The Melanie Susuras Band -MSB- is the perfect blend of catchy songwriting, breathtaking vocal talent and dazzling musicianship. Whether you attend an all-out rockin’ full-band show or an intimate acoustic performance, the fire and passion comes through loud and clear. MSB’s acoustic driven rock is a blend of folk, rock and funk that adds up to create an extremely danceable sound.
From the clubs of Denver Colorado, The Melanie Susuras Band rose to the pinnacle of the local music scene in 1999 with their debut album Barefoot Again. That summer, they shared the stage with Sheryl Crow, The Indigo Girls, Sarah McLachlan and The Dixie Chicks when they were awarded the honor of playing the 1999 Lilith Fair. Since then, MSB has made many guest appearances with a variety of acts including Tab Benoit, Darden Smith, Stacy Earle, Lowen and Navarro, Styx & Peter Frampton and continues to flourish as one of the Denver-area’s favorite original acts.
MSB’s CD Stop to Stand is once again a testament to the fact that Melanie is a world class singer/songwriter with a powerful, yet smooth vocal style. Melanie is not a lone talent in the Melanie Susuras Band. This band is one solid unit and includes the sultry backing vocals of newest member, Amanda Ray, skilled lead guitar by Eddie Garcia, solid low-end from Jon Burquest on bass guitar and driving force David “D2” Derby on drums and percussion. This lineup has caught the attention of MSB fans and crowds grow with each new show.
The chemistry of the band is evident creating an inviting live stage presence that reels you in at the first note and keeps you there until the last.
