North Charleston Premiere of the LION KING
|Dec 4th -15th|
Cravin’ Melon w/ The Grateful Brothers November 29th @ Windjammer
|Playing live in fact is where Cravin’ Melon is at its best, so it’s only fitting that the bio tells the story of the fans, as much as the band. From the fanatical FRC (Front Row Club) to newly indoctrinated “melonheads”, the age range of faithful followers spans 3 generations. Instantly addicting, fun-loving melodies battered up with swaggering southern charm is the classic recipe for a down-home party with Cravin’ Melon as the congenial hosts!|
