughout the night. Melanie is a true professional and I cannot recommend her enough and we all will be following her career with great interest and will have no hesitation in booking Musicology again."

    "I had no hesitation in choosing Melanie to sing at my wedding, having seen her perform numerous times before, even better with her band! They were amazing and our first dance song was sensational, I was really touched they learnt it for me, without need for words . I couldn't recommend Musicology more. Melanie is the consummate professional, and the whole process of booking the band was simple and problem-free."
