Melody Trucks & Friends
with special guest Vaylor Trucks
Melody Trucks, is a talented vocalist & percussionist who has performed in front of thousands at major music festivals including Peach Fest, Suwannee Rising and Hulaween. As the daughter of the late Butch Trucks (founding co-drummer of the Allman Brothers Band) she has been surrounded by music her entire life.
As a solo artist Melody can be found paving the way for generations to come collaborating with unique music family line-ups touring nationally. She sits on the Board of “Roots Rock Revival” and is also the ambassador to the “Butch Trucks scholarship fund” and has since launched “Road to Roots”, a collaborative effort to bring exceptionally talented young musicians on the road with her to help break them into the music scene in a protected environment while cultivating their own craft and acclimating them to tour life.
Vaylor has spent decades establishing his own musical voice, studying, and performing jazz, progressive, experimental, and avant-garde music with greats such as Pat Martino, Dweezil Zappa, Mike Keneally, Bernard Purdie, Johnny Vidacovich, and Col. Bruce Hampton, as well as establishing The Yeti Trio, an experimental fusion powerhouse for more than 20 years. He and Melody have formed an Allman Brothers Family Tribute Band, Brother and Sister, as well as a concert series in Jacksonville, Florida, called the Blue Jay Sessions.
