Tonight’s Musician: Mel Melton & the Wicked Mojos

Mel Melton and the Wicked Mojos perform songs filled with stories of Mel’s road trip adventures through Louisiana, Texas, Chicago and North Carolina. The food and music Mel learned to love in Louisiana brought him into the limelight as a local Cajun chef, garnering the nickname “Zydeco Chef.”  After opening up for top-line artists during his forty-plus year musical career, he shared the stage with the bands that played at his flagship restaurant, Papa Mojo’s Roadhouse in Durham, North Carolina. Nothing describes Melton better than a review from years ago, titled “Melton Cooks Onstage and Off!”

Our musical performances happen rain or shine under our covered Pavilion on the BeatBox stage. In the event of extreme weather, such as flooding, ice or lightning, performances will be canceled. Follow us on Instagram for updates on time changes or cancelations.
