Welcome to our About Page


Hi From Mel!


From Heatwave’s humble beginnings as a Tribute Motown Band over 10 years ago, we have since broadened our repertoire and vision to be one of the most sort after Corporate Bands in Melbourne.

Hi I’m Mel the creator / manager / lead vocalists of Heatwave.  My passion and constant focus is providing the most engaging, talented corporate performances in Melbourne, country Victoria, interstate and overseas.  I believe there are a couple of crucial ingredients in making this happen.

1. I choose to run the band as it should be run. With honesty and integrity. We are one band not a franchise. What you see is what you get with Heatwave onboard as all of the Heatwavers are permanent members not a mix bag of random musos.  Ok so at least you know I’m passionate!

2. Having amazing musicians by my side. The Heatwave musos are not only incredibly talented but share the same professionalism, passion and down right lovely to work with.

3. Our clients, agencies and business partners.  I respect and value all of the performances, recommendations and always look forward to our many chats visualising and planning the new events in the works.

4.  Ok so this should have been number one!  My family – yep I’m a mum, wife, sister and daughter and without the support from the ones you love, Heatwave wouldn’t be who we are today!

Welcome to all things Heatwave
As a leading corporate band in Melbourne, Heatwave have the experience, talent and showmanship to bring wow factor to your next event.
