Blues City Music owner, Lynn Burke, plays rhythm/lead guitar in his own Southern Rock band "House of Melody Band", in the Memphis, Tennessee area. 

House of Melody Band is a hard charging Southern Rock band based out of Memphis, Tennessee.  We specialize in doing charitable fund raising events at medium to large outdoor festivals.  In 2012, we released our first EP titled, "Turn It Up", which featured our versions of four iconic Lynyrd Skynyrd songs.  As successful as that has become, the most important facet of this project is the continued support we provide via CD and download sales to the House of Melody School of Music Education also in Gravel Ridge, Arkansas.  Putting smiles on the faces of children and families participating in music programs has been amazing to see.  If not for the House of Melody Band, most of these classes wouldn't exist. 

House of Melody Band has also opened up for The Marshall Tucker Band and The Eric Gales Band at several different festivals. 

5 November 2020 House of Melody finally finished their 2 year project of their own version of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird".  Preproduction was accomplished at Red House Studios in Gravel Ridge, Arkansas.  From there, most of the core of the recordings were recorded at American Recording Studio in Memphis, Tennessee.  Slide guitars were recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and back up vocals were recorded at Avon Recording Studios in Hong Kong, China. 

There are 7 digital download masters now available at all standard outlets, but there will also be a 12" 180 gram 4 page gate fold vinyl LP master and a Dolby Atmos master available very soon.  Turn It Up.
