The Melton Brothers

THE MELTON BROTHERS Dale and Dennis first turned heads as part of “August” while at the University of Delaware in the late 60’s. The magical blend of their voices, unpredictable and original stylings charmed fans. For a few decades, they were in demand all over the state. They launched Fine Times, a magazine of local music and musicians. Since then, they have been the rhythm section and vocal support for recording artists Shirley Eikhard (“Somethin’ to Talk About”, the hit by Bonnie Raitt), Erin Dickens (founding member of Manhattan Transfer), Jesse Fredrerick, The Watson Brothers Band, Alfie Moss, Vinyl Shockley, and Washboard Bill and have opened for BB King, Muddy Waters, The Chambers Brothers, Buddy Miles, Procol Harum, The Kingsmen and other regional and national acts. The Meltons still write, record and perform today throughout the region.
