We say...

The Melvin Hancox One Man Show is an off-the-wall night of out-of-this-world rock & roll drenched in psychedelic rain…

They say...

The first two decades of rock and roll drenched in psychedelic rain.

​“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.

Born to song writer and playwright Stephen and artist Lynette of late Melvin has had material played on Rick Wakeman’s Planet Rock Show, Zoe Green’s Blues and Beyond and most recently on Cerys Matthews BBC Radio 2 Blues Show along with writing and television work.

He has currently formed a band in his own image after many years of bringing his talent to others outfits. Playing his first gigs at 12 yrs., getting his first record deal at 16 yrs. and touring Europe and gaining experience in both radio and television, forming “Vincent Flatts Final Drive” and scoring his second deal at 18 yrs. whilst also touring Costa Rica and The States and guesting on others sessions along the way, through various permutations he has worked with Ray Phillips: Budgie, Man, Tony McPhee, Tom Farnell: Savoy Brown, Canned Heat, Paul Hancox [no relation] ex-legendary Chicken Shack drummer with whom Melvin occasionally performs as “Imagination Lady”, Kex Gorin: Magnum Mick Bonham [yes related] and Ace Kefford, whilst going on to write, produce and release six highly original albums fronting his own trio as well a solo offerings.
