Long time friends Bernie Zinck and Melissa Vidito have been playing music together in various forms for over 20 years. From a duo, to small groups, to large bands, they have done it all.
The two met in high school and moved to Hollywood California where they attended the prestigious Musicians Institute, Bernie for guitar, Melissa for voice. Upon graduation, they moved back to Nova Scotia, where life took them in different directions.
10 years ago Bernie and Melissa formed “The Melberns”, a party band that frequented the Annapolis Valley music scene. After a good run, the band took a break for a few years. Now, The Melberns are returning to the music scene. As the music scene has evolved, so has the band. The Melberns will always be Melissa and Bernie, but they are often joined by an assortment of talented musicians to fill out their sound.
They play a wide range of musical genres, covering a little something for everyone. From pop, blues, rock, soul, R&B, country, folk and more!
