Orb Mellon plays a show at the brewery on Saturday, October 21st from 3-6 pm!
Orb Mellon is the blues moniker of Mike Malone, founder and guitarist of the seminal 1990s indie rock band and Sony/Epic recording artists Dirt Merchants.
Orb Mellon’s blues mines the raw energy of 20th Century American roots music, particularly whiskey fueled house party delta blues. Influenced by the likes of Bukka White and Junior Kimbrough, Orb Mellonperforms pure, sonically aggressive original blues, free from any quaintness or historicism, prompting one early reviewer to identify Orb Mellon’s work simply as “blues in all its primeval glory.” He has performed extensively around the eastern United States sharing the stage with such diverse acts as David Johansen (NY Dolls), Daddy Long Legs and Charlie Parr in addition to being a long time touring partner of Brownbird Rudy Relic. In 2015, the Orb Mellon Trio was formed with harpmaster Dave “Kosher Kid” Robbins and drummer Mark Hennessy.
