Looking to download the full bio, discography, and latest updates from One Man Funk Band? Look no further. One Man Funk Band is a media-savvy solo artist who loves to collaborate on a variety of projects, and is always on the lookout for the next challenge.
Rob Melso is not only an accomplished singer/songwriter, and composer, but he is The One Man Funk Band. Using a multitude of musical instruments along with looping pedals and effects, The OMFB creates intricate and danceable songs from scratch live and on the spot. Not only has he embraced the looping craze, but he has mastered it!
Born and raised outside of Philly, Rob won some notoriety after in 2008, his alternative folk song "Kiss You Now" recorded with Tribe Sound Studios was featured in the Independent Film, "99% Sure" by Alpaca Pictures. Soon after in 2009, Rob moved to Brooklyn, NY in pursuit of a career in music.
Here is where the One Man Funk Band was born. Wanting a full band feel, but without the need for costly and difficult multi-musician band rehearsals, Rob pieced together an elaborate loop pedal and effects set up ultimately creating a convincing and funky full band sound. From there, Rob could frequently be found headlining the funk music scene and collaborating with hip hop artists in Brooklyn, Queens and the LES.
In 2015 he picked up and moved to Nashville. There he continued to fine tune is craft and play shows with some of the finest musicians in the area, performing at such notable venues as Cafe Coco and the Exit Inn.
In 2019 his journey led him to the Denver, Colorado area. Presently, Rob is working on expanding his repertoire of songs and jumping head first into the local music scene. Keep a look out for tour dates to be announced in Fall of 2019.
