August Summer Concert Series: Melomane

Friday, August 5, 2022 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

New York's MELOMANE make catchy, cinematic rock music. Their rocking and textured sound has been compared to such disparate acts as Elvis Costello, Calexico, Wings, Belle & Sebastian and Stereo lab.

Over the band’s career, Melomane have performed regularly in NYC, Europe, and at festivals and venues throughout Europe. They were sponsored by the US embassy in Moscow for concert series in Russia. Melomane have shared stages with The National, Wilco, Keren Ann, Luna, Fastball, Eleni Mandell, and many others.

Songs by Melomane are regularly featured on TV shows such as HBO’s Real Sex, Discovery Channel’s Anthony Bourdain No Reservations, and many others.

For this show, the members of Melomane are:
 - Pierre de Gaillande - guitar and vocals
 - Daria Grace - bass and vocals
 - Quentin Jennings - keys and vocals
 - Jason Molina - drums
 - Daniel Basiletti - trumpet


Body Kite is an experimental improvised dance-rock band started by Pierre de Gaillande featuring a rotating cast of musicians. Grooves are created live on stage with drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and horns, as well as electronic loops and percussion layered on to achieve maximum funkiness, aiming for “liftoff” for audience and band alike. For fans of Krautrock, LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads, and Bitches Brew-era Miles Davis.

Members of Body Kite:
 - G Money Menke - guitar
 - Q Ball J - keys
 - J Molina drums
 - D Basil - accordion
 - Twin Korgs - trumpet
 - P Dogg - bass and trumpet
