the Melvin hancox band | 4pm - 5pm

Rich Evans & Lost the Plot will have got this festival well and truly started by now and get your festival dancing wellies in full flow as we welcome  this amazing Birmingham based band to the Water's Edge Festival ....


The Melvin Hancox Band will get this festival going with a real bang! The first two decades of rock and roll drenched in psychedelic rain ...... This will be a performance to remember folks!

Melvin has had material played on the BBC, Rick Wakeman’s Planet Rock Show and live interviews and sessions on mainstream national radio along with writing and television work.

“The word genius is often over used but what else could the man whose show stopping performance at Abertillary Blues Festival on his ’57 custom three pick-upped black beauty Les Paul be coined”, “Flights and notations of mystery and imagination crashed to Earth like space shrapnel” and a more to the point quote “Why isn’t this man a star?”. Just a few of the many positive media quotations Melvin Hancox has experienced of late.
