New Bandmates

We have new bandmates! We have had a few members come and go over the last year or so, but now we have a couple of amazing ladies playing with us! What is so amazing about these women? Well, for one they didn’t play the instruments they play in the band before they started playing with us, but they loved our band and us so much they decided to learn the instruments and they are KILLING IT!

So who are these new members? One is Tonya Breaux’s little sister Brooke. The other member is Brooke’s wife, Rachel. Brooke plays the bass and Rachel plays the drums. We are having so much fun playing with them!

Halloween Freak Out!

Tonight XMELT, StumbleBum, ViQueen and Rad Max are playing at the Twilight Cafe and Bar!

1420 SE Powell Blvd. Doors open at 8 pm – $7 admission – 21+.

XMELT has been pulling out the stops for this show. We’ve painted a backdrop for the stage. We’ve made costumes. We’ll even give you a little sneak peak of the happenings.

Here’s a batwing, shoulder pads and part of a bustier in mid-production. Our entire band is dressing up like another band. Can you guess the band we’re dressing up like? We are even doing a cover by this band. Hint: it’s an all-male metal band that our all-female band is covering.  You know you wanna see this!

Come by tonight! The more the scarier!

XMELT is playing with Apology Calls

Tuesday, August 29th. Doors open at 8 pm.

The Twilight is located at 1420 SE Powell Blvd. $5 cover – 21 and over.

We are having so much fun playing together. You should see the scene! Tonya running around with her wireless guitar, Jen sing-screaming, Graye singing and holding down the bass and Tuesday hitting the drums so hard that she sometimes misses and leaves bruises on herself.

Here’s a video of us from right before our last show: IMG_2929

XMELT At The Lombard Pub!

We’re playing at the Lombard Pub tomorrow night–Thursday– 8/17/17!

Bands start at 9 pm with Manglor Mountain, 10 pm XMELT and at 11 PM The Very Least.

3416 N Lombard Street, PDX.  21 and over – Free Admission.

 

By the way, we are so stoked to have Graye playing bass at the show (she’s the pipsqueak with the dark eyes).  She’s been playing keys and guitar and just jumped onto the bass because we needed some support in that area. Thank you, Graye!!! We are a team effort!

 

We will leave you with this little preview of the bands playing tomorrow night.

Hope to see you there!
