If you have ever found yourself wondering where the music was coming from, because you had never heard anything like that before, then chances are you have been to one of Mel Knapp’s shows. His unique bass playing and funky style earned him the nickname “Funky- Fingers”. After spending most of his time playing bass with the Gulf Coasts finest musicians, he started playing solo shows and quickly became a sought after soloist and lead guitarist. After honing in on his craft and spending more time on his songwriting, Mel decided to take his music to different shorelines and spread his music in new places. When he is not playing music in the Virgin Islands, he can be found writing new music, and playing all over the Gulf Coast.
