The Orlando based band believes that their unrestrained music sets them apart from other bands and makes them standout from the crowd. “The music we create can vary in sound and style, quickly switching from a reggae feel to a blues feel and then into a rock feel all in one song,” said the band." - Kat Coffin of AXS
The Mellow Relics are a five piece group dedicated to putting their own personal spin on ska. Branding themselves as "Groove Rock," The Mellow Relics take influence from acts such as Phish, Slightly Stoopid and John Butler Trio and have a sound easily distinguished by the driving melodies of the guitar and saxophone which pair perfectly with the melodic bassline and vocals, all coming together with the adjuvant drum beat. With all five members hailing for distinctly different musical backgrounds, each has something different to offer to the overall extraordinary off-beat sound of up and coming act, The Mellow Relics. The group just recently released their self titled EP "The Mellow Relics" and can be streamed via soundcloud. The group has a number of upcoming performances in the Orlando area, and will be performing as part of a fundraiser for Second Harvest Food Bank, at Paddy's on West Fairbanks, September 19th at 9 P.M.
